Eyeborgs Finally Eyeing a DVD Release Date

I swear I didn’t think this day was ever going to come. I remember first reporting on the Adrian Paul/Danny Trejo killer robot flick Eyeborgs back in 2005, and ever since we would go long periods of time before hearing anything new. Five years later Eyeborgs will finally be coming home to a DVD player near you this summer.

In the near future as fear of terrorism escalates, privacy is a luxury of the past. Now, in people’s homes, on the streets, in the workplace, everyone is constantly being watched by mobile robotic cameras known as “Eyeborgs.” But are the cameras just watching … or are they up to something else? As an increasing number of people die in bizarre ways, federal agent Gunner Reynolds (Adrian Paul, TV’s “Highlander”) is determined to find out after he realizes that a camera has recorded an event much differently than he recalls.

To give you an idea how long Richard Clabaugh’s self-described “24 meets The Terminator” has been in the works, I recall at the time it was first announced the Patriot Act and right to privacy was a major social controversy. Today, not so much.

Eyeborgs at long last will see the light of day when Image Entertainment releases it to digital on July 6th. DVD extras will include deleted scenes and behind-the-scenes featurette.

‘Bout time. Have a look at the trailer if you haven’t already, and pre-order your copy from the EvilShop below. Word is the film is actually pretty decent.

    • Unfortunately our society (at least here in the States) seems to have given up sanity and replaced it with irrational fear and partisanship at all costs.

      • Yes, but irrational fear and partisanship created by our government as a means to control our every move. “Give up your privacy and certain freedoms and we’ll protect you from the evil brown monsters.” And people have more than complied.

        “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

        • I was downtown just the other day and remembered watching the news and seeing how a man was caught commiting a crime due to camera footage. SO, I looked up. I looked on light posts. Tunnel entrances. Side streets. HOLY FUCK MAN! I could not believe all the cameras above me in a city I frequent every day. Worst part, I have never noticed them before. I just ordered 57 new hoodies onlne today hehe. DAMN!

          • They’re watching us and we don’t care because we’ve been conditioned to believe it’s for our own good. This is a policed state but people don’t mind as long as they get the latest iPhone. God bless America.

          • It’s more than all that.

            It is social networking, the insane value placed on celebrity and the problem that most media is interested in creating highly rated drama as opposed to telling the truth.

            Look at Facebook and their ‘privacy’ policy. Yet millions of people think nothing of reporting their every fart to everyone they know and a lot of people they don’t.

            Knowledge is power; freely give up all knowledge about yourself and you’ve become public domain. It is more than an aesthetic concern.

          • With progress the government has found new ways to keep track of us legally. All these tracking devices on phones and cars and feeding our lust for fame, as you noted, through social networking sites, allowing us to find one another thus being able to track down whomever we want, tracking our emails, etc. We all want to be famous and noticed, so we willingly give up our privacy for that.

    • It’s interesting that you bring this up. Ever see the movi8e Surrogates with Bruce Willis? It’s set in the future and there’s a guy sitting in front of a ton of monitors peering into houses and steets all over the city. I saw the City of Chicago’s control room once and it’s the exact same thing. There are cameras everywhere.
