Randy (Richie Acevedo), a mild-mannered landscaper and son of a
legendary wrestler (Nikolai Volkoff), is pushed around by pretty much
everyone, be it his boss (Rick Jermain), his boss's no-good son (Chris
O'Brocki), or his customers. For self esteem, he wants to go to a
wrestling school, but once there he's humiliated by the owner (Jimmy
Valiant). The only one who has nice words for him is a customer ofhis,
Becky (Rosanna Nelson), someone he soon falls madly in love with, even if
the feeling isn't mutual.
Becky's engaged to Owen (Julio Bana Fernandez), a deadbeat who can't
keep his shit together, has a bad spending habit, has a debt with mob boss
Mr. Valentine (Nicholas Yoder II), and even though he knows Valentine's
goons are after him, he does little to make some money to pay up other
than "investing" in crazy bets. So eventually, when they're
having a party, Valentine and his men arrive to have their revenge, not
only on him, but also Becky and his guests.
In the meantime, Randy has had enough, and possessed by a demon, he
turns into a super wrestler, and now takes down everybody who has ever
wronged him - violently. He makes it to Becky's place just when Valentine
and co are doubling down on her and Owen and their guests, and takes the
baddies out one by one - only, he doesn't stop there ...
With a film titled Wrestlemassacre, you really get what
you expect, a slasher movie with a killer wrestler who leaves a trail of
blood behind, in setpieces that employ traditional wrestling moves with
gore effects - and many a pro-wrestler in the cast sweeten the deal,
really. Stylistically, the movie's reminiscent of 1980s genre cinema,
which makes perfect sense as that era was the golden age of both wrestling
and slasher movies. That all said, I won't claim that Wrestlemassacre's
the perfect movie, its approach is pretty blunt and at times lacking
self-awareness, and the set-up of the movie takes up too much screentime
and tries to hammer its point home not only too hard but also too often -
but once the action starts, the film really comes into its own, making it
perfect party movie material.
