Slug Street Scrappers (2012-14) is a martial arts web series written and directed by Micah Brock for Whirlwind Action and Dragon Phoenix Entertainment.

Slug Street Scrappers is an action-packed comedic movie quadrilogy that was inspired by the “Beat Em’ Up” video game genre of the early 1990’s (Streets of Rage, Final Fight, Double Dragon, etc).  With campy humor, video game style outfits and a blend of both speed-based & contact-based (real contact hits) fight choreography,  Slug Street Scrappers is tailored to entertain fans of martial arts flicks, retro “Beat Em’ Up” games or Japanese anime.

The “quadrilogy” is …

My thoughts… I’ve never even played any of those “Beat Em’ Up” video games that inspired Slug Street Scrappers, but that doesn’t stop me from enjoying it! This epic “quadrilogy” is fun to watch (even when it takes itself a little to seriously)! In addition, skilled martial artist Micah Brock cast his films with equally skilled [but much lovelier!] female martial artists and aspiring actresses like Katelyn Brooke, Anna Ranoso, Mickey Facchinello, Jessie Graff, and Tess Kielhamer! Kielhamer, who plays Knuckles Clarke, is my favorite scrapper in Slug Street Scrappers! She played Lara Croft in episode #4 [Lara Croft vs Nathan Drake] of Bat in the Sun‘s web series Super Power Beat Down. Check it out (here). She’ll also co-star in director Leo Kei Angelos’s upcoming action/comedy Knockouts! Check it out (here)!
