It’s been a long road for Aussie filmmaking/producing duo, brothers writer/director Kiah and co-writer Tristan Roache-Turner, but now their long-awaited zombie apocalypse thrill ride is ready to make a splash on the big screen for Wyrmwood: Road Of The Dead.
In the aftermath of a comet breaking up over the Earth, most of the planet’s population quickly succumb to a strange disease which turns them into ‘zombies’. Few survive, and those who do quickly discover all existing fuel sources have been rendered unusable by the plague. Trapped in a wilderness filled with living dead, unable to travel to any safer location, survivors have little to live for. One of those survivors, family man Barry has lost everything except his sister Brooke. But even as the disaster unfolds, Brooke is kidnapped by a gang of paramilitary thugs and dragged off to a horrific medical lab run by a psychotic ‘doctor’ who is performing a series of deranged experiments on plague survivors.
Jay Gallagher, Bianca Bradey, Leon Burchill, Luke McKenzie and Berynn Schwerdt star. The film releases in Australia on February 6 prior to its U.S. release a week later.
