Part of All Monsters Attack! New restoration! Virtually absent from theater screens since the 1990s, this underground classic from Japan is now available in a brand new restoration! Tetsuo: The Iron Man is filmmaker Shinya Tsukamoto’s unhinged hot take on humankind’s ongoing battle with technology; literally, as a man mutates into a walking, clanking man-machine that terrorizes himself and everyone around him. Warping elements of early Cronenberg, Lynch, and Raimi into a deliriously-paced cyberpunk cocktail, Tetsuo is a body horror manifesto that’s fueled by techno-erotic adrenaline and wrought iron perversion. Unmissable.

“A cyberpunk Eraserhead.” -- Michael Weldon, The Psychotronic Video Guide
