Tetsuo: The Iron Man is a balls to the wall, bug-nuts crazy, 1989 Japanese cyber-punk film about a man that slowly begins to grow metal from his body. It’s stark black and white visuals and spastic revolutionary editing can still be seen as a major influence on filmmakers working today. In short … search it out and watch it if you haven’t already (Hopefully, you don’t have a shaky stomach). Director Shinya Tsukamoto expanded his universe (and his budget) with the 1992 “quasi-sequel” Tetsuo: Body Hammer. Since, the director has gone on to direct the criminally underrated A Snake of June and Nightmare Detective. He returns to the bodily horror with the third installment, Tetsuo: The Bullet Man, in the series that is set for a limited release through IFC Midnight this year. Continue on to watch the new US trailer.
Judging by the trailer, it seems Tsukamoto is giving fans more of the same … which might not be a bad thing. One thing is for sure, it certainly looks like there is more action in the new entry into the series. Tetsuo: The Bullet Man can now be seen On-Demand and will see a limited theatrical run later this year. For more on the film, you can visit the IFC Midnight site here.
