Another zombie movie this week. Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead has been sitting in my Netflix queue for nearly a year and I’m sorry I didn’t watch it sooner. Here’s what it’s about:
“Barry is a talented mechanic and family man whose life is torn apart on the eve of a zombie apocalypse. His sister, Brooke, is kidnapped by a sinister team of gas-mask wearing soldiers & experimented on by a psychotic doctor. While Brooke plans her escape Barry goes out on the road to find her & teams up with Benny, a fellow survivor – together they must arm themselves and prepare to battle their way through hordes of flesh-eating monsters in a harsh Australian bushland.”
I’d first like to say zombies + Australians = KICK ASS. Add in DO NOT MISS THIS MOVIE in all caps and I could leave it at that. But I enjoyed this movie so much that I have to tell you all the things I loved about it.
- Freaky mad scientist who works while listening to KC and the Sunshine Band
- Crazy macho outback zombie fighters dressed like The Preditor
- Insanely dangerous zombies with flammable blood
- Blood and gore and blood and gore and more blood and gore
Not since the Dead Snow movies have I enjoyed a zombie movie so much. This movie has everything and more. Great characters, decent acting, and best of all ingenuity. The independent movie industry is saturated with zombie movies, and this one stands out among them all. I’m even guessing the zombie lab will be duplicated in at least one Halloween house of horrors.
My Rating: 5 out of 5 Bloody Brains
Please leave zombie movie suggestions in the comments.
I prefer movies rated below a 4 on IMDB.
