The Event Program
- Movie presentation of Manborg
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.
Join Alamo Drafthouse Cinema programmer Robert Saucedo for MANBORG. Steven Kostanks’ low-budget sci-fi comedy is satire for the YouTube generation. A 60-minute absurd spoof of ROBOCOP (among other things), Kostanks’ film stars Matthew Kennedy as a fallen soldier brought back to life as a cyborg to fight the demon hordes that have overrun the Earth in a nightmarish dystopian future full of CGI, Street Fighter rejects and stop-motion demons. The film may be short in running length but the humor is packed into the film like an overweight woman in cheetah print stretchy pants. If TETSUO: THE IRON MAN made sweet love to a Sega Genesis console, Manborg would be the bouncing baby born.
