Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead

Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead ★★★★★

A kinetic and energized original take at the zombie genre with inventive twists to a number of the genre's tropes. Bianca Bradey makes an impressive turn as Brooke a character that is transformed into something quite promising (yes, looking forward to a sequel). Director Kiah Roache-Turner wears his influences proudly (Sam Raimi, George Miller, etc.) but mixes them together in an fascinating manner. Co-writer Tristan Roache-Turner sprinkles in bizarre twists from solving a minor gas crisis to zombie mind control. Jay Gallagher and Leon Burchill make a fun duo as Barry and Benny as they search for Barry's sister Brooke. Great film.
