Part man, part cyborg. All manborg! (And a little bit of camp. Okay, a LOT of camp.)
The brainchild of 70s and 80s film fanatic Steve Kostanski, Manborg is the result of three years of committed work by a team of retro b-film enthusiasts on an eye-wateringly small budget of $1000.
Manborg is set in the future where Nazi demons led by the nefarious Count Draculon and his minions rise from the bowels of Hell and take over the planet. A rag tag group of rebels fight back but their rebellion is effectively crushed, leaving nothing but scorched earth on which the Hellions plan to build their new world. After a personal confrontation with the Count, a soldier is blasted into oblivion only to awake in the dark future to find most of his body replaced with cybernetic enhancements. A mysterious inventor has turned his bloodied remains into Manborg, cyborg of destruction.
Starring Matthew Kennedy, Adam Brooks and Meredith Sweeney.
After playing the festival circuits for the last few years, “Manborg” finally arrives on DVD January 7th 2013.
