Hell Comes To Frogtown (1988)

Hell Comes To Frogtown

Hell Comes To Frogtown is certainly the weirdest film on our list.

Piper plays Sam Hell, one of the last fertile men on earth following a nuclear war that has left most of the humans infertile.

He’s tracked down by a group of fertile nurses who follow the trail of pregnant women who’ve met him.

He then has to rescue a group of young fertile women who have been captured by anthropomorphic lizard creatures.

It falls into the “It’s so bad it’s good” category and is a genuine classic.

The Running Man (1987)

Jesse Ventura Running Man

The Running Man is one of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s most classic films and is filled with brilliant one-liners and memorable characters.

It makes sense that he would come across some wrestlers as he fights his way to freedom and who better to face off against that Jesse “The Body” Ventura.

The Body plays the undefeated Captain Freedom, the most loved of The Running Man’s many executioners.

As well as Jesse Ventura, the Running Man also stars WWF legend Professor Toru Tonaka as Sub Zero.

If you’re looking for wrestling royalty, it’s right here.

Runaway Train (1985)

Runaway Train

Runaway Train stars John Voight and Eric Roberts who find themselves on board a runaway train after escaping prison.

This is a brilliant film which is full of suspense and drama that’ll keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end.

There is also a notable appearance from WWF and WCW legend Zeus in one of his first acting roles as the train guard.

He casts an intimidating presence even in such a small role and that presence would earn him plenty more screen time in the years to come.
