Hardware is a 1990 science fiction film starring Dylan McDermott as a scavenger in a post-apocalyptic world who purchases a discarded cyborg head as a Christmas present for his girlfriend, who is a metal sculptor. The cyborg turns out to be the prototype of self-assembling killing machine, the M.A.R.K. 13, and arms itself with various metal working tools from her workshop including drills and cutting disks.

The film also goes under the title of M.A.R.K. 13 (which is a reference to the biblical passage 'no flesh shall be spared').
