It’s no secret that I’m a sucker for campy horror movies that happen to star professional wrestlers. My enthusiasm over River of Darkness, which featured Kurt Angle, Kevin Nash, and Psycho Sid, has been well documented on this blog, and I’m still anxiously anticipating the release of Diamond Dallas Page’s Black River. That established, Monster Brawl might be the proverbial king of the mountain when it comes to wrestlers taking part in silver screen gore-fests.
Starring Kevin Nash and “The Mouth of the South” Jimmy Hart, Monster Brawl is a movie about wrestling. More specifically, it’s a movie about monsters wrestling. That’s right – eight monsters, along with their managers, participating in a tournament, in a wrestling ring, inside of a graveyard, on pay-per-view, to determine the most powerful monster of all time. The action will even be called by faux wrestling commentators. The movie’s promotional website has released a list of the tournament’s combatants, complete with mini-profiles for each. My money’s on Swamp Gut.
My feeble human brain cannot even begin to process the awesomeness of this. To the trailer!
