Hardware is a 1990 sci-fi film set in a post-apocalyptic future.
The story involves the head of a killing cyborg found in the desert, which ends up repairing itself and wreaking havoc in the apartment of a sculptress.
Written and directed by Richard Stanley, it stars Dylan McDermott, Stacey Travis, John Lynch and William Hootkins.
A cult sci-fi horror, it hasn’t ever had a proper DVD release due to various rights difficulties until now.
I spoke with Richard Stanley in London recently and we discussed various aspects of the film including: where it was shot, how it got funded, the various influences and the long delay in securing a proper DVD release.
