An intense and unsettling psychological thriller

When 25-year-old state witness, Mia Hoffman changed her testimony and allowed a cop-killer to go free, she was vilified. Left with undiagnosed PTSD, she suffers extreme anxiety, and hallucinations so vivid that she's no longer sure what's real and what isn't. Rejected by her friends, harassed by the police, and dismissed by the medical profession, a determined Mia forces herself to attend alternative therapy training, led by Franklin Spitz, a celebrity therapist who specializes in resolving PTSD. Using increasingly provocative psychological techniques, Franklin probes Mia for the hidden memories underlying her condition. But the goals of therapist and client are wildly divergent - Mia is searching for reality while Franklin, also suffering from a shocking trauma, is desperately trying to avoid it. Their strong wills and fragile grasps of reality lead you though a terrifying rabbit-hole of suspenseful showdowns, each more frightening than the other.

This original, unpredictable, brilliantly stylish and blazingly original thriller pins you to your seat and will keep you entranced long after the film is over.

Fight Club meets the Twilight Zone in this mixed sci-fi/ action/adventure/fight/martial arts film, starring Morgan Benoit (Forbidden Kingdom, 47 Ronin.) and featuring sci-fi fan favorites David Mattey (HANCOCK) and Stacy Jorgensen (GREY SKIES.) The fight sequences were created by two of Hollywood’s top stunt performers, Colin Follenweider (Avatar; X-Men) and Chris Torres (Letters from Iwo Jima, HOSTEL).

Brutal, that critics are calling “genre redefining”, centers on Trevor (Morgan Benoit), who is abducted at the age of fifteen by an unseen alien presence. Forced into nearly two decades of no-holds-barred fights against other abductees, Trevor evolves from an innocent boy into a brutal fighting machine.

Derek, (Jeff Hatch) an ambulance chasing lawyer, is the latest lab-rat abductee forced to fight Trevor. As they exchange increasingly violent beatings over the course of weeks and months, the brutality of their existence ironically begins to reveal the true nature of their humanity.

With elements of the paranormal juxtaposed with the most violent fight scenes you will ever see on screen, BRUTAL explores the animal aspect of human nature and our propensity to commit unthinkable acts against each other. Yet, it is through this prism of brutality that our capacity to love proves victorious even in the worst of circumstances.
