There have been a flood of zombie movies released over the past few years, making it hard for one movie to really stand out, but ‘Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead’ does just that. Writer-director Klah Roache-Turner’s Australian film has already accomplished what most horror films can’t, a world-wide following. The film stars Jay Gallagher (War Games), Bianca Bradly (This Woman’s World), Damian Dyke,Keith Agius, Berynn Schwerdt, Cain Thompson, Leon Burchill and Sherida Harbridge .
‘Wyrmwood’ follows a man (Gallagher) who had to make the heart-breaking decision to put down his wife and daughter after an asteroid triggers a zombie apocalypse. Along the way Gallagher’s character Barry, teams up with a group of survivors. Barry’s sister Brooke (Bradey), is taken by a military group and handed off to a psychotic doctor who is performing experiments on both zombies and people. After a series of shots, Brooke develops the power to control zombies telepathically. Brooke is as badass as she is beautiful and she’s out for blood.
‘Wymrwood’ brings something new to the zombie genre. It combines horror, gore, humor and action to create a great viewing experience. Netflix customers will be happy to learn that ‘Wyrmwood’ is available on their streaming service, where it hit number one last night. You can also find ‘Wyrmwood’ on most movie websites and in most stores.
There is good news for fans of ‘Wyrmwood’. There is already a sequel in the works, but little has been revealed for it up to this point, except that Bianca Bradey and Jay Gallager are both expected to return for their roles.
