Plot Summary:
"On their way to Caba San Lucas, the cast and crew of a low-budget film get lost and come upon "La Sangre De Dios", a ghost town with a spine-tingling legend about an insane Mexican wrestler. The leader of the pack and first time director, Alphonse, likes the town's gritty appearance and decides it would be the perfect setting for his film. The crew positions the camera and snaps on the lights. When Alphonse yells "Action!", it arouses the famous and now insane Luchador, "El Mascarado" (The Masked Man), who begins a game of his own. One by one, the cast and crew are snatched, beaten and dragged to a bloody death. The few left alive must figure out how to beat the wrestler at his own deadly game, or die trying."

This film is the most intentionally hilarious thing I have seen in ages. Taking a pop at Ďseriousí horror films, Wrestle Maniac begins TCM style as a group of sweaty hotties head through Mexico in a van on their way to shoot an amateur porno. The group gets lost and ends up at a skanky gas station where the proprietor warns them about stopping in La Sangre De Dios, a nearby ghost town. The group is encouraged to stop off in the town by Mexican wrestling enthusiast Steve, which they soon regret when El Mascarado begins to kill them one by one, ripping off their faces in the process.

The film looks awesome for a low budget production and has a great cast of rising stars. It is creepy, has a good villain, a really good jump scare or two and one of the most hilarious extended chase sequences Iíve ever seen.

OVERALL SUMMARY
The film is really short, with the credits rolling around the 69 minutes mark, but itís the most entertaining hour of horror fun Iíve seen in years. Buy this now!
