For all your cult film, tv, cartoon, comic and video game needs

Monster of Man available worldwide today!

MONSTERS OF MAN is an action packed, suspenseful sci-fi thriller that reveals the terrifying dangers of sophisticated AI robotics used for military applications when a corrupt CIA agent (Neal McDonough – Minority Report, Captain America, Netflix’s 1922 and Altered Carbon) conspires with a robotics company to field test highly advanced prototype robots with the aim of winning a lucrative military contract.   Their plan is to drop the robots into the infamous Golden Triangle to test their battle skills on unsuspecting armed drug cartels that no one will miss. The illegal mission is a disaster; haywire robots slaughter an entire village of innocent people. The brutal massacre is witnessed by a group of volunteer doctors on a goodwill mission.
Everyone is considered collateral damage when you need to hide the truth.
In his spectacular directorial debut, Mark Toia delivers high-end storytelling, capturing incredible performances, with all aspects elevated by incredible visual effects. All within a nightmarish vision of how deadly mechanized AI can go horribly wrong! Audiences at the Sydney Science Fiction Film Festival gave the film the win with rapturous applause. The general consensus at the post-screening bash was… F***ing Awesome! INDIE FILM HUSTLE were so blown away, stating that “Monsters of Man is one of the best films they have seen in 2020. A must watch!”
Monsters of Man entirely funded by multi award-winning Australian commercials director Mark Toia
Throwing the rule book out the window, director Mark Toia funds and self distributes an incredible, yet hugely ambitious film, as an experiment for future film makers.
Is he mad or genius!
Originating from a very successful career as an advertising photographer, Mark Toia was encouraged into directing TV commercials by his clients. They desired to bring his exceptional eye to the screen. 20 years on, Mark has become one of the world’s most sought after international directors and is now receiving scripts from Hollywood’s finest. Toia’s ability to deliver a stunningly artistic story full of drama through to shooting a fast and furious action piece is only a glimpse into what he can deliver.
Toia’s legendary cinematography skills, vast post-production VFX knowledge, joined with his ever-evolving mind and machine-like work ethics make him the perfect choice for any film production. His passion is to capture incredible performances within an image that emotionally compels. This combination puts him squarely at the forefront of today’s film & TV industry, and is touted as being the next hot property.
Neal McDonough as “Major” Award-winning actor Neal McDonough is credited in “Band of Brothers”, “Minority Report”, “Captain America”, “Justified”, “Desperate Housewives”, “Walking Tall” and more.  More recently, he starred in the award-winning film, “Greater”, “1922” for Stephen King and “Game Over Man” for Netflix.
Jose Rosete as “Boller.” Jose Rosete has over 300 credits to his name.  Quentin Tarantino called his film “Lowlife” “a stroke of genius.”  Other highlights include the AMC spin off “The Walking Dead: Red Machete”, “Dead Bullet”, doing motion capture and voice for “Resident Evil: End of Zoe.”
Monsters of Man pushes Indie Film making to the limits – director Mark Toia brings the Hollywood game on an Indie Budget
Self-funded Director Mark Toia’s sci-fi action film ‘Monsters of Man’ is a ground-breaking result in independent film making – some called him mad at the start – but after seeing the film, the term “Maverick” was used in Australian news Sydney Morning Herald and Melbourne’s The Age.  The critics agree, he’s done a Hollywood film on an indie budget! How?!
Not only did Toia self-fund, direct, produce and do VFX for his highly ambitious sci-fi extravaganza, but he’s distributing it himself as well, rejecting all the big Hollywood offers that were made and to go it alone.  In the industry, these ideas are unheard of, is he actually crazy… or genius?  Time will tell.
Crazy or not, he considers it as a commercial creative experiment as well as a calling card to Hollywood.  And with the many large scripts coming from around the world, the movie is already achieving the latter.
