Fans of TETSUO: THE IRON MAN, take note. ANATOMIA EXTINCTION is a J-horror microdose that’s poised to become your new favorite go-to for cyberpunk body horror. The story follows “The Man,” an aggravated citizen who has a disdain for the overpopulation issue in Japan. When he’s targeted by a serial killer, the Man has a choice to make—die by the killer’s hand or join him in exterminating every last human on the planet. A prequel to the infamous TOKYO GORE POLICE from filmmaker Yoshihiro Nishimura, ANATOMIA EXTINCTION is an experimental explosion of pop-art colors, gnarly practical gore effects, and 1990s aesthetics. Newly restored from its original 16mm film elements and back on the big screen for the first time in decades!
