1153. Tetsuo

Directed by Shinya Tsukamoto

It's been awhile since I assigned a zero star rating, but it certainly seems to apply here. I am not a fan of the body horror genre, or giant metal phalluses, so this really didn't do it for me. I am starting to realize that the movies kept out of my edition of the Book were kept out for good reason.

There is no way to give a plot summary of this disgusting movie without disgusting my readers. I'll leave out the gory details and just say that a metal fetishist gets hit by a car by a young couple. Let's just say the kids from I Know What You Did Last Summer got off easy. 

Just gratuitous sex and gore that relies on dated special effects to appear artsy. Definitely did not need to add these scenes to my bank of mental images.

RATING: -----

Interesting Facts:

Certain scenes were used in a Portishead music video.


  1. Oh good grief, I had mercifully forgotten this one .. In fact, a lot of it has been mentally erased, so I will leave it at that and move on , rapidly, in fear I may remember more...

  2. You'll have to let me know how you're able to forget these images.
