Wrestling Meets Horror in Powerbomb: Help Make This Movie a Reality

Cleveland, Ohio’s Sickening Pictures, TurnStyle Films, and 1984 Productions have teamed up together to produce a new thriller that lives in the world of independent wrestling. Titled Powerbomb, the film takes the concept of fandom and takes it to an extreme level. The production companies will be working Absolute Intense Wrestling, a promotion company that has worked with some of the biggest wrestlers in the history of the sport.

The film will star Matt Cross (Son of Havoc on LUCHA UNDERGROUND), Wes Allen, Pants Pantsley, Gregory Iron, Alex Daniels, Dick Justice, and other wrestling favorites and the plan is to begin shooting in May.

To make the film become a reality, Sickening Pictures’ BJ Colangelo and Zach Shildwachter have launched an Indiegogo that is seeking $10,000. They write that the funds are needed, “…toward talent, equipment rental, catering and anything else we need to ensure that this film is the absolute best we can produce.

They’ve released a call for help as well as a proof-of-concept video, both of which can be seen below. If you’re both a wrestling fan as well as a lover of horror, this sounds like it’s going to be right up your alley! Any help you can offer through the above link will go a long way to getting this picture produced. And who doesn’t want to see more wrestling-based horror movies, right?

Synopsis:
Powerbomb is the story of an independent wrestler on the verge of breaking into the big time, but he’s contemplating leaving it all behind to spend more time with his family. When our wrestler’s biggest fan hears the news, he decides to take matters into his own hands to ensure that his champion gets to the top by any means necessary.
