Pro Wrestlers vs Zombies…. Wrestlers and a zero budget zombie rash flick is normall up my alley. Why oh Why am I doing this again?
This should be fun … but it’s not.
As far as the wrestlers is concerned, Matt Hardy is just high, Hacksaw Jim Dungan may or may not know he is in a movie, they couldn’t afford to keep Piper and Angle around enough to keep their stories going and only Shane Douglas would be egotisical enough to feel this movie is going send him somewhere so he stays on camera and tries waaaayyyy too hard.
Then there is the zombies.. not interesting enough to remember why they are there, everyone is mumbling and they look like high school production zombie movies from the late 80s early 90s withought the vhs child production charm. No liner story to keep me paying attention… actually , you know, fuck it, I reviewed this is 2016… here is what I wrote…
I collect terrible home made horror movies, you know that, I love Wrasslin, you know that. So I bought Pro Wrestlers vs Zombies for 10 bucks..and I kinda regret it.. total waste of everything you have, seeing the scuzz bag looking who made it i’m not shocked. Ok that was harsh but he is in the movie for a second and he felt like many a door money stealing indy wrestling promoters. I needed it in my collect and I am glad to say I own it in my weird ass collection but I will never watch it again. Wow its just random scenes edited together out of boring ass nothing, I mean sure I have lots of trash like this in my collection, but this had options of being better, I love how they main girl has her mouth covered so much cause they knew they were going to dub her haha. Also that shitty sound track wow gross, everything sounds like Buckcherry and Nicklebacks lame love child. One good bit is when (spoiler if you are completionist of Wrestling or Zombies) Roddy Piper has to bludgeon Hacksaw jim duggan in a mercy kill. And Pipers one emotional speech is hilarious. Also Shane Douglas is a big part of the show but alas even when the biggest part happens to him it’s just like his wrestling career, you know its important but you just don’t care.
Granted at the end when its mainly just Shane and Piper its seriousness is so absurd it actually becomes funny. Seriously folks if you movie has nothing going for it at least make it fun. Thank you Piper for making something out of this R I P
Yep same as it ever was. I have my wrestling themed party on Saturday so I better watch something better tomorrow so I dont ruin the vibe. One more wrestling themed horror movies till I can move on with the theme.
