G4 TV’s Attack Of The Show spotlighted the Hardware DVD/Blu Ray on their famed horror segment, “Body Count” hosted by Wrong Turn 2 director Joe Lynch. “Director Stanley welds elements of The Terminator, Mad Max, and even Rear Window“, Lynch concludes, “into a very effective, explicit nightmare you won’t soon forget!”
“The slasher film takes another evolutionary step”, opens Dave Kehr’s Halloween roundup featuring Hardware for his The New York Times DVD/Blu Ray column.
For Salon, the Hardware DVD and Blu Ray release stands counterpart to some of contemporary horror’s finest alternative offerings for the Halloween season. Andrew O’hehir hails Hardware as,”nasty, gory and intense…this is a dirty, atmospheric and nearly lost fragment of movie history.”
Ard Vijn of Twitch Film recently conducted a career interview with Richard Stanley. Stanley discusses Hardware‘s misled journey through ownership and unavailability on home video as well as his latest film projects, Vacation and The Bones Of The Earth.
