And more goods came in today from Albert Pyun for the new director’s cut of his 1989 film Cyborg, and he promises it is “very violent”. Just how we like it, right?
Found recently by composer Tony Riparetti after being lost for 22 years, this is a slightly restored cut of Cyborg created from two VHS copies of a telecine of the original 35 mm work print. What Pyun provided today is the ending fight scene between Van Damme’s Gibson Rickenbacker and Vincent Klyn as the main villain Fender Tremelo, which is completely different than the released version.
Gibson Rickenbacker is a hired fighter living in an apocalyptic America where a plague has infected most of the United States and the rest of the world. In New York City Gibson encounters a woman named Pearl Prophet (Dayle Haddon). Pearl reveals to Gibson that she is a cyborg who is carrying vital information for a group of scientists in Atlanta who are working on a cure to the plague, and Pearl hires Gibson to escort her back to Atlanta. But Pearl is kidnapped by “Pirates”, a murderous gang led by Fender Tremolo who want the cure for themselves. Gibson, joined by a young woman named Nady Simmons (Deborah Richter), goes in pursuit of Fender and his gang as Gibson sets out to rescue Pearl, stop the Pirates from reaching Atlanta, and defeat Fender, who slaughtered Gibson’s family.
