Wyrmwood Review


A talented mechanic prepares to battle his way through hordes of flesh-eating monsters after his sister is kidnapped on the eve of a zombie apocalypse.

Wyrmwood (2014) is a 2014 independent zombie action horror movie that is also known as Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead (2014) in Australia. The movie is 98 minutes long and was filmed in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Director, editor, producer and co-writer Kiah Roache-Turner (War Games (2009), Roadrunner (2008)) has great potential in the movie industry.

Wyrmwood follows mechanic Barry (Jay Gallagher - To Become One (2002), War Games (2009), Roadrunner (2008)) while he is being bombarded with zombie hordes. Barry is a regular joe mechanic that works during the day and is home in the evening with his family in the Australian outback. Barry was informed of the zombie attack by his sister Brooke (Bianca Bradey - This Woman’s World (2009), Starting From… Now (2014)) who called to warn him of the attacks. The majority of people on Earth are turning into zombies after a meteor shower struck Earth. The few people that survive has to kill the ones they love. Barry was at work during the outbreak, and he rushed home but was too late. He had to kill his wife Annie (Catherine Terracini) and his daughter Meganne (Meganne West - Breathless (2010), Enter the Hamster (2011), In the Woods (2010)) before they turn into zombies. Barry felt as though he has lost everything except for his sister Brooke until a gang kidnapped her. She is taken to a medical lab that runs a series of experiments on survivors. Watch this terrific movie to see how Barry tries to/saves his sister’s life.

This movie is a must see for those that have an open mind when watching a movie. You will find yourself asking a lot of “what if’s”, but if you can get past that then you will enjoy this movie. The shaky cam action gave me a headache so therefore I will not see this movie again. The actors, sets, lighting effects, cinematographer and music were all really good.
