Pittsburgh filmmaker Bruce Koelher has been carving a niche for himself with a pair of horror movies starring Olympic gold medalist/ amateur wrestler turned professional wrestler Kurt Angle. The duo behind last year’s End Game and next week’s River of Darkness are back for thirds with Death From Above.
This time FX master Tom Savini, the Maniac Cop himself, and more pro wrestlers are getting in on the terror.
Kurt Angle finds himself cast as a Druid demon, automatically guaranteeing that even if the movie turns out to be a dud, it’ll be an entertaining dud. Tom Savini is the sheriff standing in his way. Maniac Cop Robert Z’Dar factors into it all somehow. But Angle’s greatest nemesis to this force of evil will be a fellow pro wrestler: Psycho Sid Vicious, who can be seen playing a waterlogged zombie terrorizing Angle in River of Darkness. More pro wrestlers from the TNA promotion appear in the form of tag-team James Storm and jacked-up Matt Morgan.
An ancient Druid demon has returned to claim his prize… to reign over the world through one thousand years of darkness. The last time Druid demon Thule (Kurt Angle) walked the earth was during the Dark Ages. Now, after one thousand years, he has returned from beyond to assemble his pagan monk worshippers and to wreak havoc on the natural world. Gunnar Halgrim (TNA Wrestling’s James Storm), an ordinary blue-collar steelworker, is plagued by disturbing nightmares and discovers through a clairvoyant gypsy that his ancestral bloodline and a family heirloom place him in danger of Thule’s evil dark path. As the drama mounts, Thule’s twisted and escalating rampage of death and destruction will soon collide with this small town to square off against over zealous Sheriff Raynick (Tom Savini). But one man stands between him and his Ultimate Reign: Herzog (Psycho Sid Vicious). The two forces face off in a battle of Good vs. Evil in this low budget thriller. Will Thule reign once again over the world into one thousand years of darkness?
We’ll definitely keep you posted when a Death From Above trailer falls from the skies.
