The former WWE, WCW, ECW and TNA grappler appears in a new movie – The Church, a horror flick written and directed by first-time filmmaker Dom Frank.
“In this thriller, the minister of a once vibrant Baptist church is the sole hold-out in a decaying Philadelphia neighborhood earmarked for gentrification. However, the preacher’s steely resolve to preserve his family’s evangelical legacy in the community and dwindling congregation dissolves under relentless pressure from his status-seeking wife and greedy church leaders, lured by cash bribes and promises from unscrupulous developers to establish a flashy “mega-ministry” elsewhere.
The spirits of congregational members deeply wronged of centuries past – stirred from the disquiet of their graves by the remorseless trespasses of another generation – begin to make their displeasure known. As the sinners, abruptly and inexplicably bound within the confines of the sanctuary, begin to fall prey to unseen and ominous forces, they must all re-examine their choices and bow to the will of the covenant …only to reveal the righteous among them.”
