Get ready for an encounter with some seriously heavy metal; get ready for HARDWARE. A 35mm presentation!
A junker wandering a post-apocalyptic wasteland stumbles upon what seems like a goldmine: a busted up robot buried in the irradiated sand. He collects the pieces of the fierce looking machine and takes the parts back home to research. He gives the head to his girlfriend. Big mistake. This isn’t some ordinary killbot, this is the M.A.R.K. 13, a self-repairing murder machine designed for human genocide. Piecing itself back together with hunks of scrap, the M.A.R.K. 13 sets out to fulfill its primary directive: “No flesh shall be spared.”
