Cyborg Getting Deluxe Blu-ray Release

Jean-Claude Van Damme's '80s sci-fi masterpiece, Cyborg, is getting a loaded Blu-ray release from Shout! Factory. We're excited.

Cyborg Movie Starring Van Damme

Holy moley, we’re finally getting Masters of the Universe 2 in a fully loaded deluxe Blu-ray edition with a 4K scan! Wait…what’s that, you say? Oh, that’s right, I meant Cyborg, not Masters of the Universe 2, of course.

Anyway, the good folks at Shout! Factory are about to unleash a loaded, awesome Blu-ray edition of Cyborg, the 1989 Jean-Claude Van Damme post-apocalyptic cyberpunk throwdown that among other things features JCVD crucified in the desert sun for a stretch. It’s really something. 

And there are so many cool connections to other weird, ’80s ephemera, too. Cyborg is directed by Albert Pyun, he of the MST3K-famous Alien From LA and the beloved only by me 1990 Captain America movie. Pyun was also supposed to direct a Spider-Man movie, as well as Masters of the Universe 2. Neither happened, so a bunch of that work was folded into Cyborg. No, seriously, we wrote an entire article about it.

Check out how loaded these special features are!
