THE ADVENTURE OF DENCHU-KOZO

Shinya Tsukamoto, USA, 1987, Arrow Films, Horror

“What if TETSUO felt more like an anime about vampires?” — Ian Lindsey, LETTERBOXD

Prior to changing the world with midnight movie sensation TETSUO, Shinya Tsukamoto made THE ADVENTURE OF DENCHU-KOZO — an underground horror mini-epic. Shot on 8mm, ADVENTURE finds Hikari, a kid with an electric pole permanently attached to his back, inventing a time machine and traveling to the future. Once there, Hikari finds himself battling a swarm of punk vampires in an atomic nightmare world. Tsukamoto’s flair for cyberpunk aesthetics and DIY creativity is on full display in ADVENTURE — a perfect primer for what was to come.
