First thing’s first: This is not a movie review.
A review is something someone writes in an attempt to either convince you to see a movie or skip it. I don’t care if you see this movie or not. So there will definitely be spoilers. If you’re not into spoilers that’s totally cool, me neither, but this movie is like a decade old, so if you’ve gotten this far and are still reading but don’t want to be spoiled...that’s on you.
So, yeah, “Spoilers, not a review, what is this, then?” you might be saying to yourself. Fair enough. This is my attempt to watch a movie that I have surprisingly very little interest in.
Surprising, because it involves two of my favorite things: Pro wrestlers and horror films. This should be right up my alley but I just never got around to it. So to celebrate October, the most candycoated murder month, I thought I’d venture back a decade and see what the relative fuss was all about.
This movie spawned a sequel. That’s not saying much.
This movie’s gross income doubled the budget. That’s saying even less.
Critics did not go easy on this WWE production, and I think I may have met someone once that said of the movie “Yeah, I saw that movie,” but that’s all I know of it’s quality going in.
I’m not a critic, I’m a “tastemaker.” So it obviously makes total sense that’d I’d be watching a movie 10 years after it’s release. Happy Halloween!
