Official Poster for the Insanely Violent ‘Brawl in Cell Block 99’

From the writer/director of Bone Tomahawk, S. Craig Zahler, comes the hotly anticipated Brawl in Cell Block 99, which has been hyped as being so violent that it gives the insanely grotesque The Story of Ricky a run for its money. No seriously.

We’ve got the official poster for you today, which you’ll find below.

In the film, starring Vince Vaughn

“A former boxer named Bradley loses his job as an auto mechanic, and his troubled marriage is about to expire. At this crossroads in his life, he feels that he has no better option than to work for an old buddy as a drug courier. This vocation improves his situation until the terrible day that he finds himself in a gunfight between a group of police officers and his own ruthless allies. When the smoke clears, Bradley is badly hurt and thrown in prison, where his enemies force him to commit acts of violence that turn the place into a savage battleground.”

The cast also includes Jennifer Carpenter, Udo Kier, Don Johnson and Marc Blucas.

RLJE Films will release Brawl In Cell Block 99 in theaters on Oct. 6, 2017. An On Demand and Digital HD release will follow on October 13, 2017.

    I think this will be one of my TIFF picks next week when I choose my films for this year.

    So violent huh? I still haven’t seen ‘Bone Tomahawk’ any praise from a fellow fan?

      Bone Tomahawk is amazing. I waited years for it and was not disappointed. My advice, don’t rent, just buy.

      (Full disclosure of bias; I’m a fan of westerns, horror and all things Kurt Russell)

        Ok good to know. One of my favorite shows is ‘The Rifleman’ with Chuck Connors from the early 60’s. Now I know that isn’t even close to what we’re talking about, but I’m a very diverse fan so it shouldn’t be a problem.

      Aside from the brutally violent horror elements, the movie is a well acted western. There is some lighthearted humor throw in as well. If you don’t care for westerns at all, you may be disappointed because the first half seems like a straight forward western. The final act becomes pretty horrifying, but everything successfully supports the story without it feeling like unnecessary shock value.

      I wouldn’t call Bone Tomahawk a horror film, necessarily, but the final 20 minutes or so are pretty unflinchingly graphic, in a way that is completely unexpected but also very honest and raw.

      I feel like it affects people in the way something like Martyrs did. It’s handled very naturally doesn’t come off as a slasher film, or a similar trope-y way. The film leading up to the end, doesn’t prepare you for the finale.

      That being said, I totally recommend it. It has great performances and even without the hyped finale, is a fine character based western in it’s own right.

        Ok cool

    Bone Tomahawk was a great western…I’ve always been a huge fan of the genre. And Kurt Russell is excellent…as are others. But there is one particular scene that stands above any I have witnessed in terms of indelibly marking your soul. It will haunt your dreams due to the cavalier and “matter-of-fact”manner in which one of the most horrific acts of physical disfigurement and torture is depicted in an unflinching manner. It’s tougher to shake than most movie scenes you’ll ever experience. But a great story and movie.
