Both better and worse than the title would suggest...

Hmmm, I saw the director actually respond to comments on the discussion boards, and I'm sure he's not a bad person, so I will keep this "civil". Part of my problem with this was that I was hoping from the title to see "El Santo/Luchadore/Mexican Wrestler" style silliness, but what I got was straight horror with a few comedic elements, done on the cheap.There were still elements of a good story in here...although I can't help but wonder why, if the guy had so much money and power, "Angus" didn't just hire a hit-man/sniper to kill "Shane" for revenge. Selling your soul to the devil so you can raise the dead and kill a whole bunch of innocent people along with your target seems to be the long way around. The story is all over the place, the pacing is off, most of the wrestlers are oddly unimpressive once removed from the usual "RAW" type staged events, the soundtrack is irritating generic Death Metal, most of the scenes seem disconnected from each other to the point of incoherence (cast members seem to wander off and appear in various parts of the prison with no transition). And the artistic choices (depiction of the blood and guts, lighting, costumes, zombie makeup, fight choreography, etc) range from cheesy to disgusting to laughable. It's possible that the film makers just had problems adjusting to telling a movie-length story, as opposed to the episodic 10 minute "soap opera in spandex" stuff they usually do. Or even how to choreograph a movie fight vs one for a TV show. Or they were hamstrung by a tight budget. It's not totally worthless. There are some good individual shots and set-ups here and there. Piper manages to salvage most of the scenes he is in, and the script gives him some decent lines to deliver now and then. No one here can really act, but now and then a cast member will let some actual personality escape in front of the camera, and you are reminded these are actual human beings trying to hit their marks and deliver their lines convincingly. "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan is always a hoot to watch. And the bagpipe music that accompanies the ending credits is a lot of fun. This is not the worst movie I've ever seen, or even seen lately. Compared to "Birdemic"or "Project Of Evil", this is like "Blade Runner". But you can give this one a miss unless you want to see every last bit of footage ever made with your Pro Wrestling favorites.

Jobbers Die -- Not Headliners

I thought this movie had a good setup: a wrestler kills a man in the ring and his brother raises a zombie army to get revenge. The fact that they hired actual wrestlers was the big reason to see the movie, and the few little moments that showed their lives behind the performance were the most interesting for me. So the vengeful brother pays for the wrestlers to show up at an abandoned prison under the guise that they will be putting on a show. As I watched the bus ride to the prison, and Roddy Piper was looking out the window with a weary expression, I felt like this might actually kind of be what it's like to be on the road. Also, the bickering and petty conversations at the restaurant felt like it might not be that far off from the truth. However, the moment they get into the jail, it just becomes a bunch of chasing. There were a couple moments when some of the guys got to show off how their training could work in an actual fight, with the best example being Matt Hardy. He took on some zombies on the cell bars that perfectly mimicked a cage match. The other thing that stood out for me was how unlikable Shane was willing to be. I was kind of hoping they would take on the zombies in some sort of tournament, as the chasing around got really repetitive.

The inconsistencies mar it

This has a great story but it's not really consistent. The story revolves around Shane accidentally killing a wrestler in the ring but Shane doesn't really stand out. Ashton Amherst and Roddy Piper stole the whole show. As someone who has worked with Ashton at PWX, i was amazed how great of a Irish accent he has. I Couldn't recognize his voice. one of the most noticeable inconsistency is when ever some is running r fighting off the zombies. It's always the same 3-4 guys that fight them before getting eaten. Then the horde comes in to finish them off. The editing i terrible. it's obvious that some of the lines where over dubbed cause they didn't match up with their lips.
