What happens when you get a group of amateur porn makers,
stranded in a deserted Mexcian town, where there is the
legend of a monster wrestler? You get "Wrestlemaniac,"
thatís what. Hereís sort of the storyÖ
A Movie/DVD Review
Our group of people who have never seen a bad horror
movie before, led by Alphonse (Adam Huss), are traveling
through Mexico looking for a good location to shoot some
porn with their girls Dallas (Leyla Milani), Debbie
(Margaret Scarborough), and Daisy (Catherine Wreford), nice
stripper names if I do say so myself. In their travels they
come across a dilapidated gas station with a scary old man
(Irwin Keyes) who tells them about the town of La Sangre De
Dios where legend tells of a killer wrestler named El
Mascarado (Rey Misterio). Of course our heroes stumble upon
the town, donít heed the warnings of the scary old man, film
some gratuitous nudity, and then, one by one, El Mascarado
lives up to the wrestler creed of how to win.
Sure, thereís the backstory of how El Mascarado was
created by the Mexican government to become a super-wrestler,
and when he couldnít be controlled, well, he was left to
rot, or something like that, in the town, but it doesnít really matter
because our heroes are horror-movie stupid, exactly like you
want in a movie called "Wrestlemaniac."
Now Iím usually one for a fun horror movie, and "Wrestlemaniac"
had all of the elements, namely a stupid plot, stupid
people, gore, and nudity, but when Dallasí shorts got ripped
off, and although it was nice seeing her running around in
her underwear, it actually put the movie too over-the-top
for me in horror-movie stupid, that and the fact that I
didnít like that they left the movie open for a sequel when
the dumb broad should have just done as she was told, and by
her not doing so the ending isnít really a surprise, and it
ruined the fun.
If you want some campy horror fun you could do worse than
"Wrestlemaniac," but not liking the ending dropped the movie
for me a lot so Iím leaving my rating at 2 stars out of 5.
As far as the DVD goes, itís got your standard commentary
track and some behind the scenes stuff, but nothing hugely
extra so if you can only find this movie on cable, you wonít
be missing too much. However, if you are a horror-movie
buff, go ahead and add the DVD to your collection.
Thatís it for this one! Iím The Dude on the Right!!
