The sequel is called "Body Hammer: Tetsuo 2." Haven't seen it, but the
VARIETY of a couple of years ago indicated that it had a plot which
connects with one of SCREEN-L's recent threads: a metal freak kidnaps a
boy, and the boy's father tries to get him back. Both villain and father
mutate metalically as in the original film.
