From the Press Release
Raven Banner has acquired international rights to two of the hottest genre films from 2011, MONSTER BRAWL and EXIT HUMANITY.

Written and directed by Jesse T. Cook, the film stars Dave Foley, Robert Maillet (Sherlock Holmes), Art Hindle (The Brood), wrestling stars Kevin Nash, Jimmy Hart, UFC’s Herb Dean and Lance Henriksen (Aliens) as the Narrator.
The film stars horror icons Bill Moseley (Devil’s Rejects, House of 1000 Corpses), Dee Wallace (E.T., Cujo), Stephen McHattie (The Watchmen, 300), introducing new horror hero Mark Gibson, and narrated by Brian Cox (Braveheart, The Bourne Identity).
Raven Banner’s Managing Partner Michael Paszt and James Fler negotiated the deal with producers Geddes, Cook and Matt Wiele of Foresight Features.
