Ever since we started this site in 2009, been proponents of independent horror. It’s been our largest focus, though in reality we barely scratch the surface in terms of what we cover versus the amount of requests and PR emails we receive each day. Here’s the truth about this post: I have no idea if this movie is going to be any good. However, as a giant fan of the sport of kings, aka professional wrestling, it caught my eye for a pair of reasons.
First, check out the logo for WOODHAVEN MEDIA:
The first thing that struck me when it hit my eyeballs? My God, that’s the classic WRESTLEMANIA logo from my childhood. That is Andre the Giant body slammingBig John Stud. That is Savage vs Steamboat. That is King Kong Bundy beating SD Jones in nine seconds. That is Wendi Richter beating the Fabulous Moolah. That is Hogan vs Andre. That is WWF ice cream bars and the “Rock & Wrestling Connection.” Friends, that is my childhood:
The other thing that caught my attention? That would be”Big Daddy Cool” KevinNash himself in the picture that graces the top of this post. Nash has reinvented himself as a character with well received roles in the Magic Mike series. However, he’ll always be best known as the guy who helped launch the NWO angle in WCW, which forever changed the landscape of professional wrestling. He’ll also be the guy whose ego and backstage political maneuvering helped put WCW out of business a mere five years later.
Rather than write bunch of nasty things about Nash, which my non-wrestling readers could give a damn about, I’ll just add the synopsis for Anders Manor here: “It’s Amy’s 18th birthday. While most girls her age are celebrating with friends and painting the town, Amy is checking herself out of the insane asylum. Her mother Jane decides to take her on a family get away, to celebrate her birthday and re-acclimate her to everyday life. A weekend of, camp fires, and cotton candy socials, to rekindle family ties, quickly turns to the most horrific family reunion in American history. And it all goes down at ANDERS MANOR.”
Look for Anders Manor later in 2017.
