Sheborg (2016) - Blu-ray

Part Woman. Part Machine. Total Destruction.

When was the last time we had a female kickass alien cyborg film?  It’s been a hot minute since, hmm, 1993.  Which is why SheBorg (originally released as SheBorg Massacre, a better title if you ask me) immediately grabbed my attention.  It was that, the art, and the puppies.  Yes, puppies.  You see, this take-no-prisoners "neo-pulp" (as described by its director) film, hailing from Australia, is all about giving its audience those warm poppy dog-like feels . . . and then feeding on that young canine flesh.

"From puppy-crunching to the buckets of blood and goop that follows wherever these cyborgs go, SheBorg operates on many levels"


Written and directed by Daniel Armstrong (MurderDrome), SheBorg is an insane ride down the pop culture-littered B-movie highway as it, in its earliest moments, embraces all things associated with the rebel culture of the 1950s before giving it a good shake-up with a lot of sci-fi swagger.  This movie, by design, is not your typical flick and, as it operates (and is edited) with a breakneck pace, consistently challenges your expectations.  In a good way.

In its opening minutes, we see two anarchists, Dylan (Whitney Duff) and Eddie (Daisy Masterman), tagging various spots in Melton, Victoria.  And then, hilariously enough, two out-of-shape and out-of-breath coppers try to get these two artists.  While they are being processed, the film cuts to a spaceship in orbit of a distant planet.  How’s that for a leap?!

You see, on board this spaceship is SheBorg (Emma-Louise Wilson), a prisoner, and she’s about to break loose in a very gross manner.  Here’s a hint: it involves green, chunky slime.  AND SHE’S HEADED TO EARTH . . . or at least a puppy mill in Australia.  Once there, she will begin to turn all the humans she comes into contact with into puppy-feeding cyborgs and it will be up to Dylan and Eddie to rid the earth of this scum. 

But they won’t be doing this world saving on their own.  Teaming up with the local law enforcement and a nerd named Velma (Louise Monnington), this team of not-so-bright do-gooders are soon in over their heads thanks to all the human lives being harvested by the canine-craving cyborg.Sheborg (2016) - Blu-ray

The film is one hell of a vulgar and mutated blast.  It is bound for cult status, we just need to spread the word about this cinematic treat.  Highly quotable and coked-out on its own fumes, the violent thrashing that this film showcases is definitely NOT parody but, man, it will have you hunched over, howling with laughter.  And, trust me, there is a lot to love about this female-led assault on decency and good taste and it arrives with a narrative that actually carries itself securely.

From puppy-crunching to the buckets of blood and goop that follows wherever these cyborgs go, SheBorg operates on many levels.  Buy this blu-ray from Wild Eye Releasing and get your friends together!  No one is going to leave your crib disappointed by all the bad-ass babes kicking ass in this genre-defying and utterly WILD flick. 

After all, Chaos provides.

The 1080p/AVC- encoded transfer is an impressive digitally handled picture.  Fine detailed is practically overwhelming with the grains in the forest and fibers in the clothing being abundant.  Flesh tones are warm and visually full of detail.  The contrast is edged-up a bit (which is a good thing) and there are definite breaks in the colors and impressive shadows that are completely at play throughout the feature.  The vivid sense of the picture continues deep into the soundtrack which is presented in a wonderfully vibrant lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track and fully showcases the sound design.
