Hardware Uncut on DVD? HELL YES!

Cast Fills Out for Don't Be Afraid of the DarkSomeone pinch us. We have to be dreaming! Wait … we are awake? Badass! Joining the likes of Phantasm II and Night of the Creeps on the movies we never thought would see an official release onto DVD ever — BUT ARE list is the Richard Stanley 1990 sci-fi/horror cult classic Hardware!

Rare horror flick resource Diabolik DVD reports that the film will be hitting DVD on September 29th (date subject to change) courtesy of Severin Films.

Even better … this two-disc set is all region and lookin’ pretty sweet! Here’s a look at what we can expect:

  • Uncut Uncensored Version!
  • DD 5.1 Audio
  • Anamorphic Widescreen
  • Audio Commentary with Richard Stanley
  • Sea of Perdition – Short Film
  • Making-of Documentary
  • Early Super 8 Version of Hardware
  • For those of you who have never experienced the goodness that is Hardware — Dylan McDermott (The Practice, Dark Blue) 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.

    Check out the trailer below and look for more on this release soon! This is what you want …. this is what you get!

      This movie is crazy. I haven’t seen it since I was a kid but I’ve been waiting on it!

      Does this mean one day Split Second will be released on a region 1 DVD as well? So sold on this.

      Am I crazy or is the trailer in German?

    • Chainsaw

      Hooray!

      …I wonder if this means they’re considering a remake now?

        Well according to the linear notes in my UK Hardware DVD, Richard Stanley said that he has a script for a sequel and despite the renewed interest in Hardware, he says he might be pitching the sequel as a remake as that’s easier for studio heads to understand.

      Aw bugger, this is getting strange. I recently got my hands on the new UK Hardware DVD from Optimum Releasing and this is exactly the same disc. Well, on Optimum it lists a vintage EPK for it and behind the scenes for some of the scenes. What makes all of this stranger is that I ordered Tunnel Rats a few months ago and now that’s getting released in the USA…

      I’m now afraid to order more European discs because a few days later they might get released stateside in the same editions…..oy vey…

      Weird as hell! I was just looking at my VHS copy YESTERDAY wondering when we’d ever see this, and here it is…Yay!
