Aliens are invading the Earth and inserting themselves into humans, turning them into slave cyborgs, hosts for the parasitic alien life forms.
When Sachiko is infected and transformed, it’s up to her lover Yoji, who himself is already half-infected, to save her with his new-found mutated state and deadly weapons growing out from his body.
Part tragic love story, part body horror, MEATBALL MACHINE is an extreme steam punk gore fest which has stood the test of time since its first release and has since spawned a sequel MEATBALL MACHINE: KODOKU.
