      Nicolas Soto But Why Tho? A Geek Community At its core, the film is about a wrestler and a family man who talks about his journey up to now. There’s something special about how personal [Nail in the Coffin] was since nothing was held back. Rated: 9.5/10 Jan 22, 2023 Full Review Erick Estrada Cinegarage Nail in the Coffin captures the spirit of one of the best wrestlers in the history of Mexico by putting the spotlight on him and instead of disintegrating, Vampire pervades our memories. [Full review in Spanish] Jul 13, 2022 Full Review Catherine Gonzales Shuffle Online "Where "Nail in the Coffin: The Fall and Rise of Vampiro" really shines is not talking of years past, but in the present, where a father just wants to be home with his daughter playing Playstation." Feb 11, 2022 Full Review Alix Turner Ready Steady Cut A documentary about the life and career of Ian Hodgkinson, known as Vampiro in Mexican professional wrestling. Eye-opening and intimate, but too tragic at heart to sell the viewer the sport. Rated: 3.5/5 Feb 13, 2021 Full Review Andrew Parker The Gate Will appeal first and foremost to fans of professional wrestling, and all involved with director Michael Paszt's first feature are perfectly at ease with that. Rated: 6/10 Oct 8, 2020 Full Review Stephen Silver Living Life Fearless Another fine pro wrestling documentary, produced outside of the umbrella of WWE.

      Audience Member I was living in México City when the man featured in the documentary was at the height of his fame, not only as a wrestler but also as a nightlife fixture and a mainstream celebrity. It now seems odd that he might not have been as well-known internationally, but this was in the pre-internet days. I only recently became aware of this documentary, which is unquestionably violent (I averted my eyes more than once), but also tremendously touching and strangely relatable for anyone who makes sacrifices in order to be a the best parent possible. The rock and roll/punk rock vibe in the wrestling scenes is a stark contrast to other scenes featuring a sleepy Canadian town, and this adds to the documentary's appeal. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a great documentary! Well worth watching! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member If youve ever been a fan of wrestling. Watch this movie. It sheds so much light on not just his career but the bts things we never see. Quite a few tear jerker moments too Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review dave d Wandering and as unfocused as the protagonist, Nail in the Coffin: The Fall and Rise of Vampiro is too cumbersome. I had high hopes for this growing up a wrestling fan, but it's all over the place. There were a couple obstacles for the fall of Vampiro, but it didn't seem too big a deal. They weren't major obstacles. Usually they would be talked up, not played down. If you did a profile of every wrestler in their 50s this is what you get. The problem is Vampiro, AKA Ian Hodgkinson, who also served as an executive producer, has an amazing backstory. He's a Canadian who made millions wrestling in Mexico with no wrestling experience. Think about that. It seems like the documentarian spent a few days with the subject, but didn't think that the different looks of Vampiro might confuse people. Sometimes he had longer hair and looked much younger. Other times he had short hair. Maybe it could have been explained. Maybe they were shot years apart. Either way this one needs another pass and it's a shame. Final Score: 5/10 Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member I happened to see this was on Prime over New Year's weekend and what a nice surprise this turned out to be. I had long forgotten about Vampiro (Ian) as I personally haven't been into wrestling since the late 90's & the days of the Monday Night Wars. Here's a really good guy who has done so much at a young age, stopped the bad habits early, is focused on being a great father, etc... and concurrently has become so jaded at the life he chose and the choices he still makes. There's no miraculous recovery from broken bones and 25 concussions so I really hope he can just focus on his daughter, just the business and being happy. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/04/21 Full Review Audience Member A must watch for any wrestling fan. The documentary does a great job at documenting the situation Vampiro found himself in a few years ago with trying to provide and be a single father to a teenager while working in an industry he has grown to hate while having failing health.
