Several years ago I stumbled across a group of young Canadian filmmakers who had created Astron-6, their own production company that may as well have fallen out of a worm hole from 1989, and promptly fell in love. To this day, their fake trailer for Lazer Ghosts 2: Return to Laser Cove remains to be my favorite fake trailer of all time. I quote it on a regular basis and at one point I even owned the domain name Lasernomicon.com in its honor.
Fast forward a few years and the brilliant boys are back at it, only this time they're not just making awesome short films. Twitch Film recently shared the teaser trailer for their first feature-length film titled, quite brilliantly, I might add, Manborg. And it looks as wonderful as I always dreamed an Astron-6 feature would be: like a beautiful, straight-to-VHS masterpiece. Director Steve Kostanski is my hero.
Check out the brief Manborg teaser below, as well as the full-length geekgasm that is Lazer Ghosts 2: Return to Laser Cove. If these don't make your day, I kindly ask that you not bite me, for you are already a zombie.
