    Awesome movie! Yes another zombie genre movie, seems as this following is still going strong! This one is a bit outside the box of the typical movie and it is not quite what you might expect. It has lots of gore, blood, and guts for those that love this kind of thing. It also however has humor which is placed in very inappropriate places, however, assuming that it is the end of the world for these people nothing is out of place or inappropriate in this case. Also there are bits in the movie that are sad as well and remain human without a world of zombies. There is a female heroine in this one and this makes it for one quite interesting plot turn. A type of necromancer or magician, she is, created by an experiment gone wrong or in this case right. So does this have merit and have a happy ending you ask? Yes it is worth seeing due to it being different. No, no happy endings where zombies and the apocalypse are concerned, only something that could be said as surviving middle ground, however watch the movie and make your own conclusions. :)

    For those of you who enjoy a good zombie flick with a bit of subtle humor thrown in, you will undoubtedly like this film. The only thing I can really compare it to is Sean of the Dead, as the action is full on action movie stuff, yet its infused with an underlying sense of humor. There's not a whole lot else out there that fits into that category. It takes place in Aussie Land and pays homage to Mad Max in various ways. It's not the Walking Dead, so don't look for deep character driven drama here, but if you are looking for a great popcorn zombie flick whose main purpose is to entertain, then you can't go wrong here. I watch just about every new "Zombie Apocalypse" type film that comes out, and I have to say this one sticks out of the oversaturated pack by being just a little bit different...but in a refreshing way. highly recommended for fans of the genre.

    This is a spectacular zombie action movie from Australia which bears little resemblance to "Mad Max" or "Dawn of the Dead". Having seen most of the low budget zombie movies of recent years, I can say this is the best to come along in some time. The action is in your face non-stop from the opening credits, the humor is intelligent, and the special affects and acting are excellent. There are even a couple of "didn't see that coming" moments which are also quite well done. This never distracts with low budget anything, it's just a fun ride form start to finish. View the "Wyrmdiaries" special feature and you'll probably agree this is low budget film making at it's best. Zombie fans will dig this one!

    Wow! just Wow! What a movie! I loved it. I sat down to watch this film not knowing anything except that it has been gathering alot of awesome reviews and I love the genre so I figured I would give it a shot. I have to say that this is one film that just blew my mind due to the sheer craziness of it all plus the fact that it does not let up at all. Gory funny and just unique it really deserves to be seen. I hope it does well so the filmmakers can do a sequel as it really deserves one. It is now one of my favorites and I am picky when It comes to horror movies. Plus bluray is great especially 7.1 sound unreal power and bass Great movie get it and enjoy the ride.

    A Decent Zombie Movie Worth Watching!

    It's not Dawn of the Dead but it is a great little title. I didn't think much about it at first but it is definitely a little gem of a movie. Certain aspects of it feel a bit cliche but there are more interesting, original moments that bring this Australian horror movie to the forefront. I would include more in this review but I'm not into spoiling things. All I can say is...pick it up. It's worth it.

    I bought this movie on a whim since it was so cheap and had decent reviews and I can't say that I'm disappointed. You can tell the movie is more of a 'b' movie, but it is leagues better than most of the straight to DVD and scifi channel originals garbage. The movie definitely has a pretty unique story and lots of action and gore. The Mad Max meets Dawn of the Dead tagline does not lie.

    High-Octane Frenetic Action, Great Blu-Ray Disc

    Mad Max meets Dawn of the Dead (or perhaps more appropriately, Shaun of the Dead). The movie is very visually high-energy and stylish, which might turn off some viewers who don't like too many color filtered shots, quick cuts and whip pans in their movies, but if you like this kind of thing, it's a great ride. Great blu-ray disc to go along with the movie, as well.

    Blu-ray review of Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead

    The film is a ton of fun and provides more than enough head exploding action to satisfy most zombie fans. Visually arresting though probably a bit overstuffed stylistically, Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead boasts excellent audio and video merits and a good supplementary package.
