GFF Review – Wyrmwood Apocalypse

Maybe it’s the prevalence of shopping centres, but there’s something about the concept of zombies which takes a bit out of culture and just won’t let go. Since Victor Halperin’s White Zombie was released back in 1932, the undead hordes have gradually come to dominate genre TV and cinema. The likes of The Walking Dead, Train to Busan, Zombieland or World War Z have helped make these reanimated creatures a big draw. Wyrmwood: Apocalypse adds a uniquely Australian twist.

Australia is infested by zombies. They’re everywhere. Rhys (Luke McKenzie), a no-nonsense soldier, spends his days tracking down the infected and delivering them to the Surgeon (Nicholas Boshier) who lives in the bunker. Using them as bespoke sources of power for his car. He’s been told that this task is vital to help find a cure for this virus. However, when old advisories turn up, he begins to suspect something nefarious is going on.

Wyrmwood: Apocalypse is a gnarly Aussie zombie flick which doesn’t stand on ceremony or take any prisoners. Following on from where the first film (Road of the Dead) left off, there are some familiar characters who appear along the way.  Kiah and Tristan Roache-Turner’s maniacal film moves the story on, but by its nature is less creative. It still has the same rugged personality though. Wyrmwood: Apocalypse is the outback outbreak sequel you never knew you wanted.

Wyrmwood: Apocalypse screens at Glasgow Film Festival and will follow on Blu-ray and digital from 101 Films.
