WYRMWOOD is a unique and refreshing take within the horror sub-genre.
The story follows Barry, who loses his wife and daughter to the population that has turned into flesh eating, crazed monsters.
After he is forced to off his wife and daughter, he hooks up with a rag tag crew to help him find his sister, Brooke, and what has caused this particular outbreak.
Brooke has been captured by what appears to be the government, who are experimenting on zombies and humans alike; she becomes a guinea pig in the experiments. Humans with a specific blood type are immune to whatever illness is going on. Brooke, having this blood-type, is being subjected to injections with blood from the zombies. After a few injections she is able to control the minds of these undead freaks and uses them to her advantage to escape.
Writer/Director Kiah Roache-Turner does a great job bringing a fresh take to the “getting tired” zombie films. With his fun and outrageous characters, interesting and fresh subplots this is certainly one of the recent zombie films that was actually able to hold my interest.
The gore is aplenty and at times over the top, which works extremely well with the overall tone of the film. The cast is badass in every aspect and creates a outrageous chemistry between characters that normally wouldn’t team up, it pushes beyond the normal character stereotypes in the horror genre and is one of the reasons it works so well.
Overall, this is a must see for any zombie fan, or former zombie fans that have gotten tired of the over saturation of zombie films (thanks The Walking Dead).
