Location: Drexel North, circa 1993
Per the Drexel's official release:

Just announced are 2 new Ohio Premiere's to the Marathon's feature film line-up.
Writer-director Eric Hayden’s inventive and gripping science fiction adventure THE LAST PUSH is a story of survival, discovery, and courage in the face of overwhelming odds. When a space probe discovers signs of life on Jupiter ’s moon Europa, Earth sends a two-man spacecraft on a 13-year mission to obtain photographic evidence. Astronaut Michael Forrest (Khary Payton) finds his assignment altered when an accident kills his co-pilot and damages the spacecraft; not only must Forrest spend three years alone in a cramped module, but he also must repair the ship in time to adjust his trajectory in order to return home. With limited communication to mission control, manned by Brian Baumgartner (“The Office”), the isolated astronaut’s mental and physical endurance are pushed to their limits. Also starring cult icon Lance Henriksen (“Aliens,” “Millennium,” “The Terminator”). THE LAST PUSHfeatures incredible special effects in the vein of Moonand Silent Running. Winner of the Best Film at the 2012 Independent Film Festival, Best Space Film at the Boston Science Fiction Festival and an Official Selection of the London Sci Fi Film Festival.
Also premiering at this year's Sci-Fi Marathon is MANBORG. When Nazi vampires, straight from the bowels of hell, led by the nefarious Count Draculon, take over the planet our intrepid heroes, which include the titular Manborg, a kick-ass babe and a kung fu warrior, battle these forces of evil to save humanity from eternal despair.
Imagine Robocop and Universal Soldier mashed up in a pastiche of every 80s’ straight-to-video genre movie and you get some idea of what to expect from Manborg: clichéd characters and dialogue, stop-motion monsters, dodgy green screen and special effects that look like they are straight out of the Troma school of filmmaking. Winner of Best Film at the 2012 Boston Underground Film Festival and Official Selection of the Toronto After Dark Film Festival, ActionFest
Film Festival and the London SciFi Film Festival.
With its tongue firmly in its cheek, Manborg offers something from every conceivable trope, mixed up to give you exactly what you need for a great, fun night out with a ‘bad’ movie.
The Buzz
“It’s probably safe to say that the cult of MANBORG will grow pretty quickly and steadily; there are just too many moments that speak directly to sci-fi geeks.”
- Quiet Earth
“Goofy, violent, funny, cheap and charming… the movie is a crazed fantasy!”
- IFC: The Independent Film Channel
“What sets MANBORG apart and really makes it worth watching is the craftsmanship that went into the production, as well as the enthusiasm of the cast and crew for their material….What MANBORG lacks in budget, it makes up for in heart and soul.”
- Twitch Film
