Richard Stanley's cult classic Hardware finally makes it's way to UK DVD on the 22 Jun 2009. It's long over due this one and with sub par euro editions and obscenely expensive OOP region 1 versions being the only option film collectors across the pond will want to pick this up as well (assuming you have region free equipment).
Dylan McDermott, Stacey Travis, Carl McCoy, Lemmy, William Hootkins & Iggy Pop star.
"In the post-apocalyptic, post-nuclear world of Hardware, our worst environmental fears have come true. Temperatures hover at a balmy 110 degrees in the shade and the omnipresent radiation has wreaked havoc with the societal gene pool. For your entertainment there is a 24-hour television broadcasting porno films and heavy-metal music videos. Radio offers the rantings and ravings of Angry Bob (Iggy Pop), a lunatic disc jockey who broadcasts bad news all day. Good news has become a thing of the past. If you are looking to escape reality, try smoking the mind-altering “Major Good Vibes” – the painkiller of choice. But, if you’re looking for comfort or safety, forget it: just lock your doors, turn on your super-sophisticated security system and pray that nobody knocks. For in this world, everything can harm you – whether it is the air you breathe, the food you eat, or a seemingly harmless bit of hardware… Upon its release in the US, Hardware became the most successful British independent movie ever released over there."
