Default Monster Brawl (2011)







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”).

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.

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.
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.

In the WWF, he was known by the ring name Kurrgan, and he was part of the Oddities stable during the late 90's, early 00's

Bet most of you have no idea what I'm on about!

Depends on your definition of 'horror themed'

The Oddities originally consisted of a group of "freakish" wrestlers, including the masked Golga (formerly Earthquake [real name John Tenta]) who wore a mask with stubby 'horns' on top, thus making him look deformed) the towering Kurrgan, who stood at seven feet tall and Giant Silva [real name Paulo De Silva, who was seven foot, two). Other members included The Jackyl (real name Don Callis [also known as Cyrus in ECW])

During their time at the WWF, they were both heels (bad guys) and faces (good guys), and they were attached to the rap band Insane Clown Posse
