In Wyrmwood, horror fans are treated to an Australian twist on the zombie apocalypse. Jay Gallagher stars as Barry, a mechanic with a grim determination to save his loved ones in the midst of a mysterious epidemic that's turning people into zombies. Alongside his sister Brooke (played by Bianca Bradey) and a small band of survivors, Barry must fight his way through an increasingly treacherous landscape in order to find safety and answers.

One of the most visually striking aspects of Wyrmwood is the unique way in which the zombies are depicted. Rather than the slow, shambling undead that have become so ubiquitous in pop culture, these zombies are fast, frenzied, and possessed of strange new abilities. The result is a film that often feels more like an action movie than a horror flick, with high-octane shootouts and heart-pounding car chases that keep the stakes high.

But while the action sequences are certainly a highlight, what really sets Wyrmwood apart is its commitment to character development. The relationship between Barry and Brooke is a standout, as the two siblings face down unimaginable horrors while trying to keep each other alive. There's also a memorable subplot involving Benny (played by Leon Burchill), a lovable goofball who becomes unexpectedly adept at zombie-killing. These characters, along with a few others, are really what elevate Wyrmwood above the typical zombie flick and make it worth watching even for those who aren't fans of the genre.

Of course, that's not to say that Wyrmwood isn't filled with plenty of gore and scares. From exploding zombie heads to grotesque mutations, the film doesn't shy away from the gruesome aspects of its premise. But even here, there's a sense of playfulness that keeps the carnage from feeling too gratuitous. The gore is always in service of the story and the characters, rather than just being there for shock value.

One interesting aspect of Wyrmwood is the way it explores the science behind the zombie outbreak. While the specifics are deliberately vague, the film suggests that the zombies are connected to a strange cloud of gas that's been released into the air. This provides a more scientific explanation for the zombies than many other films in the genre, and allows for some intriguing plot twists and revelations.

Overall, Wyrmwood is a fun and entertaining addition to the zombie canon. Its unique take on the genre, memorable characters, and thrilling action all make for a movie that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats. Fans of horror and action alike should definitely check it out.

Wyrmwood is a 2015 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 38 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.2 and a MetaScore of 54.
