'Tetsuo: The Iron Man & Bullet Man' FINALLY Gets A HD Release... Japanese Cult Film Lovers Rejoice!!!!

I have a very weird and eclectic taste in films. My Top 10 film list would make most peoples heads spin (I MIGHT just post this list someday) because my choices would be so against the grain. I love mainstream Hollywood movies, movies with big stars, and commercial films as much as the next guy... but give me a weird indy film, especially a foreign indy film, and I will love it to death!!!! Enter Tetsuo: The Iron Man, one of the freakiest fucking movies I have EVER seen in my entire life. It comes from director Shinya Tsukamoto, who is a legend in the Japanese film industry. The movie is a bizarre trip down the rabbit hole and features some of the sickest scenes I have ever seen on film. It spawned two sequels as well, Tetsuo: The Body Hammer and Tetsuo: The Bullet Man. The Body Hammer just took the franchise to the next level and now the first two films (Iron Man & Body Hammer) will be released in High Definition Blu Ray format for the first time ever... and I for one can't wait to see this film burst off the screen. They hit in October and a cool ass trailer has been put together for this release. Hopefully the third film will follow soon (It is currently streaming on Netflix). If you like weird cult films and have never seen this one, get on it ASAP. Check out the trailer after the jump...

  1. The first one was the weirdest movie I have ever seen. Even stranger than Eraserhead.
