New Pics From ‘Manborg’ Highlight The Epic-Ness

We’ve got some new stills for Manborg, the cult favorite sci-fi/fantasy homage coming to select theaters and DVD on April 30, from Dark Sky Films and they underscore just how much of a bizarre pastiche this film is. I’m hoping I love it!

The armies of hell have taken over the Earth, and all that stands in the way of the villainous Count Draculon and humanity’s total extinction is a motley crew of misfits led by the mighty Manborg: a warrior who’s half-man, half-machine, but all hero.

Once a young soldier killed during the first war against hell, Manborg (Matthew Kennedy, Lazer Ghosts 2) reawakens in the future, rebuilt as a walking weapon and mankind’s last hope. Struggling to learn the secret of his origins, Manborg unwittingly befriends a post-apocalyptic Australian punker (Conor Sweeney, Heart of Karl), a knife-wielding vixen (Meredith Sweeney, Father’s Day) and a kung fu master before finally squaring off against Count Draculon (Adam Brooks, Father’s Day) in a desperate and bloody bid to take back the Earth.

This campy, comedic action flick, which Variety called “enjoyably ridiculous,” is also an affectionate and clever tribute to fan favorite ’80s films and videogames like The Terminator, RoboCop and “Mortal Kombat.”

    Could be awful, could be awesome, I’m taking my chances and checking it out for the claymation monster alone.
