Here is the first movie posters for Monster Brawl:
As you can see by the plot description, Monster Brawl is just what it’s name claims. As to what the actual storyline is, well according to a review by Dread Central, “…Monster Brawl isn’t so much a movie as 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. It’s a love letter to a Friday night spent watching The Monster Squad, followed by a Saturday morning watching Hulkamania.”
So if you’re looking for a deep vampire tale that touches your icy heart, you so are not going to find it in Monster Brawl. However, if you want some mindless entertainment that’s packed full of gruesome violence then you’ve got it in this film. You can watch all of your favorite monsters (including a vampire lady) battle it out!
As to when the film will be available on DVD, unfortunately we do not know. The director and crew of Monster Brawl are currently showing the movie off at various European film festivals. Sadly there isn’t even any word on when they plan on visiting the US.

Moonlight (aka Amanda) loves to write about, read about and learn about everything pertaining to vampires. You will most likely find her huddled over a book of vampire folklore with coffee in hand. Touch her coffee and she may bite you (and not in the fun way).
