‘A hellish, blood-soaked thrill ride’


Cinema Australia

‘A sweaty-toothed madman of a film, cranked full tilt and grinning crazily…a lean slice of prime Aussie meat…sizzling with spectacular action and anarchic glee’


It’s time to take a hellish, high-octane return to the Aussie outback for some outlandish, blood-oozing rampaging zombie action in Wyrmwood: Apocalypse, the highly anticipated sequel to cult-classic Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead.

Australian brothers Kiah and Tristan Roache-Turner have penned another gut-splattering sensation with this fantastically frenzied feature, which is set to thrill UK audiences – and sate horror fans’ thirst for bloody-bedlam – on its UK premiere at FrightFest Glasgow 2022 on 11 March and will follow on Blu-ray and digital from 101 Films.

In a zombie infested Australian wasteland, hard-edged soldier Rhys (Luke McKenzieJack Irish) – who uses zombies as fuel for his barbie – dedicates his days to tracking down and capturing survivors of the Zombie apocalypse for the Surgeon (Nicholas BoshierThe Moth Effect) in hope of finding a cure for the zombie plague. But all is not as it seems, and Rhys’ moralistic misadventures are much more macabre than he knows…

After a wild and twisted sequence of events, Rhys joins forces with Maxi (Shantae Barnes-Cowan Total Control) with brother and sister-duo Brooke (Bianca Brady Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead) and Barry (Jay Gallagher Nekrotronic) in a race against the clock to save the one person who could be the key to ending the apocalypse…

This playfully deranged zombie-action thrill-ride will leave audiences with little time to catch their breath, but plenty of time to savour the spectacle.

Wyrmwood: Apocalypse is gory good fun at its most explosive.
