Wyrmwood: Road of The Dead is not only one of the greatest zombie movies of all time, it is also one of the greatest directorial debuts I have ever seen (the director’s name is Kiah Roache-Turner) as the film handles zombies with lots of original and unique ideas, and contains a good amount of high production values that prove that this movie is made by a talented film maker who truly cared about making an awesome film.
For a directorial debut with a budget of only $160,000, the special effects (specifically the zombie make-up and blood) are of professional quality as the zombies look very real with a good amount of detail put into them, and the blood doesn’t look fake. I also want to mention how this movie has a huge amount of head shots I’ve ever seen in any movie.
The writing in Wyrmwood: Road of The Dead is solid as the script that’s made for it contains the elements of good characterization, great acting from the entire cast, and a lot of mystery as to why the Zombie plague happened in the movie without it being predictable.
The movie’s music by Michael Lira is very outstanding to listen to because it fits well with the movie’s dark and gritty tone.
A very important thing that I want to explain about this film is that because it’s a zombie movie with a lot of blood and gore and head shots, the film can only be recommended to anyone that is 18 years or older of age.
Wyrmwood: Road of The Dead is a film in the zombie genre that adds brand new and interesting ideas that work well, and is sure to entertain any horror movie fan thanks to how brilliantly made it is.
I give Wyrmwood: Road of The Dead 5/5 Stars, and Two Thumbs Up.
