Like Tetsuo But Not(?)

I was a kid. It was the early ’90s. I was flipping channels late one night, and a nearby Canadian TV station was showing (almost certainly) movies (as opposed to TV, but who can say for sure).

Y’know “Tetsuo the Iron Man” ? That Japanese, B&W horror sci fi film?

I saw this scene on TV years ago, also in B&W, with a character suffering from conduit-looking-things rocketing out of their skin. Very graphic, even for TV. The sound design was DISGUSTING, and great. It freaked out little-kid-me for ages.

Years later, I thought I found it at last when I saw “Tetsuo The Iron Man”, but as I watched the film, that scene from my late-night-childhood-tv-exploration memory never came up….

COULD THERE BE ANOTHER FILM WITH A SIMILAR SCENE? Perhaps something CANADIAN? WHO KNOWS!?!?
