Hamilton horror and cult fans, get ready for MANBORG, the new indie homage to the cheesy sci-fi / action films of the VHS generation from Astron-6 (Father's Day).
Our good friend Dave Pace of Fangoria is hosting as screening of Manborg and the new Astron-6 short "Bio-Cop" in Hamilton for one-night only with director Steven Kostanski in attendance. You do not want to miss this unique celebration of cult cinema right here in the Hammer. RSVP on Facebook today!
Half-man, half-cyborg: Manborg. Killed while battling the forces of hell, a supersoldier is brought back from the dead in order to fight an army of Nazi vampires and demons led by the nefarious Count Draculon. Cue kung-fu killing, stop-motion monster battles, hoverbikes, robots, demons and a character named Doctor Scorpius.
From Z-grade director/FX whiz Steven Kostanski (Lazer Ghosts 2: Return to Laser Cove) comes Manborg, an unashamed and utterly unexplainable paean to the world of zero-budget, VHS-only 80s horror sci-fi. Ridiculous, chaotic and filled with pretty much every single schlock culture reference point you'd care to name, Manborg is the cult film to end all cult films.
DATE: Friday, November 16th
LOCATION: The Staircase Theatre (27 Dundurn St. North, Hamilton, ON)
Don't forget to return to the Staircase Theatre on Sunday, November 18th for more indie cinema when Horror in the Hammer's Fright Night Theatre screens Snow Shark. Let's keep support for indie genre and cult cinema alive in Hamilton!
