BRUTAL Is The Name Of The Movie. For The New Trailer, It's An Understatement.

It's been a while since we heard from writer and director Donald Flaherty who has been busy promoting his latest contained mixed martial arts action sci-fi thriller, Brutal. A trailer went viral in October last year and eventually had its share of exclusive screenings. Nowadays, it appears Flaherty is ready to stir things up following its debut at Cannes, which means some brand new sales ink. It also means a trailer, and no, it's not for the faint of heart. But it's safe to say that this little gem isn't exactly geared toward the PG-13 crowd.

Grown folks only, kids! Check it all out below!



SYNOPSIS:
BRUTAL centers on Trevor (Morgan Benoit), abducted from his backyard at the age of fifteen by an unseen alien presence. Forced into nearly two decades of savage fights to the finish against other abductees inside an unearthly mixed martial arts arena, Trevor has evolved from an innocent boy into a brutal fighting machine. 
Derek, (Jeff Hatch) an ambulance-chasing lawer, is the latest lab-rat abductee forced to fight Trevor. As the two men exchange ever-increasing beatings over the course of weeeks and months, the brutality of their existence and the true nature of their humanity is slowly revealed. 
With elements of THE TWILIGHT ZONE and THE PRISONER, BRUTAL explores through science fiction, allegory and psychological drama, man's violent nature and our propensity to commit unthinkable acts of violence against each other. Yet through this prism of brutality, our capacity to love one another, even in the worst of circumstances, is celebrated.
