Even though the trailer for Wyrmwood: Chronicles of the Dead dropped in mid May, with thanks to the wonders of social media, it has only just now made its way to me and this 6-odd minute trailer is so intense, insane, erratic, gory and in-your-bloody-face, I immediately had to know more.
First off though, check out the *teaser* trailer which is very NSFW!
Wyrmwood: Chronicles of the Dead comes off the back of an indie 2014/15 Aussie movie Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead by director Kiah Rouche-Turner. It’s a sort of Fury Road meets Resident Evil meets The Girl with all the Gifts kind of movie that follows a mechanic named Barry (Jay Gallagher) who is trying to find his kidnapped sister Brooke (Bianca Bradey) as the world is falling to pieces amid a massive zombie apocalypse.
The film itself received generally positive reviews and feedback and upon it’s limited US release found itself at the mercy of online piracy where it topped illegal downloading charts.
Jump to 2017, Chronicles of the dead series will pick up from where Road of the Dead leaves off with a 10 episode series filled with over-the-top carnage, explosions and oh so many zombies!
