‘The chaos is near’
SheBorg is a 2015 Australian science fiction film written, co-produced, edited and directed by Daniel Armstrong (Murderdrome). Also known as SheBorg Massacre
Director Daniel Armstrong has described his film thus: “Neo-pulp lovingly embraces the most extreme, cliche, and supercilious elements of pop culture and pulp literature and puts them in a human context.
Sheborg Massacre itself is a 50s teen rebel flick set in a B-grade sci-fi world from the early ’80s, with horror-style violence. It’s not a spoof, it’s not horror, it’s not action, it’s not sci-fi, it’s not drama. It’s all of these things. It’s neo-pulp.”
Self-styled tough-girl and punk activist Dylan loves fighting for a cause… literally any cause will do (much to the chagrin of her friend Eddie).
When an alien fugitive crash lands on a local puppy farm and begins turning people into machines that feed on puppy flesh, Dylan has to decide if she believes in any cause enough to risk her life, take on the Sheborg menace, and save the world…
“As low budget as it may be, Armstrong nails the crude, crass, and crazy tone he’s obviously shooting for. While his budget is slim and his script slimmer, he works hard to capitalize on what most audiences are coming for, namely a super-cheap thrill ride that is not afraid to revel in various examples of human, cyborg, and alien blood and guts.” Blu-ray.com
“You may find the pacing uneven, especially in the second half, and certain elements just don’t work, such as the shoehorning in of a punk band whom, I can only assume, are present because they are mates with the director. It’s certainly not because they have any acting skills. However, it remains the kind of film which I’m prepared to cut significant slack…” 3.5 out of 5, Girls with Guns
“The soundtrack is a big part of this film’s charm and features music by The Mercy Kills and KidCrusher among others. Sheborg is a 50s B-movie plot trapped in an 80s homage film but filmed in the 2000s. If Sheborg sounds bonkers that’s because it is, but it’s a fun ride throughout which will appeal to any genre fan.” Horror Screams Video Vault
“SheBorg encapsulates the essence of a schlocky B-horror, charmed with two-bit practical and visual effects.” It’s Bloggin Evil!
