The lesson of Hardware is this: If you’re a junk artist, don’t use an ex-military project robot head in your art project. If you do, it will come to life, use the junk to rebuilt itself, and go on a killing spree in your apartment complex. You may wish to accept this as fact rather than doubt the logic. I’ve always had mixed feelings about Hardware. The effects are great, but the film itself is an uneasy mix of science fiction, horror and sleaze. It does have an awesome killing machine of a robot, though.
