Twisted, fast-moving, brutal and bloody.

A group of heavily armoured folk pounce from a vehicle into the path of a group of marauding zombies. The first line of dialogue we hear is, "Come on, you f***ing dummy!" And then, bedlam. A plethora of gunfire, cascading streams of blood, a dash of gore, and many of the walking-dead become quite simply, dead-dead. It isn't a bad start, and lets you know exactly what film experience you are in for.

Sometimes it's good to sit back and watch a group of muscle-brained heroes blowing bloody chunks out of a relentless horde of zombies. Except this Australian rollercoaster has an eccentricity that makes it a richer experience than that. There is a thin vein of black humour running through, not entirely unreminiscent of Peter Jackson's 1992 'Braindead'. Here, the grotesque comedy doesn't get as much of a hold and we are left with a desperate chase through a country suddenly teeming with gas-breathing living cadavers that enjoys moments of madness.

If you are in the mood for this, it delivers in spades. If not, it might come across as a group of characters whose dialogue consists of 'what the f*** is this,' and 'what the f*** is that?' The occasionally unconventional plot concerns Brooke (Bianca Bradley) who narrowly escapes being devoured by a group of newly formed zombies before being 'rescued' by a military group that takes her for experimentation every bit as deadly as her original predicament. Her brother Barry (Jay Gallagher), who has recently ended the lives of his zombie wife and daughter, teams up with a handful of similarly scarred characters, and proceeds to find Brooke and shoot as many marauding, slavering, dead-eyed 'infected' as possible.

'Wyrmwood' is twisted, fast-moving, brutal, bloody and the effects are very convincing. And it's an enjoyable rollercoaster.

That's not me brother

Meteors apparently crash into the earth (the star Wormwood from Revelation?) and thus we have the zombie apocalypse taking place in Australia. That is pretty much it. A group battle against them in a rural area and find out the military is not their friend either. A twist happens where petroleum based products are no longer flammable and zombie blood must be used as fuel. BTW Bianca Bradley has A negative blood, a major plot point.

Good zombie action. Lots of heads being blown off. I wish the characters had been a little more quirky and some better dialogue.

Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity. PLOT SPOILER Bianca Bradey and Jay Gallagher survive for the sequel.

Turning zombies into red mush is this movie's business, and business is good.

This ultra low budget zombie apocalypse actioner manages to both look far more expensive than it is and actually be watchable. Other so called "cult classics" do not have the entertainment value that is credited to them. This one does. It is relentlessly past faced, action filled, and for something so cheap and down and dirty is decently acted. Still, I almost wish the makers of this movie had tried harder to get a bigger budget at their disposal, as some set pieces are clearly lower rent versions of what could have been with a bit more cash in the wallet. This is not the kind of movie that needs a 10 page analysis, it sets out to deliver zombie killing carnage, and it succeeds. It does not pretend to be anything other than what it is and is the quintessential beer and pizza friday night flick on a big tv with very loud speakers. You had me at dudes with hockey mask and pads with sawn off double barrelled shotguns Wyrmwood.
