Brutal

Fight Club meets the Twilight Zone in this mixed sci-fi/ action/adventure/fight/martial arts film, starring Morgan Benoit (Forbidden Kingdom, 47 Ronin.) and featuring sci-fi fan favorites David Mattey (HANCOCK) and Stacy Jorgensen (GREY SKIES.) The fight sequences were created by two of Hollywood’s top stunt performers, Colin Follenweider (Avatar; X-Men) and Chris Torres (Letters from Iwo Jima, HOSTEL).

Brutal, that critics are calling “genre redefining”, 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.
