Good day good people!
Jonny T here bring you news of the UK release and available download for the very fun looking Monster Brawl, with the tag line of  "It's the fight of the living dead" this definately looks liking it's going to be a blast!
I've stuck all the details below and watch this space for a review coming soon!
Jonny T.

Witness the ultimate “smackdown” event of all time as eight of the world’s most feared and famous monsters enter the ring to go head-to-head in a grotesque and hilarious fight to the death (or, in several cases, the “un-death”).

Celebrity Wrestlemania doesn’t get any scarier – or funnier – than the Monster Brawl, in which four contestants from the Creature Conference and four from the Undead Conference battle it out in the ring to take the title of the most powerful monster of all time. Representing the CC are Massachusetts’ nefarious necromancer Witch Bitch, Louisana’s slimy bog dweller Swamp Gut, Tennessee’s very own Werewolf and, adding some continental glamour to the group, the mythical Cyclops from the Ionian Islands of Greece. The UC’s creepily cosmopolitan line-up consists of Transylvania’s Lady Vampire, Ingolstadt’s Frankenstein, Egypt’s Mummy and, from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the one and only Zombie Man!
The rule book is ripped up, no holds are barred, everything goes and heads definitely roll in this gory and horrifically hilarious satire of those ever-popular Pay-Per-View wrestling extravaganzas we all know and love so well.

Directed by Jesse T. Cook (director of the cannibal shocker Scarce) and starring Dave Foley (A Bug’s Life; Cars; The Kids In The Hall), Lance Henriksen (Aliens), cult genre movie icon Art Hindle (Black Christmas; Porky’s; Invasion Of The Body Snatchers), actor and wrestler Kevin Nash (The Punisher; Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II), legendary WWF and WCW manager Jimmy Hart, former WWF star Robert Maillet (300; Sherlock Holmes; The Immortals) and MMA fighter and referee Herb Dean.

The winner of the Audience Awards at both the Fantasia and Toronto After Dark Film Festivals, this is a dream come true for anybody who has ever watched a horror film and then discussed with their friends who would win in a face-off between their two favourite monsters (and who hasn’t had such a discussion?). Combine that brilliant set-up with a cavalcade of “blink and you’ll miss ‘em” in-jokes for horror and wrestling fans alike and you have the perfect recipe for a midnight movie experience that actually rewards repeated viewings.

“The undisputed smackdown hit of the 2011 Fantasia Festival… This is a ringside ticket you will
not want to miss!” – TWITCHFILM.COM

“The kind of sporting event you wish really existed…. It’s got all the spectacle of wrestling,
all the athleticism of boxing, and all the fantasy and special FX of horror movies… A love letter to a Friday night spent watching ‘The Monster Squad’ followed by a Saturday morning watching ‘Hulkamania’… its black heart is planted squarely in the right place.” – DREADCENTRAL.COM

“Finally, the Monster Thunderdome we’ve been waiting for.” – IO9.COM

“A silly and fun romp that put a big smile on my face. ‘Monster Brawl’ wins!” – THE HORROR

“If you like your horror with a touch of some slapstick comedy, give this one a shot.” –

“Monster Brawl was the best opening night I’ve had at Toronto After Dark Film Festival for the
five years that I’ve been going!” – THE FILM REEL

“The genius of ‘Monster Brawl’ is its attention to details.” – SIGHT ON SOUND
