Zombie movies take a high-octane turn with IFC Midnight’s “Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead.” The film is directed by Kiah Roache-Turner and written by Roache-Turner and Tristan Roache-Turner. The film stars Jay Gallagher, Bianca Bradey, Leon Burchill, Yure Covich, Luke McKenzie, Keith Agius, Catherine Terracini and Meganne West and focuses on survivors in Australia who fight zombies with fast cars, DIY weapons and a lot of zombie-killing.
“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, everyman 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-and-guts gore to satisfy hardcore horror fans, WYRMWOOD: ROAD OF THE DEAD takes the zombie flick to bone-crunchingly berserk new heights.”
