A biblically-foretold falling star (the Wyrmwood of the title) leads to an zombie apocalypse on Earth, turning all but those with A negative blood into the walking dead. When Aussie mechanic Barry’s wife and child fall victim to the zombie “virus” he seeks out the only other member of his family, his sister Brooke – who, after surviving a zombie attack, is abducted by a sinister team of gas-masked soldiers and experimented on by a mad military scientist. Teaming up with a handful of other survivors, Barry heads across the outback in a truck powered only by zombie blood, to track down his sister and kick plenty of zombie ass along the way!

Busan Film Review: ‘Wyrmwood’

Busan Film Review: ‘Wyrmwood’
The idea that a human could become a kind of “zombie whisperer” is one of the bright new touches that “Wyrmwood” brings to the familiar scenario of survivors attempting to stay alive during an apocalyptic rampage by the undead. Armed with “Mad Max”-like design elements and a good sense of humor, this energetically executed bloodbath marks a promising feature bow for Australian brothers Kiah and Tristan Roache-Turner.

Domestic release details are yet to be announced.

The latest in a growing list of Aussie siblings to emerge with nifty little horror-movie debuts (following Michael and Peter Spierig with “Undead” in 2003, and Colin and Cameron Cairnes with “100 Bloody Acres” in 2012), the Roache-Turners
