Tetsuo II: Body Hammer (1992) - full transcript

Three years after the Metal Fetishist's nightmarish transformation in Tetsuo (1989), the ordinary salaryman, Taniguchi Tomoo, sees his world crumble when fanatic metal-worshipping skinheads abduct his only son. Forced to unleash his dormant destructive power, Tomoo will finally embrace the cathartic effect of the ultimate metamorphosis, as his naked rage transforms the once-feeble flesh into a grisly symbiosis of hard metal and soft tissue. Who dares to stand in the way of the ultimate body-hammer?

Persistent, aren't you ?
Why do you keep following me ?

What are you playing at ? Get lost !

What's the matter ?

Hey, what's the matter ?

Sleepy, Minori ?

Yes !

Last night...

Daddy had a dream

I was in an open space
with my family

I was a child again

with your foster parents ?


- Did you remember ?
- No

But it was...

...a wonderful dream

So peaceful too


I remember...

...being adopted at eight

I've no memories before that.
Strange, isn't it ?

- Your new parents told you nothing ?
- Non.

There aren't even...

...any photos.

How old were you in your dream ?

Excuse me

Minori ! Minori !

There he is !

Help me !

Stop them !

Shall I let you go ?

Please don't

I beg you, please don't !

And him too ?

Damn you !


I'll kill you

You really bug me

Coming for a swim ?

You need to get strong

Shall we go home since you're
so worried about the plants ?

He did it !

That tune...

the woman in my dream...

It must have been my mother
who sang it

Very quietly


How did the training go ?

Go and look for Minori

Please leave us alone

He's not here

You shouldn't leave
the back door unlocked

Stay there !

Where's my son ?

I dropped him.

I'll kill you !

Now I remember...


Something's going to be destroyed

What kind of guy did you pick ?

To avoid accidents...

...he's a mild specimen

Let's start

From inside the man's brain...

...select a really calm image

Watch as I manipulate it

Continue !

Stop !

Continue !


Return to the first image

Fantastic !

The will to kill

that's what counts.

Sacrifice him

We'll give him an oxyde shot

Right now...

He'll corrode away.

This is the fruit of his cells
and my brains

Who'll be the first to test it ?

Why don't you volunteer ?
You'd do

- Let's make ourselves some money
- I don't want money

Destruction is all I need

Well done.

We've been a long time together

Give everyone a shot

With this

the strength of the will to kill

killing him will be simple

you'll be blown to pieces
like your brat

I'm going to do the same to you
as I did to your brat

What the hell is going on ?


he was truly... a god

...a god

Who ?

the man who can make us all gods

He's a fiend

So it wasn't because of...

It's dangerous here. Let's leave


What are you ?

I don't know any more than you

It's true !

Believe me !

Please save me, Kana !

I'm scared !

Help me !

You laughed

You laughed then

You'll laugh when I'm killed

Now I'm really angry

He doesn't seem to care much for you

The old fool didn't design this gun
very well

But why...?

How is he different ?

He used will-power
to transform himself

When he was a kid...

...he was strange

Even when he was bullied...

he never fought back

He always bowed and scraped

But one day, someone snatched...

some gladioli bulbs he treasured

Straight away...

he beat all the other kids up

Most of them died

And his beloved gladioli bulbs
were crushed too

Your husband's name is
Tomoo Taniguchi.

Right ?


Who are you ?

Trust me to come across him

He really is a devil

Tell me what happened to him


Where's Kana ?

We're holding her.

Kill me and she dies

Inject this or she dies.

She'll die !

You don't care if she dies ?

He hasn't changed at all

Hostages don't seem to mean anything

Taniguchi !

Taniguchi Tomoo !

You were always like that

Losing what you loved

Please, tell me

What happened to him ?

Happy birthday...

to you

Take a good look

No !

Happy birthday...

to you.

Happy birthday to you...

Rust and die !

I'll inject you

rust and death

Take a good look !

Ouch ! You got me !

Look what I'm going to do
It's magic

Chin chin, puyo puyo...

Good. Now nobody can beat you

Bang !


When your will an the gun's
are as one...

...you'll be able to kill the dog

You will help me, won't you ?

Your father is the only one in the world

who can make the human weapon

When they see you,
important people will believe me

No !

Don't let him remember

Don't let him remember !

Take a good look !

So... I made it...

I made it...


After that, my big brother
lost his memory

Was it sadness at losing our mother ?

I don't think he felt sorry
he'd killed our parents

He felt...
...the beauty in destruction

that scared him
and he lost his memory

I understand that better than anyone

The strength of his will to kill
always beat mine

My only weapon is my arm

Don't be scared of anything now

You feel the beauty in destruction

So go ahead, destroy

Destroy the greatest thing of all

Pick that up

Inject my body with it


Kana !

It's so peaceful
