About 'Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead'

“Wyrm­wood: Road of the Dead” is a 2014 Aus­tralian zombie action film written and dir­ected by brothers Kiah and Tristan Roache-Turner. The film is set in a post-apo­ca­lyptic world where a mys­ter­ious plague is turning humans into bloodthirsty zom­bies. The story focuses on two main char­ac­ters, mech­anic Barry and his brother Benny, as they struggle to sur­vive in an undead overrun Aus­tralia.

The film stands out for its mix of zom­bies, action and a dash of black humour. One of the film’s madcap ideas is the fact that petrol has an explosive effect on the zom­bies. Barry and his allies dis­cover that the blood of the undead can be used as fuel for vehicles. They devise a way to siphon off the zom­bies’ blood and use it to power their own vehicles. This absurd idea leads to some spec­tac­ular and action-packed scenes where the heroes use their zombie blood-powered vehicles to defend them­selves against the undead menace.

Another crazy idea in the film is the intro­duc­tion of “zombie tele­pathy”. Barry dis­covers that he has some kind of mental link to his kid­napped sister Brooke, who is being held cap­tive by a group of unscru­pu­lous sci­ent­ists. These sci­ent­ists are exper­i­menting with the zom­bies to create some kind of super-weapon. Barry can con­trol the zom­bies through his mind and uses this ability to save his sister and fight the sci­ent­ists. This psychic ability adds an extra dimen­sion to the film and sets it apart from other typ­ical zombie films.
