Not to be confused with the upcoming Showtime series bearing the title “Penny Dreadful” or the After Dark HorrorFest entry of the same name, The Penny Dreadful Picture Show is a new horror anthology starring Sid Haig, Jeffrey Combs, and ex-wrestler Al Snow.
The horror-comedy Overtime: The Movie (review) starring Al Snow and John Wells is now available. One of the film's creators, Brain Cunningham, has just released insider details of how filmmakers can create their own film and get it into Walmart stores entitled How to Make a Movie for $2,700.
Okay, kids! Overtime: The Movie (review) releases to the masses on January 1, 2013, and fans will laugh until their eyes bleed in this latest sliver of horror/sci-fi lunacy.
Al Snow may not have quite reached the same superstar heights as many of his pro wrestling colleagues who have gone on to acting careers, but of late he has been quickly carving out his own niche as a b-movie star. From J.O.B. Squad to hit squad, Overtime casts the ex-grappler as a hitman contending with an alien parasite and the zombies it spawns.
I'm increasingly coming to the conclusion that The Wrestler was a pack of lies. Judging by the number of low budget horror movies starring pro wrestlers past their prime instead of being washed up and struggling to make ends meet, Randy the Ram would have been starring in a movie like The Legacy in place of Al Snow. From playing a crazy wrestler that came to the ring with a severed head to playing a crazy killer more likely to sever heads. A natural progression, I think.
