Any more word on Richard Stanley's Hardware? Laser's Edge had it available for pre-order for a couple of years but it was never released.

Also, has there been any talk about releasing Philip Ridley's Reflecting Skin? I have it on LD but would love to see it on a nice DVD. I also have Hardware on LD.

The Reflecting Skin is available as a Japanese NTSC import.

I'd keep an eye on this site for news on Hardware...
Between Death and the Devil - The Unofficial Richard Stanley website
There were rumblings late last year of a possible release from Subversive cinema, but nothing has come of it so far.

Richard wants to do a directors cut. It's worth checking out the blogs on his myspace page to see what he's been up to lately.

I know this is after the fact (I only found out about it last minute) but Hardware was shown on the UK channel 'Zone Horror' last night (channel 321 on Sky)
It was the MGM print that I believe was due to be released on DVD by MGM a few years back but was cancelled due to the fact that no one has a clue who owns the rights.

The version shown last night was pretty good quality, vastly better picture quality than the German Red edition.

There is one annoying thing about the Japanese Reflecting Skin. As I recall it has forced English subs, meaning they can't be turned off. I don't recall if it is a region 0 disc.

The Hybrid System

The Music Part: Emotiva XSP-1, Thiel CS 3.6, Emotiva XPA-2, Marantz SA8004, Emotiva ERC-3, SVS PB-12 Plus 2

The Surround Part: Sherbourn PT-7030, Thiel SCS3, Emotiva XPA-5, Polk & Emotiva Surrounds.
