I last posted about Monster Brawl a year ago, when we didn’t know much more than the basic premise and some casting information. Now, with an official site, official trailer (see below) and a delightfully authentic poster (see further below), it looks like we’re getting closer to seeing these monsters kick each other’s asses. Here’s a synopsis from the film’s Facebook page:
Set in the tradition of a Pay-Per-View main event, comes a grotesque and hilarious fight to the death featuring a cast of eight classic combatants in all. Along with their colorful managers, these Monsters compete in visceral bloody combat in the ring to determine the most powerful monster of all time. Monster Brawl stars comedian Dave Foley (Kids in the Hall, Bugs Life, Despicable Me), wrestling icons Jimmy Hart – The Mouth of the South, Kevin Nash, revered MMA referee Herb Dean, Robert Maillet (300, Sherlock Holmes, The Immortals), Art Hindle (Porky’s, Black Christmas) and the voice of horror legend and Call of Duty narrator Lance Henriksen (Aliens, Terminator). Monster Brawl is sure to be a cult classic in the making!
There’s no release date yet, but the film is making the rounds at these festivals:
International Premiere – Lund International Fantastic Film Festival
European Premiere – Slash Film Festival
Calgary Premiere/Black Carpet Gala – Calgary International
Toronto Premiere – TORONTO AFTER DARK FILM FESTIVAL – Horror, Sci-Fi, Action & Cult Movies
French Premiere – Fantastique Semaine Du Cinema
Watch this trailer and tell me this doesn’t look like a throwback to everything that was awesome about being a rowdy ten-year-old boy in 1991.
You want more? That’s good, because I have more. Here’s the poster, which prominently features the Undead Conference vs. Creature Conference matchup between Frankenstein and Werewolf. Dang, I got a little giddy just typing the last half of that sentence.
