Movie Info

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.(C) IFC Midnight

You could do far worse for a boozy Friday night out.

May 5, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The Roache-Turners prove to have the right mix of micro-budget filmmaking ingenuity, action sass and undead splatter to make "Wyrmwood" a tastier than usual exploitation nosh.

While featuring mucho mayhem, Wyrmwood also takes refreshing liberties with the walking-corpse playbook.

February 23, 2015 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

There's a streamlined simplicity to "Wyrmwood" that's admirable in an era when too many horror movies get cluttered with subplots and characters who wander into frame merely to be turned into goo.

February 13, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Ambulant corpses may be tramping all over our movie and television screens these days, but "Wyrmwood" has enough novelty - and more than enough energy - to best its minuscule budget.

February 12, 2015 | Full Review…

A feeling of foreboding sets in early in Kiah Roache-Turner's zombie-apocalypse thriller Wyrmwood: Road Of The Dead. Unfortunately, it has nothing to do with the hellish subject matter and everything to do with the direction.

Audience Reviews for WYRMWOOD: Road Of The Dead

A self-aware B rate horror film. This movie hits all the guilty pleasures of a bad 80s horror flick with aplomb. Senseless plot? Check. Cringe worthy acting? Check. Bizarre senseless violence? Absolutely. It is hard making a painfully bad movie that slips into a cult favorite spectacle of baddie goodness. Wyrmwood does a good job of capturing that magic. Outside of mastering an arc-type rather well, Wyrmwood provides a few fun novel twists on the zombie apocalypse scenario. The usual zombie carnage and violence is present, but with a couple of interesting new twists that keep the film fresh. There really is no point to it or grand conclusion. It is really just a good old fashioned ride into the absurd. Interestingly, a lot of good films in this vein are coming out of Australia and New Zealand recently. I am not sure why, but it is a welcome trend as the American mainstream has largely lost the art.

Alright. Starts off pretty well, but honestly this film just gets confusing as hell. A lot of things aren't explained particularly well, which really hurts this film. Plus the acting is honestly pretty bad. The action is decent however, so there's that.

apart from some crazy characters the film doesn't bring any game changing ideas which an indie film should. much better than other zombie features
