Wolf von Frankenstein (Basil Rathbone), son of Henry, arrives back in Europe from America, twenty-five years after his father's death, with his wife and child, to claim his inheritance, his father's castle. After a far from friendly reception from the locals, Wolf sets about looking to restore his family's honour.
Enlisting the help of the dubious blacksmith Ygor (Bela Lugosi), Wolf is shown the Monster (Boris Karloff)'s body, lying in a hidden crypt. At first repelled by what he sees, Wolf soon comes round to the idea that reviving the Monster would be a good way of regaining his family's honour – Doh! With the 'armless' local Inspector Krogh (Lionel Atwill) hanging around and hassling Wolf, matters do not improve when it becomes clear why Ygor was keen for the Monster to be resurrected.
Following on from director James Whales' Frankenstein (1931) and Bride of Frankenstein (1935), Son of Frankenstein (1939) was the third in Universal Studio's Frankenstein series. Until Son's release there had been a decline in the fortunes of Universal's horror output at the box office and they had all but ceased producing them.
Imagine that the events played out in Romero's original Night of the Living Dead are placed against a 1950's back-drop where, following a Zombie War, the walking dead have been tamed by a neck brace that curbs their carnivorous leanings and become domestic helps.
Young Timmy Robinson (K'Sun Ray) has never been convinced that the world is now a safer place and believes that a zombie outbreak is never far away. When his mum Helen (played by Carrie-Anne Moss) decides against her husband's wishes to buy a zombie to help out round the home, Timmy finds himself with a new friend, albeit one that's dead and likes to eat people.
Tim befriends the zombie help and nicknames him 'Fido'. Tim soon finds out that he was right to question whether the zombies are really under control when Fido's collar malfunctions and sets into motion another potential zombie outbreak.
When amateur film maker and Johnny Knoxville look-alike Alfonse (Adam Huss) comes across legendary Mexican ghost town 'La Sangre de Dios' with his crew, he decides that he has found the ideal location to start shooting. However, 'La Sangre de Dios' is known as the final resting place of the loony, murdering Luchador wrestler El Mascarado (a.k.a. The Masked Man). Created for the 1984 Olympics, the masked nut-case has been lurking around the ghost town with no one to compete against until Alfonse's crew turn up - and boy is he keen to compete! Very soon young bodies are beaten and chucked around with the aim being to remove the faces from those he defeats to place as trophies on his wall.
Made under the working title of The Mexican Porn Massacre, writer/director Jesse Baget, who also edited and probably made everyone cups of tea too, has crafted a unique entry into the serial killer/slasher genre. Whilst generic in terms of the template it plots, WrestleManiac pleasantly surprises by crafting some genuine suspense, a few surprises and some terrific splatter into its short running time. It also scores points for having characters that feel believable and identifiable, thanks to a cast that can act, so you do actually know and recognise who they are before they get killed off.
Leila Mimmack stars as orphan Blue, a nineteen-year-old escort in Brighton. Blue is in for a rough ride. We know this as we begin at the story's end seeing her lay bleeding on the beach. She kills time, between tricks, with her friend/dealer Glenny (Chris Waller). You just know that deep down Glenny loves Blue and that his love for her will come into play later in the flick.
Blue's bosses are also by-the-number caricatures. There's violent Freddie (David Sibley), who is unable to say anything without growling, and his partner Cynthia (Julia Graham) that has a heart of gold as plentiful as her never ending supply of booze.
