On the Twelfth Day of Christmas m True-Love brought to me… …A Nasty Mark-XIII military Warbot head—in a pear tree!Well, not exactly—but that’s the plot of Richard Stanley’s surreal, cyberpunk, brutal, bloodthirsty dreamscape of a sci-fi flick “Hardware”, which you should do whatever you need to do to beg, borrow, or steal a DVD copy. It’s sick, bloody, good stuff.First off, know that “Hardware” director Richard Stanley is a Hollywood wild-man: notorious for all sorts of brooding, decadent fits, he was sacked on the 2nd day of filming for the ill-fated (doomed!) “Island of Doctor Moreau”. He snuck back on set clad in nothing but a dog-mask. Takes guts, Richard—takes guts.Anyway, he was 24 when he helmed this sick, sacrilegious, probably evil little flick about the ultimate Christmas present gone wrong. Wayfaring soldier Moses Baxter (the grounded Dylan McDermott, who brings a lush breeze of reality to all the hynpotically surreal surroundings) finds a severed robot head in the hopelessly irradiated…

What I got, and was completely unprepared for, was a pornographic visual nightmare filled with gratuitous violence and an incoherent plot about some killer Terminator-esque combat droid found in the sands of a post-apocalyptic wasteland that’s transformed into an industrial art sculpture by some hot chick and I remember wanting to walk out of the theater but felt compelled to at least get my (then) six bucks worth before leaving the theater offended and I never looked back… until now.A few years later I picked up…

Hardware = Hard To Watch Hardware is an excellent sci- fi film, I saw it years ago on video and was impressed by Richard Stanley’s claustrophobic direction. But this Euro Cult / Life International release looks like a 3rd generation video tranfer.Just one look at the DVD cover tells you that this has been copied very badly. The movie itself is uncut, there’s a trailer in German, and tells you which scences were cut for the R-Rated version.None of this adds up to the fact that this edition is next to impossible to watch. Beware.
