Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Tetsuo: The Iron Man is a 1989 Japanese cyberpunk Body Horror film by cult film director Shinya Tsukamoto. This, his third film, is an extremely graphic but also strikingly-filmed fantasy shot in the same low-budget, underground-production style as his first two films. Tetsuo established Tsukamoto's fame and created his worldwide cult following. It was followed by two sequels, Tetsuo II: Body Hammer and Tetsuo III: The Bullet Man.It follows the tale of a man who, after hitting a metal fetishist with his car, attempts to hide the mess by dumping the body into a ravine. To his dismay, he finds that the dead man is getting his revenge - by forcing the driver to transform into a walking heap of scrap metal.Not to be confused with that Tetsuo or that Iron Man, though there are certainly similarities with the former.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })

Nightmare Fetishist: The antagonist is called "The Metal Fetishist". When he was alive, he enjoyed shoving bits of metal into his body. After the main characters run over him, the protagonist's girlfriend gets aroused. She later gets aroused when she shoves a knife into the main character's neck in hopes of killing him. She didn't stab his neck first...

Downer Ending: The first film. The protagonist and antagonist merge together to form one organism and they will use their combined power to destroy the world, due to the last lines of the film. Also, for the Salaryman, he seems to have become fully submissive and under the control of the Metal Fetishist (although he may just be pretending to act like that just to avoid more pain).

Black and Grey Morality: The Salaryman and his girlfriend do not seem to act like good people, considering that their reaction to hitting a wounded man with their car is to dump the corpse (or not) in a ravine and have sex over where they dumped him, most likely with the body facing them, considering the angle we see it from. So that means that the Metal Fetishist should be better, right? Well...

The woman who chases the protagonist on the subway seemed like one as well. In fact, since the antagonist dies, comes back, and infects the protagonist, one could almost see this as some crazy zombie flick.

Rule of Scary: Watching this movie can bring up many questions, such as "How is the protagonist able to live with all that metal growing out of his body?" or "How are the rocket jets in his ankles fueled?" or even "How is this even possible?" The answer to all these is because Shinya Tsukamoto hates you and does not believe in this peculiar idea you call "sleep".

comment
Surprisingly Good English: The Bullet Man's dialogue certainly counts. It helped that the script is translated from Japanese, not to mention this being (so far) the only film to feature Americans.

All Just a Dream: The main character has a dream that his girlfriend turns into a machine-woman with a metallic probe that seems to be made from a vaccum cleaner. She then proceeds to rape him with it... and yes, it is every bit as disturbing as it sounds.

comment
Le Film Artistique: The movies are black and white (except the sequels), has a small budget, uses unusual film techniques and the plot is full of Mind Screw and very open to interpretation, if we add that the movies are Japanese the series fit the trope perfectly.
