This, this is a rather interesting horror film. It follows a groundskeeper that longs to be a professional wrestler. Things aren’t going well in his life apparently, due to situations he causes and then there’s a moment where a snap sort of happens. This throws a series of massacre type events into motion and that’s about the just of what this is. It doesn’t really make sense with a rather flimsy narrative and it sort of just goes along.
It does feature a surprisingly high level of nudity to it, including full body right off the bat. I’m not opposed to this type of content, it was just surprising to see so many times throughout this including a very in-depth scene later on. Like, an almost excessive scene in terms of length and positions. These really didn’t serve the plot much, and are also just somewhat there. I kind of see the events that they were aiming to showcase a progression with.
They just didn’t necessarily line-up in a way that made the most sense. At a certain point it becomes less about whatever narrative they were putting together and just becomes a never ending slaughter fest. The idea behind this was alright, but the execution just wasn’t there. You can also match that against some of the side stories including some element of money being missing and the pointless side ventures that take place.
The gore was probably the best part of this, and even with that it wasn’t well implemented in most points. Other times it was just completely over the top which was odd to see. The acting in here was really quite awful and just hard to deal with. This character Owen (Julio Bana Fernandez) was particularly bad in this.
Not that others weren’t awful with their bad acting, that one just stood out to me the most. This was fairly poorly shot, and the set design was also dreadful for the most part. Again, some neat ideas here though it didn’t quite come together to make anything even really watchable.
The rampage part also felt a tad too silly as it devolved into some wild montage. I suppose the music set the mode there, it just seemed like they had a good story going until things didn’t quite come together. I also hated the commercial moments, they were a tad long and didn’t quite feed into the plot as well as they perhaps should have considering their contextual goal.
WrestleMassacre was a bad movie, with a weak plot and it’s just a poor sort of mayhem throughout. There’s not a whole lot to talk about with this one. I suppose Randy (Richie Acevedo) did fine with the whole wrestler role, but it just didn’t have much to go off of. I mean, I didn’t even really feel a sense of empathy for the character considering his actions.
There were some that did a decent job of showcasing why, and others where the motives seemed unclear. Whatever the case, it has lots of nudity and violence. If you just want someone going around attacking folks then this does deliver along those lines. Other than that, it’s just rough to view quite honestly and I advise against doing so.
