Full-throttle splatter-ific Japanese cyberpunk science fiction/horror at its most aggressive, this mind-blower about alien parasites that turn their human hosts into slave "Necroborgs" will leave you dizzy and drained - in a good way.

Grease monkey Yoji works in a small shop. The best part of his day is watching the cute Sachiko walk by during his breaks. He never feels he is good enough to chat her up however. He comes across an alien parasite and, not knowing better, takes it home. He intervenes a few days later when he sees another grease monkey talk up Sachiko a few days later. The two become friends and she finds herself at his place soon. The parasite takes Sachiko's body over to start.Written by
You had my curiosity but now you have my attention
Meatball Machine is what I like to call "Got a vision but lack funding" because for 13 minutes this short movie achieve nothing to the Japanese cyberpunk genre when the movie itself is an obvious Tetsuo: The Iron Man rip off from the plot and characters with more blood and gore but just like the Tetsuo short movie " Futsû saizu no kaijin (1986)" all great/weird things must come from somewhere so in my humble opinion this short movie actually achieve its goals that is make me interested in the full length feature with the same name in 2005. Check out the movie free on YouTube if you like some fast-paced nonsense to make your day a bit weirder and although there no English subtitle with this kind of movie I don't think you need one to fully understand the story
