PhilaMOCA’s Mausoleum Horror Con Is Showing A Movie Called Manborg, And That Is All You Need To Know
Next Saturday, PhilaMOCA will be presenting the Mausoleum Horror Convention, “a one-day celebration of the wild and weird,” presented by Cinedelphia. There will be vendors, puppets and more, but what you really need to know about are the two film screenings.
An emotionally fragile woman’s lonely reality is shattered when her tattoo seemingly comes to life. Offering its undying attention and otherworldly sensual pleasures, the tattoo quickly seduces, drawing her into a dangerous and all consuming bond that requires more than she may be able to give.”
You may want to read that again, especially that second part about the sensual pleasures.
While that sounds weird and wacky and awesome in its own way, our attention was immediately grabbed by the other film of the double feature, the epic, 60-minute, sure-to-be-classic Manborg, in which our hero, Manborg, who was “killed while battling the forces of hell … is brought back from the dead in order to fight an army of Nazi vampires and demons led by the nefarious Count Draculon.” So, what exactly is a manborg? It’s a half-man, half-cyborg. Now you may be asking yourself, “If Manborg is half-man and half-cyborg, and a cyborg is a half-man, half-machine, is a manborg just a 3/4 man, 1/4 machine?” To which we respond, “SHUT UP NERD.”
