The back story is some small town promoter who lives in his moms basement wasn't getting much attention with regular wrestling shows. So he invited a bunch of monsters and mythical creatures to face off in the ring. Set out in a graveyard somewhere, no live audience, just 2 commentators, a referee, a bunch of cameras operated by what seems like no one, and Jimmy Mouth of the South Hart with 2 chicks in bikini's playing himself (says alot already) and stupidly voiced over like Shao Khan of Mortal Kombat by Lance Hendrikson.
Then introduce the monsters, and their managers. Do a stupid small mini back-story of how the monsters came to the event, and place them in a boring match even for small time promotion events standards. Take note of the extra padded ring floor and wonder why it wasn't used to an advantage?
The contestants are
- Zombie Man (brilliantly named, ey?)
- Witch B*%# (even better)
- Cyclops (oh, an original name at last)
- Vampire Girl (are they even trying here?)
- Mummy (not THE, just Mummy)
- Wherewolf (you can do Zombie Man, but not Wolf Man?)
- Swamp Gut (The Swamp Thing too hard to announce?)
- Frankenstein. (Played by Robert Malliet, the pro wrestler Kurgan if you remember him in the WWF Attitude era)
Unfortunately Dracula, Jason Voorhees, Freddy Kruger, Micheal Myers and Leatherface where busy playing Russian Roulette at Ghostface's that night. The prank went so well that Hannibal Lector offered to clean up the remains when they where done playing their practical joke on Ghostface.Read more ›
The premise here is that the movie is a televised pay-per-view event pitting famous monsters in history against each other in a series of deathmatches until one ultimate victor emerges. It sounds like a winning idea. Until you see the finished product and realize that's 90 minutes you'll never get back.
The problem here is the question of story. Sure, we've got a concept, and we've got decent effects, and even a couple of recognizable names and faces, but we have no plot, no journey from point A to point B, no character arcs, nothing. We don't even have someone to root for because, with no story, there's no identifiable "hero".
The movie is treated, literally, like a standard pay-per-view event. And, while the focus is on wrestling, which I haven't watched in 25 years, I watch a lot of boxing, and am familiar with the format. Before each match, we get a minute or so clip of the fighters' backgrounds, then go to the tale of the tape before the match begins. The fighters battle it out, one monster is killed, and it all starts over again.
Providing commentary are Buzz Chambers (Dave Foley, "The Kids in the Hall") and Sasquatch Sid Tucker (Art Hindle, PORKY'S). And that's it. There's your movie.
MONSTER BRAWL takes the viewer through five rounds, two in the middleweight division, then two in heavyweight, ending with the title match. There are two conferences, monsters and undead. In the first match, middleweight monsters, Cyclops fights a witch, then in middleweight undead it's the mummy against a vampiress.Read more ›

Sci-fi channel could not make a low-budget movie this bad. Not worth the plastic case it came in.Published 6 months ago by sergeant90
This movie will entertain wrestling fans more than movie fans. But wouldn't it be cool if it were a video game too?
It's almost like, Smackdown meets Mortal Kombat!
