Get chilled to the bones with this film series that explores dark and macabre themes as well as the mysterious occult. The first part of the series features three films by cult favorite Shinya Tsukamoto, who was in Toronto earlier last month for the premier of his film KILLING. Some viewers may find the films disturbing. Viewer discretion is advised.
This cult favourite is the first feature directed by Shinya Tsukamoto. The cyberpunk horror follows the transformation of flesh into machine. After a brief encounter with a metal fetishist, a salary man begins sprouting pieces of metal from his body and having horrific and bizarre fantasies. There will be a short discussion about the film post-screening.
