Tetsuo II: Bodyhammer

  • Film

Time Out says

Significantly more accessible than Tsukamoto's first, black-and-white, 16mm foray into new-flesh-horror (Tetsuo: The Iron Man), this colour, hi-tech reworking of the original is a relentlessly inventive sci-fi cinepoem, whose story - again about a man suffering strange and deadly anatomical changes, which this time result partly from the rage he feels at his son being abducted - is largely an excuse for a series of virtuoso sequences based around the motif of physical/psychological mutation. Manga merges with Cronenbergian grotesquerie in a violent, frantic, technically audacious epic full of images that are alternately homoerotic and heart-stopping in their cruel brilliance.
