Trailer for low-budget sci-fi pic Manborg is chock full of WTF awesomeness

04.15.2013by:

Get ready for some B-movie goodness! Director Steven Kostanski, a make-up effects artist who has worked on movies like RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION, SILENT HILL: REVELATION 3D, NURSE 3-D, PACIFIC RIM, and more, has concocted a sci-fi/comedy/WTF flick called MANBORG that looks like a throwback to the low-budget goofball pics of the '80's that were so laughably bad that they ended up being great. The trailer looks like a mash-up of old school bottom shelf Troma sci-fi, complete with over-the-top, cheesy gore and stop-motion madness. The trailer had me at, "My name is Manborg."

Check it out:

Here's the synopsis:

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

This looks insanely fun and I look forward to catching it. I can appreciate this type of low-budget pic for the nostalgia, comedy, and pure batshit craziness that is likely rampant throughout.

MANBORG hits DVD on April 30, 2013. Preorder here!

Extra Tidbit: My most recent violent, cheesy, B-movie was Hobo with a Shotgun. Check it out on Netflix streaming if you're into that sort of thing. It's a blast (pun intended)!

Wow. Between this and Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon there seems to be some sort of 80's B sci-fi/action revival going around.

WOW! As low budget as it is, the movie looks mightily awesome! This is cult classic in the making. I'm wondering if the Asian guy's voice is actually his own voice or someone dubbed his voice. Either case, I'm very very much stoked to see the movie!

Poster was awesome but the trailer sucked. I think Troma movies have higher budgets.
