Donald Lawrence Flaherty directs this MMA-inspired horror indie, Brutal, which isn’t really my cup of tea. They released a very violent trailer, but there’s quite a bit of CGI, and it just looks insanely violent instead of fun and violent. Maybe you’ll dig it?
“Brutal centers on Trevor (Morgan Benoit) abducted from his backyard at the age of fifteen by an unseen alien presence. Forced into nearly two decades of no-holds-barred fights against other abductees inside an unearthly mixed martial arts arena, Trevor has evolved 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 the two men exchange ever-increasing beatings over the course of weeks and months, the brutality of their existence and the true nature of their humanity is slowly revealed.”
The pic features fight sequences created by two of Hollywood’s top stunt performers, Colin Follenweider and Chris Torres.
