It’s "Mad Max" meets "Dawn of the Dead" as the apocalypse goes down under in the year’s darkest, most hilarious zombie splatter-fest - “Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead” in UK cinemas 8th May and on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital HD 11th May.
A post-apocalyptic zombie invasion turns personal for Aussie mechanic Barry (Jay Gallagher) when a team of sinister gas-masked soldiers abducts his sister Brooke (Bianca Bradey) for a mad scientist’s flesh-eating experiments.
Teaming up with fellow apocalypse survivor Benny (Leon Burchill), Barry must lock and load to battle through the undead and save Brooke!
“Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead” is a blistering feature debut from the brother writing team of Kiah and Tristan Roache-Turner, who have created a world that not only puts original, innovative twists on zombie lore, but also mashes up elements from horror and post-apocalyptic science fiction - all set against a retina-burning Australian landscape, with Mad Max-influenced design and a splattering of inspiration from Peter Jackson’s "Bad Taste" and "Braindead".
It is also a triumph of DIY horror, held together by glue, gaffer tape and a pure love of gore. Produced over four years - and exceeding the brothers’ original budget by $130,000 - the props and costumes were made by Tristan and his friends, while the crew doubled up as zombies.
“Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead” is released to selected UK cinemas 8th May. Then is released to UK DVD, Blu-ray and VOD 11th May.
