This is it, the seminal work of extreme Japanese cyberpunk, newly restored from the original negative by cult director Shinya Tsukamoto himself. “Revolving around the transformation of people into grotesque hybrids of flesh and metal, Tetsuo is above all an overwhelming audiovisual experience, set to a brain-pounding score by Chu Ishikawa and complemented by suitably exaggerated sound effects” (Tom Mes, Midnight Eye).
