Dylan McDermott stars as Mo, a survivor of a post-apocalyptic future world who makes a living selling salvaged machinery. When some robot parts he’s collected rebuild themselves, the reborn creature sets out on a murder spree. With Stacey Travis, John Lynch, Iggy Pop, Lemmy.

HARDWARE (Richard Stanley, 1990 / 93 mins / 18A) Mark 13 is a government-built killing machine programmed with artificial intelligence, able to repair and recharge itself from any energy source. Through a series of coincidences, the cyborg’s head ends up in the home of a sculptress as a bizarre Christmas present from her boyfriend. Once inside its new home, the cyborg promptly reconstructs the rest of its body using a variety of household utensils and proceeds to go on a murderous rampage.
