Kurt Angle Wrestles Kevin Nash Down a River of Darkness

Published

on

Despite his last feature End Game (review here) receiving a critical powerslamming from yours truly, indie filmmaker Bruce Koehler of North Shore Pictures sent word to let me know he actually loved my less-than-stellar review of his serial killer thriller. He took the drubbing in good enough spirits to even pass along to me some exclusive news on his next flick, River of Darkness, a supernatural thriller with an all-star cast of pro wrestlers and horror actors, including Kurt Angle, Kevin Nash, and original Night of the Living Dead zombie Bill Hinzman.

Unspeakable evil has fallen on a quiet river town. Sheriff Logan is thrust into a chilling nightmare of death and mayhem that paralyzes the town. He then learns of the community’s seedy past and the evil that has risen from purgatory to exact revenge on the town. He is confronted by the spirits of old river squatters, “The Jacobs Boys,” who possess the very essence of evil.

Gold medal-winning Olympic wrestler turned professional wrestler Kurt Angle portrayed a psycho sexual serial killer in Koehler’s End Game. This time Angle makes a face turn playing the heroic sheriff out to stop a bloody trail of vengeance from being left behind by three hulking brothers killed by a lynch mob thirty years earlier.

Fellow pro wrestlers Kevin Nash (who has also appeared in The Punisher and The Longest Yard) and Psycho Sid Vicious, along with Bill Laing, the actor portraying the Mothman in The Mothman Prophecies, oppose Angle as the hulking Jacoby Boys.

Bill Hinzman, best known as the very first zombie to appear in the opening minutes of the original Night of the Living Dead, is Harvey Hix, a reclusive vigilante who knows an awful lot about the town’s seedy history.

Other recognizable faces appearing include another pro wrestler, Ray Lloyd (known to WCW fans as the Mortal Kombat-inspired grappler “Glacier”), Allan Rowe Kelly of Don’t Look in the Basement, and My Bloody Valentine 3D‘s Sam Nicotero.

First Look Entertainment will release Bruce Koehler’s End Game to DVD on December 1st. Look for River of Darkness sometime next year.

Koehler was kind enough to send along an exclusive first look at the conceptual DVD artwork for River of Darkness. I’m more interested in seeing Nash and Vicious as angry good ol’ boy zombies.
