Death Powder (1986) IMDb

Extent

Review refers to a VHS copy with both Japanese and English subtitles, the latter obviously inaccurate but the former very degraded and hard to read.

Commentary

I’d gladly rewatch it with a good copy. I don’t suppose there is much of a story, but the concept of fusing cyberpunk—at this midway point between Burst City (1982) and Akira (1988)—with psychic powers and body horror due to some mysterious emerging technology is appealing.
