The word "vorhees" appears on the side of one of the buildings of the Mexican ghost town. This is possibly an intentional nod to Jason Vorhees from Friday the 13th (1980). See more »
In the scene where Steven is telling everyone in the van the legend of Sangre de Dios, he translates it as "Blood of Christ". That would be Sangre de Cristo. The literal transalation of Sangre de Dios is translated as "Blood of God". See more »
Some behind-the-scenes clips featuring Steve (Jeremy Radin) rapping are shown during the end credits. See more »
The "wrestlemaniac" is another slashers movie, the story is about a group of young people who want to go to a town in Mexico, but instead they get two a place with a local legend about crazy wrestler from the 60s. The acting was amateurish, there was no deep script but all of these are not the real problem of this movie, the real problem is the fact that we have already seen movies like this before, a group of teenagers/young people that get lost and mistakenly find themselves running away from a local maniac, this movie just gives you the feeling that you know what is going to happened next. The "wrestlemaniac" does not bring a story we have not heard before. In summary, I did no like "wrestlemaniac", this movie is expected, and the worst thing is that the movie does not frightening as good horror movie should. for another reviewes: http://imdb.com/user/ur44998795/comments
