If anyone’s worried about zombies disappearing from the general pop culture space in the foreseeable future, you can put those fears to rest. In addition to the popularity of AMC’s The Walking Dead and the promise of its upcoming sister series Cobalt, soon we’ll see new Australian action/horror flick WYRMWOOD: ROAD OF THE DEAD terrorizing us on the big screen.
Described as Mad Max meets Dawn of the Dead, WYRMWOOD takes place in the Australian Outback. ombies invade the Australian Outback in this brain-splattered, 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.
IFC Midnight invites you to join the unholiest battle against the undead with a brand new trailer:
