Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

A race of alien parasites that has discovered the secret of transforming human flesh into biomechanical weaponry stages a grotesque invasion of planet Earth, only to discover just how mighty the power of love truly is in directors Yudai Yamaguchi and Junichi Yamamoto's unhinged, experimental sci-fi horror hybrid. They possess the ability to transform their hosts into mechanical death dealers who will stop at nothing to see their enemies torn to pieces, and now it appears that mankind is facing certain annihilation. When a pair of young romantics begins to find their bodies riddled with oozing, tumorous globules, the heart is pitted against the mind as the couple's killer instincts gradually begin to overpower their undying love. In the tradition of Shinya Tsukamoto's Tetsuo: The Iron Man, Meatball Machine takes viewers into a horrific and darkly comic world where the flesh turns on the body to horrific effect.
