Monster Brawl

release year: 2011
genre: horror/comedy
viewing setting: home Bluray, 12/2/12

synopsis: Eight classic monsters fight to the end for the distinction of being the champion.

impressions: What do you get when you mix a wrestling match and a bunch of monsters? This film, which is set up like a wrestling pay-per-view except with monsters. Yeah, it was cheesy as hell, but it was also entertaining, with tons of direct and hidden references to classic monster films and wrestling. The special effects were fairly well-done and there were plenty of humorous lines and moments.

something this movie has that no other movie has: a cyclops that can fire laser beams from its eye

acting: All of the monsters did a good job. Real-life wrestling personality Jimmy Hart was the ring announcer.

final word: Cheesy, goofy monster wrestling fun.
