    I'm thrilled to see this cult classic finally land on DVD, but I haven't seen anything about it in the usual review circles. Anybody?

    I had read in another thread (or forum) that it had been cancelled.

    I have seen mention on a few Web sites that the 1990 sci-fi film Hardware was (or will be) released on DVD. However, I can't find any definitive word on whether or not this is actually available or when it will be available. Do any of you know anything about this DVD release?

    My search of this forum didn't turn up that thread for some reason. After reading through the posts at both of those links, I'll have to say I'm quite disappointed. I really like that movie and would love to be able to replace my crappy VHS copy. Oh well... maybe someday.

    Thanks for the info.

    Any new news about this eventually being released? I was just thinking about this movie and wondered if it was out on DVD and found this thread through a search, but it's a bit old.

    well, either the DVDs are in storage somewhere or they just never made them and waited until now to announce it.

    I just found this auction on ebay for a DVD of the 1990 film, Hardware.

    Link to eBay auction removed by administrator

    I just wondered what makes it worth $186 as it only gets a vote of 5.1 on imdb, although it does mention that it was edited for an R rating so I assume this DVD is uncut.

    Has anyone seen this and if so, is it worth it for a horror fan to try & track down this DVD online?

    The film has developed something of a cult following. I saw it years ago on VHS and didn't think all that much of it, though the director did succeed in getting a lot of mileage out of a low budget, a la "The Terminator".

    It was supposed to come out on DVD in R1 a year or so ago, but the release was pulled at the last minute. Don't know about R2, but I wouldn't be at all surprised if that's a bootleg.

    I have a (I believe) German R2 edition of this movie under its international title, M.A.R.K.-13. It's P&S and the transfer is not great, but I believe it's a legit copy.

    I purchased the disc from Diabolik DVD for well under that price.

    It sure as hell isn't worth $186, although it's watchable as far as late 80's sci-fi fodder goes.

    I vaugely remember this movie and the thing I remembered that was cool about it was the soundtrack. I actually owned it on cassette, and it had some Ministry songs on it.

    I saw this years ago on VHS, thought it was a lousy movie. I probably wouldn't pay more than 2-3 bucks if anything for it.

    I think it only had one Ministry song: Stigmata. It also had the previously referred to PiL song The Order of Death. Most of the soundtrack from what I remember was score. I've lost the tape since. This was the movie that got me into Ministry. When I first saw the movie in the theater, I thought GWAR was Ministry since they show GWAR footage with Ministry music.
