From the Studio
When a string of zombie killings hits the coast, it’s up to heroic Ulysses and his wildcard band of “luchadores” to stop the undead’s sudden and mysterious rampage. But when an old friend falls under suspicion for the murder of a young waitress, ancient grudges resurface while the killings carry on, a fiendish plot is revealed, and the thirst for vengeance becomes an immutable force. Drawing inspiration from George Romero films, 1960s Marvel Comics, and Mexican wrestling movies, “ENTER…ZOMBIE KING” smashes archetypes and emasculates genres. A true psychotronic thrill ride! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

It's a simple concept, and once you accept a world in which masked wrestlers are superstars of justice and zombies roam the earth, there's nothing in the movie that sacrifices the plot for the sake of laughs. Occasionally the wrestlers serve as top secret consultants for the government, and that's cool too. Since the movie takes itself seriously, it works.
The wrestling was also fairly decent. Whoever was under those masks either had some actual training or put some time into working on their moves, which is nice. The screenwriter tossed in a couple of technical wrestling terms without being a showoff; also good. And Case clearly also has a handle on the importance of wrestling dynasties and family and honor.
Mind you, you don't have to be the mad wrestling fan that I am to enjoy this movie. My pal Chris thought it was just grand. There's honor and battle and zombies and love and at least one very disturbing kiss. The acting was a cut above what one might expect, although that may have been because most of the protagonists were behind masks.
So you aren't gonna get anything insanely good, but as zombie movies go, this is the kind of low budget movie that gives the genre of low budget zombie movies a good name.
This movie rocks so damn hard- masked wrestlers, zombies, hot punk chicks, gratuitous nudity and violence, and a hardcore soundtrack. It all adds up to the perfect entertainment!
It's a respectful yet fun homage to the El Santo's Mexican masked wrestler movies.
Good stuff- just get it!
