The Best Sci-Fi/Horror Thriller Since ALIEN, Says Fangoria; Film To Be Restored From Director Richard Stanley's Own Print
-Good one for HALLOWEEN---
LOS ANGELES, CA– Severin Films today announced the October 13th release of the 1990 sci-fi/horror cult classic Hardware, the infamous feature film debut of music video visionary turned writer/director Richard Stanley (DUST DEVIL). Originally rated X by the MPAA and subsequently edited by distributor Miramax, Hardware will be presented uncut and uncensored for the first time ever from a print supplied by Stanley himself. In addition, the limited edition two-disc DVD and Blu-ray will include audio commentary, deleted scenes, behind-the-scenes footage, and Stanley's never-before-seen hour-long Super 8 version of the film.

Golden Globe® winner Dylan McDermott (The Practice) stars as a post-apocalyptic scavenger who brings home a battered cyborg skull for his metal-sculptor girlfriend. But this steel scrap contains the brain of the M.A.R.K. 13, the military's most ferocious bio-mechanical combat droid. It is cunning, cruel, and knows how to reassemble itself. Tonight, it is reborn...and no flesh shall be spared. Stacey Travis (GHOST WORLD) co-stars – along with appearances by Iggy Pop, Lemmy of Motörhead and music by Ministry and Public Image Ltd. – in this kick-ass sci-fi thriller that New York Newsday hailed as thought provoking and disturbing, and Fangoria still calls "gritty, trippy and frightening...Hardware is one of the best horror movies you've never seen."
They say 'once in every generation a plague shall fall upon you', says director Richard Stanley, "and so it is that after an absence of almost two decades I am proud to announce the second coming of Hardware to American shores in its full, savage, psychedelic, utterly unexpurgated and wholly unrated glory. We have relished working with Severin films and Norman Hill of Subversive Cinema – who oversaw the successful 2008 release of DUST DEVIL – to fully restore, remix and remaster Hardware for its first appearance on DVD and to provide the viewing public with an experience unlike anything they have ever seen before. You have been warned!"
