Mad Max meets The Walking Dead in WYRMWOOD APOCALYPSE, the sequel to the 2014 the Aussie zombie comedy WYRMWOOD : ROAD OF THE DEAD, which comes to Disc and Digital May 13th from 101 Films.
Set in the Australian outback, several years after the apocalyptic events of the previous film, a lone soldier, Rhys (Luke McKenzie – TV's Wentworth Prison, Home and Away), has been rounding up survivors in the zombie infected wastelands and handing over them to a small military unit at a remote bunker.
Their chief scientist, The Surgeon General (Nicholas Boshier – TV's The Moth Effect) has been using them to try and find a cure for the zombie virus. But when Rhys discovers the extremely unethical experiments the Surgeon has really been carrying out, he decides he wants no further part in his plans, resulting in near fatal consequences for himself .
Hooking up with a group of survivors, which happens to include the characters from the previous film, Barry and Brooke (Jay Gallagher and Bianca Bradley reprising their earlier roles) they set out to stop the antics of this rogue military outfit before they all end up on the Surgeon General's slab.
Boasting some good gory effects, this was a really fun zombie film, equally as good as the first. Though you don't actually have to see the first film in order to watch this, being pretty much a self contained story. But if you haven't seen it, you should definitely check it out, along with this.
If you liked the TV show Z-Nation, you'll defiantly love this as it features the same sort of slapstick humour.
The Blu-Ray copy I was sent did not contain any supplemental material.
