Wrestlemaniac Director Talks Sequel
There'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."
