Nash and a third brother seek revenge on those who wrongly killed them. They
don't only go after those who ended their lives but the descendants
of the guilty parties as well. But, the sheriff, Kurt Angle, is on the case
and out to stop the undead from further terrorizing an otherwise docile riverside

PSYCHO SID VICIOUS
- Sid is brought back to the Wrestling Epicenter. He
starts off by telling us that his leg is doing fine & its the best
its ever been following the horrible injury he suffered in WCW.

other wrestlers like Kevin Nash, Kurt Angle, & even Glacier in addition
- The movie is low budget and direct to DVD, but Sid was impressed with how
professionally made it was and feel the wrestlers add credibility to the
- Sid is a big horror movie fan & was particularly excited about getting
to work with the actor who played the first zombie in the original Night
of the Living Dead and kill him!
- He doesnt speak much in the film, but says he was used to not getting
much dialogue after being in Ready to Rumble, and after playing a character
in another independent film which he compares to Boo Riley from To Kill a
- The interview keeps up with Sids interest film and he compares it
to wrestling. He specifically references the classic 12 Angry Men
and how the claustrophobic setting of that film is similar to trying to work
a tag team match with so many different variables in a smaller space.
- James reveals that his favorite line from the film came from Kevin Nash:
- For Sid, the only problem with making the movie was dealing with the long
makeup progress & the late hours shooting.
- A short film that Sid is working on is a documentary about local wrestling
originally called F is for Fun. He credits wrestling for giving
him interest in film as well. However, he was advised to change the title
for the other F word it might be confused for. He says there is no cursing
in the film and its meant to showcase local family entertainment wrestling.
Sid then gives some interesting stories about making this film which also
features Scott Hall.
- His son Gunner has gotten into the wrestling business and is currently
playing one of Sids old gimmicks, Lord Humongous. When talking about
wrestling him, James jokes that it would be like Hulk Hogan Vs. Hollywood
Hogan, but Sid laughs and then jokingly says F*** you man .my
kid didnt kill anybody
- He is impressed with his sons work to date despite limited experience.
He says hes a natural and a perfect fit for the Lord Humongous character.
Much to the hosts surprise, Sid states that Gunner is bigger than him.
- Sid has been working the Indy circuit and hes having fun. Kevin Nash
has been brought into WWE with a Legends Contract, and when asked if hed
be willing to get something similar, he doesnt see it happening. Hes
50 now and doesnt see much going on there. He does say that hed
love to play the Lord Humongous character there.
- When asked if he felt he was influential in the evolution of the big man
in wrestling, he feels that guys like Vader & Bam Bam Bigelow were bigger
contributors. He was very impressed that big 400lbs guys like them could
do so many athletic things. Sid then sends his best wishes to Bam Bams
old manager Oliver Humperdink who has not been in the best of health.
