'Underworld' Star Shane Brolly -- My Brother is a Psychopath Who Tried to Kill Me

EXCLUSIVE

"Underworld" star Shane Brolly says he suffered YEARS of torment from his psychopathic brother ... who most recently tried to run him over in a truck ... this according to court docs obtained by TMZ.

Brolly -- who played the treacherous Kraven in three "Underworld" films -- filed a request for a temporary restraining order in Los Angeles Superior Court this month, against his older brother Clark Brolly

The accusations are pretty severe ... Brolly says he suffered a "lifetime of misery and abuse from this hate-filled psychopath."

Brolly continues... claiming his bro calls him with death threats, sends profanity-laced emails and video messages and most recently tried to run him over in a truck -- in which he had "to run for his life."

Brolly's request was temporarily granted by a judge. He is due back in court in at the end of the month.

Calls to Clark were not immediately returned.
