Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead

Zombies have overrun the bush in this Australian horror-comedy

Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead film plays at the Hollywood Thater

Not seeing enough zombies? Can't wait for this summer's Mad Max reboot? This new Australian horror comedy from Kiah Roache-Turner should hold you, as a small band of beer-drinkers armors up to face undead flesh-eaters in the bush. Head shots galore, leavened by some throwaway gags. The faced-paced film does stumble in places — there's a kidnapping/mad-scientist plot that doesn't make sense, and maybe the government is up to no good? — but few people come to zombie cinema for the intricate plots. Wyrmwood does offer plenty of zombie kills, including one with a boomerang, because Australia.
