Directed by Shinya Tsukamoto
This surreal Japanese cult sensation profiles a man who mutates into a metal being. Somewhere between a modern-day nightmare and a techno-fetishist's ultimate fantasy, this incredible film from Shinya Tsukamoto took viewers on a surreal journey into a dark and disturbing world where self-inflicted body transformations and post-human women form the fabric of a strange new reality. Likened to the work of David Lynch and David Cronenberg, TETSUO molds explosive violence, bizarre sexual imagery and jet-black humor into a cinematic experience unlike any you've seen.

Cast: Tomorowo Taguchi, Kei Fujiwara, Shin'ya Tsukamoto
A fever dream of a movie which gives me heavy Akira vibes. It should just be experienced, the cinematography is hard to put into words.
If you go into trying to pick it apart, you probably won’t enjoy it. But if you just want to hear some awesome music, see some impressive visuals, and give into the madness, it is a great watch.
100% worth experiencing
Now this is what I want from Shudder.
