Monster Brawl hits DVD and Blu-ray in the States on June 12, but Knoxville Horror Film Fest — co-organized by the Southeastern contingent of the Rue Crew (me) — is bringing the pain this week with a special Knoxville screening on Friday, May 4. We think seeing a movie should be an event, so we’re pulling out all the stops on this one. See Jesse T. Cook’s crowd-pleasing fright-fight flick the way it was meant to be seen – with a room full of rowdy horror fans and beer that flows like red corn syrup in a cut-rate slasher movie. And since we don’t think there’s enough live wrestling in movie theaters these days, we’ve invited a pack of local wrestlers to set up a full-size ring and take it to the mat after the film – in full monster make-up, of course!

The good folks at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival have rolled out their first wave of feature film selections for the festival’s sixth annual event, which will go down this October 20-27 at Toronto Underground Cinema.
This year’s line-up will include Monster Brawl, the horror/comedy smackdown that will serve as TAD’s Opening Night Gala; the world premiere of Troma Entertainment’s gooey serial killer yarn, Father’s Day; the American Civil War zombie flick Exit Humanity; the zomcom buddie movie Deadheads; the grim, post-apocalyptic thriller The Divide; the much buzzed-about sci-fi film Love; Redline, a seven-years-in-the-making Japanese animation spectacle; and The Theatre Bizarre, the new horror anthology you’ve been hearing about, well, everywhere.
Mind you, this list is just the tip of the bloody iceberg – you can look forward to a total of 17 new features this year, plus a short film program. There’s a ton of information over at the festival’s official site, including ticket prices and links to info about each film.
