The forces of Hell have risen to the surface of the Earth to wreak unspeakable havoc on humanity. And it will take a real superhuman to save the world. Or at least Manborg, a spectacular creature of the future and the hero of Manborg, the cult favorite sci-fi/fantasy homage coming to select theaters and DVD on April 30, 2013, from Dark Sky Films. Check out the must-see trailer for this instant sci-fi classic!

<strong><em>Manborg</em></strong> Poster

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) 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), a knife-wielding vixen (Meredith Sweeney) and a kung fu master before finally squaring off against Count Draculon (Adam Brooks) in a desperate and bloody bid to take back the Earth.

This campy, comedic action flick is also an affectionate and clever tribute to fan favorite '80s films and videogames like The Terminator, Robocop and Mortal Kombat.

Manborg will be released on DVD April 30th, 2013 and stars Matthew Kennedy, Adam Brooks, Conor Sweeney, Ludwig Lee, Jeremy Gillespie, Andrea Karr and Mike Kostanski. The film is directed by Steven Kostanski.
