Synopsis:
A strange man known only as the "metal fetishist", who seems to have an insane compulsion to stick scrap metal into his body, is hit and possibly killed by a Japanese "salaryman", out for a drive with his girlfriend. The salaryman then notices that he is being slowly overtaken by some kind of disease that is turning his body into scrap metal, and that his nemesis is not in fact dead but is somehow masterminding and guiding his rage and frustration-fueled transformation.

Like No Other - Tetsuo: The Iron Man review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
15/03/2009

This low budget Japan indie kicked up a right storm upon its release. Amazingly energetic, it took no prisoners with its insane pace and inventive use of metal. Only Japan would even consider such a fusion of metal and human to horrific effect. Not since Videodrome had the human form been twisted in such a way to provide entertainment. Shot cheaply, the grainy B&W handheld approach is an ideal match for the Japanese industrial setting with a metallic soundtrack. Much better than the full blown sequel that followed.
