Wrestlemaniac Director Talks Sequel

Jesse BagetThere’s something special about “>Wrestlemaniac (review). The thought of a group of unlikeable people stuck in a deserted Mexican ghost town getting mauled and defaced by a maniac masked wrestler has a certain charm to it. Could we get some more of that please?

Bloody Good Horror dropped us a line today saying that their recent interview with Wrestlemaniac director Jesse Baget hints at more loco Luchador action to come! According to the filmmaker, “I definitely have some ideas for a sequel and I have a couple other projects that I’m getting underway, but I would definitely like to come back to it, just because I think with a slightly bigger budget … there’s just so much more we could do with the Mexican Wrestling concept. You know, put him on some motorcycles, have some midget fights. there’s a lot to do with it. And I’d want to make it a little more of an action horror, just a real bloody action kind of film rather than so much of a slasher film that it was this time.

Mike Phalin

Since 1997, Michael Patrick Phalin has been a contributing writer to various websites including Dread Central, iMockery, Bloody Disgusting and KrytenSyxx. During the early 1980s, Phalin's love of the movie industry was fueled by the VHS tapes he found during his time spent at the video rental store his mother worked at. Rather than attending a daycare regularly, young Michael would form a tower of tapes with interesting cover art and go watch each one, the very first of these being the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' From that point he was hooked on horror and the process behind creating special effects. In his twenties, Mike met Steve 'Uncle Creepy' Barton and was soon aiding the horror website Dread Central with film reviews. As the site grew in popularity, Phalin soon started writing news stories and conducting interviews on a daily basis. After a few years, he decided to take a break from writing to focus on other opportunities. After moving to a beach community with his wife Michelle, both were cast to appear in the final season of A&E's home improvement show 'Fix This Yard' in 2013. This event rekindled Mike's love of the entertainment industry. Between the time he spends being with his family, Michael continues to contribute to Dread Central both with writing and photography. In his mid-thirties, Phalin took up oil painting after being inspired by an episode of Bob Ross. Pieces of his artwork and photography can be found on his Tumblr and official website.

    Good for you. As for this…? Midget fights. Nice.

  • Uncle Creepy

    For the record, all of that was already included in my audio interview from last week. The reason we didn’t run a story is because these were just ideas he was throwing around, and nothing concrete.

    Midget fights.

    Ah, two of the greatest words in the English language.
