As a zombie movie, Wyrmwood is pretty standard issue for the most part, although it does offer a few unique twists on the typical zombie story that make it fun in a way all its own.
No it's not perfect, and yes it's worth seeing. That's honestly the best way to describe this movie.
|WHO'S GOT THE WRONG BLOOD TYPE? THIS GUY!|
|OH, THEIR PATHS WILL CROSS.|
|WYRMWOOD: THE RISE OF BROOKE SOUNDS LIKE A CATCHY TITLE TO US.|
It was also pretty neat the way that the filmmakers added their own little touches to the zombie sub-genre with this debut effort. We don't want to spoil those twists for you, but let's just say that they both involved blood, and both of them were really clever. In a sub-genre that doesn't usually stray all that far from the norm, it was things like that which made Wyrmwood stand out a bit more. That, and Bianca Bradey wasn't very hard to look at for 90 minutes. We have a thing for tough chicks, what can we say?
|NOTHING GOOD IS GOING TO COME OF THAT.|
We also aren't the biggest fans of the kind of humor found in this movie. The wacky, evil Doctor made us cringe with his try-hard quirkiness, and we would have preferred that they had just played it straight with him. Benny didn't really amuse us either, and we're pretty sure that he was supposed to.
All of that being said, for a movie with a small budget, Wyrmwood was an all-around solid effort.
|SHE GONNA KILL SOMEONE.|
|THERE IS NOTHING BUT REVENGE IN THOSE EYES.|
If you're a fan of all things zombie, then you really give this one a watch on VOD, or grab the Blu-ray when it comes out in a few months.
Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead is available now on VOD.
Bianca Bradey, so she needs to be half-dressed and sweaty in some more movies asap.
