Tetsuo II: The Body Hammer


Part of All Monsters Attack! New restoration! Like Evil Dead II, Tetsuo II: Body Hammer is more of a re-working of its predecessor than a true sequel. But also like Evil Dead II, this second chapter from underground legend Shinya Tsukamoto is twice as intense, twice as frenetic, and twice as unhinged! In Body Hammer, the Iron Man from the first film continues his mutation . . . into a cyberkinetic gun. When a vicious gang kidnaps his son, the Iron Man is forced to find justice. This outrageous body horror gem is ready to exhilarate after being completely absent from theater screens since its 1992 release.

“Those who see it are not likely to forget it, and its images will linger as a warning of post-apocalyptic urban critical mass.” Roger Ebert
