IFC Takes Australian Zombie Film Wyrmwood


WyrmwoodOne of the pleasant surprises to come out of Fantastic Fest this year was the imaginative, kinetic Wyrmwood, a down ‘n dirty low budget zombie film that put a lot of style on the screen. You can read my review here.

This Australian action-horror flick is directed by Kiah Roache-Turner who co-penned the script with his brother Tristan. Today, we’re learning the film was picked up by IFC!

When falling stars bring a mysterious plague onto the land, transforming all but a select few into ravenous, bloodthirsty monsters, gruff-but-kind family man Barry is left with no family but his sister Brooke stranded hours away, with hundreds of the ravenous beasts between them. But with nothing left to live for except his sister, Barry’s not going to let anything stand in his way; not the undead and certainly not the military forces who may be even more dangerous than the creatures they’re supposedly protecting people from.

Stay tuned for a release date!
