In Jesse Thomas Cook’s Monster Brawl, we see the Canadian filmmaker blend both his love for the horror genre and classic ‘80s professional wrestling in the flick that features eight classic movie monsters fighting in the ultimate death match set in a haunted graveyard.
It seemed a natural fit scheduling a DVD release the same week as Wrestlemania for a movie designed like a pro wrestling PPV about monsters stepping into the ring to fight each other with a cast that includes several well-known names from the world of pro wrestling. Unfortunately, that March release date just marched all the way back to the summer.
Somewhere in the middle of all of the holiday madness of 2011, The Foywonder reported that Monster Brawl (review here) would be hitting DVD in March of this year. As a quick follow-up to that tasty nugget of news, the official artwork has come our way! Dig it!
It seems only appropriate that with next year’s Wrestlemania slated for April Fool’s Day, a motion picture like Monster Brawl, starring several personalities from the world of professional wrestling that is patterned after a wrestling pay-per-view but with monsters stepping into a ring to fight it out, would get released on DVD the same week.
And in this corner coming in at about 600 pixels wide, a new bit of eye candy that sets up a true fight for the ages ... the international sales one-sheet for Anchor Bay Entertainment's Monster Brawl!
Here at Dread Central we're always in search of a good time. If the official trailer for the new rock 'em sock 'em monster mash Monster Brawl is any indication of what's to come, that's exactly what we're gonna get!
Who doesn't like a good monster mash? The prospect of two behemoths battling it out in very violent ways is irresistible to horror fans and serves as catnip to me personally. So we're pretty happy to bring you the first poster and stills from the upcoming two-fisted creature feature Monster Brawl!
Both the title and the concept sound like the basis for an old NES video game, but Monster Brawl is actually a horror-comedy now in production about ultimate monster fighting starring an eclectic cast of actors and talent from the world of pro wrestling and MMA.
Although lately it's seemed like most of their horror offerings are of the theatrical or On Demand variety, IFC hasn't forgotten that it's also a television network with a lot of genre viewers, as evidenced by their airing of the eight-part "Gothic comic murder mystery" "Kids in the Hall: Death Comes to Town" this summer.
The psychos from across the border (in the land of hockey and beer) who brought you Manservant Hecubus, The Chicken Lady and the constant, and an Imminent Threat of a Room Full of Evil Monkeys make their triumphant return via website Funny or Die with "Death Comes to Town", an 8-part limited series coming ... soon ... but not now.
I’m a huge fan of “Kids in the Hall” so any time I can get a chance to report on a new movie any of those five weirdoes are in on my site, I’m all over it. THR reports that Dave Foley, the Kid who’s been in more genre fare than the others, has joined the eclectic cast of the Canadian horror/comedy Suck.
Though we showed you guys a new and improved poster for Netherbeast Incorporated not too long ago, the film’s DVD distributors, Well Go USA, decided to go with the older art for the DVD cover. I guess we can’t really complain, though, cause at least this much-loved horror/comedy is finally making its way home soon.
Here’s the latest scoop from the desk of Brian Ronalds at the offices of Netherbeast Incorporated.
