Sometimes you just want to sit down, forget all of life’s intellectual responsibilities, and watch a gory zombie movie that doesn’t try too hard to be something it’s not. Enter Wyrmwood: Apocalypse.
The upcoming gorefest just released a brand new trailer today in which we see the vulgar, bloody fun that we’ve come to love from the original 2014 Wyrmwood film.
In this sequel, a soldier named Rhys, who tracks down zombie apocalypse survivors for a living, is tasked with helping a woman find her lost daughter who holds the key to curing the zombie virus. But none of that really matters because you’re watching this film for the head splatters, right?
Aside from the gore (oh yeah, and the plot), this trailer shows off some impressive post-apocalyptic outfits, non-stop action, and Mad-Max-style cars that look like they’re straight out of Wasteland Weekend. Oh yes, the cars.
The Australian film has already earned attention from critics, securing a spot as official selection at the Sydney Film Festival, Brisbane International Film Festival, SciFi Film Festival, and Monster Fest 2021.
Cinema Australia calls it a “Hellish blood-soaked thrill ride” while Film Ink says that the movie is “Sizzling with spectacular action and anarchic glee.” Now those are some accolades!
The movie is written and directed by the Roache-Turner brothers who made the first film and it stars Shantae Barnes-Cowan, Nicholas Boshier, Bianca Bradey, and Luke McKenzie as Rhys.
Wyrmwood: Apocalypse releases in Australian theaters on February 10, 2022.
