At long last, filmmaker Jesse Baget’s kick-ass wrestling/porn/slasher flick WRESTLEMANIAC (formerly EL MASCARADO MASSACRE and THE MEXICAN PORN MASSACRE) will be making its Stateside DVD bow!
While it’s already available to UK fans via Revolver Entertainment, Anchor Bay has informed Fango that the company will unleash WRESTLEMANIC next March, to coincide with the American phenomenon known as WrestleMania.
While artwork and disc details have yet to be announced, we’re hoping WRESTLEMANIAC gets the special treatment; the film (which stars professional wrestler Rey Misterio, WWF personality Leyla Milani, Adam Huss, Jeremy Radin, Margeret Scarborough, Catherine Wreford, Zack Bennett and HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES’ Irwin Keyes) is a joyous romp, with a quite storied and interesting production, and commentary and behind-the-scenes would be welcome. Says writer/director/editor Baget of the news, “I’m thrilled Anchor Bay is releasing WRESTLEMANIAC in the U.S. They’ve distributed so many of my favorite horror flicks, like DEEP RED and the EVIL DEAD series, so it’s a great honor.”
