Indie ‘Brutal’ Mixes Aliens With ‘Fight Club’ (Trailer)

House of Film’s Black House Films has announced Donald Lawrence Flaherty’s Brutal for the European Film Market.

The horror thriller mixes all sorts of genres from action to adventure, fight, paranormal and even marital arts.

Described as Fight Club meets the “Twilight Zone,” the film stars Morgan Benoit (Forbidden Kingdom, 47 Ronin), and features fight sequences created by two of Hollywood’s top stunt performers, Colin Follenweider (Avatar, X-Men) and Chris Torres (Letters from Iwo Jima).

“Brutal centers on Trevor (Morgan Benoit), who is abducted at the age of fifteen by an unseen alien presence. Forced into nearly two decades of no-holds-barred fights against other abductees, Trevor evolves from an innocent boy into a brutal fighting machine.

Derek, (Jeff Hatch) an ambulance chasing lawyer, is the latest lab-rat abductee forced to fight Trevor. As they exchange increasingly violent beatings over the course of weeks and months, the brutality of their existence ironically begins to reveal the true nature of their humanity.

With elements of the paranormal juxtaposed with the most violent fight scenes you will ever see on screen, Brutal explores the animal aspect of human nature and our propensity to commit unthinkable acts against each other. Yet, it is through this prism of brutality that our capacity to love proves victorious even in the worst of circumstances.“

    Shittiest trailer ever. It sounds interesting how they describe it though

    Oh so its UFC. whoopie doo. I give up on horror movies now. I haven’t seen a good horror movie in a long time. You’re next was the last one I saw in theaters and the last one I saw at home was recent, it was called Shadow People. That was freaky and creepy.

    But idk every movie I wanted to see lately sucks. Contracted was shitty well it wasn’t that bad just the end was lousy it could of easily gone on for another 30mins but they just decided to end it. Then +1 looked really awesome and just turned out to be a poorly done project x movie with the butterfly effect. And then I was bored to death with toad road which was the stupiest piece of shit movie I’ve seen in a while. Then All the boys love mandy lane, and the loved ones could of been cool if they were released when they were suppose to but for now they sucked.

    What happen to all the good horror movies ???

      Sadly enough I kinda agree. Lately it’s rare I see a horror movie that feels like an instant (cult) classic.

    the premise sounds cool but that trailer was such garbage. I think I’ll pass on this one.

    looks kinda low quality and Fight club wasn’t really about the fighting so I don’t know how they got that connection. in any case, Startrek Voyager did something like this with Dwayne Johnson.
