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!
