Plot: Zombies invade the Australian Outback in this brain-splattered, Mad Max-meets-the-undead thrill ride. When an apocalyptic event turns everyone around him – including his wife and daughter – into marauding zombies, “every man” mechanic Barry arms himself to the teeth, soups up his car, and hits the road in order to rescue his sister from a deranged, disco-dancing mad doctor. Bursting with high-octane car chases, crazy-cool homemade weaponry, and enough blood, guts, and gore to satisfy hardcore horror fans, WYRMWOOD: ROAD OF THE DEAD takes the zombie flick to bone-crunchingly berserk new heights.
Starring: Jay Gallagher, Bianca Bradey, Leon Burchill, Luke McKenzie, Yure Covich, Catherine Terracini, Keith Agius, Meganne West
Directed by: Kiah Roache-Turner
Thoughts: Zombie movies are a dime a dozen. However, Wyrmwood offers a humorous and gritty spin to the normal end of times shtick. What happens when Aussies fight the living dead? Well they sure as hell don’t hide in malls. Instead, they engage in a whole lot of ass kicking, beer drinking, and Mad Max style chaos. Opening in select US theaters on February 13th – Wyrmwood looks to be right up our alley. Stay tuned for a full review!
