‘Cyborg: Deadly Machine’ – A Retrofuturistic Film by Masebrothers

This is the era of hyper-experimental sci-fi movies. From Cyberpunk series like Altered Carbon to animated masterpieces like Love, Death and Robots, an interactive movie like Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, and sci-fi short like Don’t Watch This, filmmakers across the world are coming up with baffling projects to blow everyone’s mind. The science Fiction genre is undoubtedly the flavor of the season. Retro-futurism movies – the perfect blend of old fashioned retro styles and futuristic technology is generating lots of interest among viewers as most of us grew up watching sci-fi movies like Terminator, Predator or Alien. In an undying quest to revive the fond memories of the ‘80s and ‘90s, Masebrothers is coming up with a short film called Cyborg: Deadly Machine.

Cyborg: Deadly Machine is a short film tribute to science fiction movies of the ‘80s and ‘90s, which used the production techniques from the past to re-create the magic again. Especially, the use of mock-up or animatronics that offer a warm rendering is used in the production not predominant in the current digital techniques. The film is under production and by the trailer, it looks extremely promising for any sci-fi fan however the Masebrothers are currently looking for funding to realize their dreams.


The story of Cyborg: Deadly Machine takes place in an apocalyptic world, where a resistant group led by a woman (Stacy) tries to survive from the Cyborg Warrior created by a powerful AI Corporation, to exterminate humans. Only one man can stop them: Alex RAYNE, a lonesome chief who cooks with his guns.

With this new project, they want to recreate the feeling of those glory 80s/90s era, with animatronic sequence, miniature set, and stylish action scenes.

The team is highly influenced by ‘The Terminator’ (1984), ‘Cyborg’ (1989), ‘Nemesis’ (1992), ‘Hardware’ (1990), and ‘Aliens’ (1986).

They are currently looking for backers for this interesting project. For the very first time, they are trying crowdfunding experience on Kickstarter
