This project is an attempt to help me get dvds that for one reason or another I’ve never seen off of my shelf and give them a watch. Today’s pick is Zombie Beach Party aka Enter… Zombie King.
IMDb: Zombie Beach Party (Video 23 November 2004)
Ulysses, a professional wrestler, is going to watch another fight in which a wrestler is up against a horde of zombies…
Sorry no subtitles for Santo, so I swapped it out for the closest available thing. The movie takes place in a world where constantly masked luchadores roam freely in what seems like a post-apocalyptic not-quite-wasteland. There’s very little in the way of horror. It has wrestling and features professional wrestlers in various roles. The one I’m familiar with is Jim “The Anvil” Neidhardt who plays a bit part as the sheriff. The movie itself is an oddball. I’ve been a fan of lucha libre since the mid-90s and when I wrestled I worked under a mask. Something about masks captured my imagination. I’m not sure who this would appeal to besides me. There have to be other people that fall into the venn diagram of low budget movies and lucha libre. If this describes you, track it down.
