The Calamari Wrestler


With all the talk about the live footage of a real giant squid, I went digging to find some other footage of the famed sea creature. My search was not in vain. I came across the above first 5 minutes to the movie called The Calamari Wrestler. I believe I heard of this movie but dismissed it because it just sounded so far out there that if I watched it, I would never come back.

Now that I have seen the first five minutes, I must find this movie!

The Calamari Wrestler came out in 2004. Below is the movie synopsis:

The plot revolves around a professional wrestler who, after developing a terminal illness, becomes a giant squid-like creature. As a giant squid, he must battle to reclaim his former life both inside and outside the ring.

Yep, that is it in a nutshell. The guy came down with a terminal illness and it changed him into a giant squid. Now as the squid, he must win back his title. If I was a gambling man, I would have just bet all my sanity points and run out into the street naked and screaming. (A sight you never want to see due to further insanity it will induce.)

Live long Calamari Wrestler! Live long!
