Tetsuo II: Body Hammer

The first sequel to Tsukamoto’s Tetsuo: The Iron Man, this film is considered by many fans to be superior to the original. Reinterpreting the premise of the first film within a more straightforward action-thriller context, Tsukamoto here depicts a conspiracy of a gang of cyborgs. Their target is a seemingly ordinary salaryman who, in reality, is himself a fusion of man and metal. Newly restored from the original negative by the director himself.
