Director Steven Kostanski | 2011 | 72 minutes | Science Fiction, Comedy | English
In this outrageous Sci-Fi actioner, 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 first war against Hell, Manborg 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, a knife wielding vixen, and a kung-fu master before finally squaring off against Count Draculon in a desperate and bloody bid to take back the Earth.
“What Manborg lacks in budget, it makes up for in heart and soul.”
– Screen Anarchy
“An acid-washed cornucopia of action and laughs. Short, silly, and superbly crafted with next to no money, Manborg is a delight.”
“The colour scheme is garish and nausea-inducing but somehow Manborg is endearingly lo-fi DIY entertainment and Kostanski should be applauded for what he’s achieved on this minimal budget.”
