5. Tetsuo: The Iron Man

IMDB LogoIMDB Star
7.0/10
Rotten Tomatoes Logo77%
Reelgood Logo
72/100
Released: 1989
Horror, Science-Fiction

What it's about: Tetsuo: The Iron Man is a 1989 Japanese cyberpunk film by cult-film director Shinya Tsukamoto produced by Japan Home Video. This, his third film, is an extremely graphic but also strikingly-filmed fantasy shot in the same low-budget, underground-production style as his first two films. 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.

Where to Watch: Available to stream on a subscription service (Shudder & Kanopy).
