Epic Pictures has unveiled a trailer, poster and images for Nail in the Coffin: The Fall & Rise of Vampiro, a new documentary which offers a rare glimpse into the legendary career of wrestling icon Vampiro as he grapples with his demons and life after fame; check them out here…
“Nail in the Coffin: The Fall & Rise of Vampiro is an incredibly inspirational true story that shows us no matter how many times life tries to beat you down and break you apart, you need to rise up and conquer your demons in order to survive,” says Patrick Ewald, CEO of Epic Pictures. “And now, as we are faced with incredible challenges all around us, I can’t think of a more relevant film to remind us of the resiliency and power of the human spirit.”
Semi-retired professional wrestler Ian Hodgkinson reveals the harsh realities behind the glamour of being in the world of wrestling as the infamous ‘Vampiro’. A Lucha Libre legend, Hodgkinson tells the astonishing story about his meteoric rise to fame in the 90’s and how it almost killed him. Yet none of that was as back-breaking as his current life – working behind-the-scenes as the Director of Talent for Lucha Libre AAA in Mexico City and Lucha Underground in Los Angeles, while simultaneously raising his teenage daughter Dasha in remote Northern Canada as a single parent.
Nail in the Coffin: The Fall & Rise of Vampiro is set for release in theaters on September 4th, followed by a VOD/Digital release on September 8th.
