‘Wyrmwood: Apocalypse’ Brings Zombies To The States In May

Kangaroos, shrimp on the barbie and now…zombies.

Late last year, Horror News Network reported that WyrmwoodApocalypse–the Australian zombie sequel to 2014’s WyrmwoodRoad of the Dead–was almost ready to hit our shores, and this week it was learned that the horror flick will come to DVD and Blu-ray May 17, according to a report on JoBlo.com.

The sequel–from XYZ Films–is directed by Kiah Roache-Turner from a screenplay he wrote with his brother Tristan. The movie, the director said, is “bigger, bolder and pumping with zombies, car chases, explosions and a giant cyborg.” He added the sequel is what he wanted to make eight years ago, “but we didn’t have the money.”

The film follows a soldier named Rhys, who is stuck in a “zombie-infested Australian wasteland,” according to the logline. Rhys “has dedicated himself to tracking down and capturing survivors for the Surgeon General in hopes of finding a cure.”

Along the way, Rhys teams up with “a group of super-powered survivors to save a young woman from death by military experimentation.”

The film stars Luke McKenzie, Shantae Barnes-Cowan, Tasia Zalar, Jake Ryan, Nicholas Boshier, Jay Gallagher and Bianca Bradley.

Should the sequel go over well with audiences, a third film maybe in the offing. “I’m already writing it in my head,” Roache-Turner said. “We’d be crazy not to repeat this as soon as possible.”
