"Manborg" runs of the philosophy that if you create something and try your best to make it as bad as possible, you will end up with something really great. And kudos to the cast and crew of this film, because they succeeded.

I can't really tell you what this movie is about. Does it have a plot? Yup. Is it a clear plot? Yup. Does it matter? Not in the least bit.

The reason "Manborg" worked for me was because it reminded me of a couple of films that me, my sister and my best friend used to make each Halloween. They were horrorcomedy anthologies much like the Simpson's Treehouse of Horror episodes. We made them badly and we made them badly deliberately. This appears to be what the producers of "Manborg" went about doing.

There are two kinds of bad movies. The first is the kind that nobody likes. It is the result of an attempt to make a good movie that fails miserably. The second is the movie that was meant to be bad. The people who make these movies love bad movies and their appreciation of it keeps us going. It is quite clear that the producers of "Manborg" appreciate cheesy and bad cinema. This is one of those rare finds which I know I will be watching over and over. Don't watch it if you are looking for...well....hmmm... well pretty much anything actually. But if you want to see a movie and spend the entire time absolutely baffled at how anyone could make such a horrid piece of cinema, watch "Manborg" and have an absolutely fun time.
