Tetsuo 1 + 2 Get a British Blu-ray Release

The Iron Man and Body Hammer Come Out in October

The Japanese experimental films Tetsuo: The Iron Man and Tetsuo II: Body Hammer surely aren't everybody's cup of tea but still have many fans. So many that another sequel entitled The Bullet Man was made more than 15 years later.

On October 8th, 2012, Third Window Films will release both movies on Blu-ray for the first time ever. For this release, the films were re-sampled from the original negative and should look as good as never before. Furthermore, the original audio line is used and supplemented with English subtitles.

There is some info regarding the versions that has to be shared:

The Iron Man will basically contain the official uncut version even though there is a first cut which is longer. We have a comparison here. It is rated "BBFC 18" in the UK.

Body Hammer is rated "BBFC 18" in the UK but it is censored as our comparison with the Japanese version shows. The reasons for the cuts are unknown, the BBFC doesn't give any information either. That could mean that it was censored before being submitted to the rating board, be it in the UK or in Japan. If one looks at the cuts, they don't really seem like censorship. A new rating process is not listed in the BBFC database so we can't say whether the version in this release is fully complete or not. However, if that doesn't hold you back, you can order it here.

 

UPDATE: As you can read below in the comment section, Third Window Films clarified that the upcoming releases are not censored in any way.
