It was the movie that stunned audiences, shocked the MPAA and marked the debut of one of the most uncompromising filmmakers in modern horror. Golden Globe winner Dylan McDermott (The Practice) stars as a post-apocalyptic scavenger who brings home a battered cyborg skull for his metal-sculptor girlfriend. But this steel scrap contains the brain of the M.A.R.K. 13, the military's most ferocious bio-mechanical combat droid. It is cunning, cruel and can reassemble itself. Tonight, it is reborn....and no flesh shall be spared. Stacey Travis (Ghost World) co-stars - along with appearances by Iggy Pop, Lemmy of Motörhead and music by Ministry and Public Image Ltd.

Apart from some cameos (including Lemmy - and the associated Motorhead songs) this could be the same as any other cyborg gone crazy movie from the 90's.

And if you are a Motorhead fan, it's still not worth it - 2 songs in 90 minutes of yawn.

On the bright side, it does remind me that the lack of imagination we are seeing in the last 10 years of movies is actually nothing new - it existing 25 years ago as well.

And that I should listen to more Motorhead (I'm not a fan, but they are pretty great).

Nothing to see here folks, move along.
