Guts & Gore: Wyrmwood

In 2015 the Roache-Turner brothers released their rough-around-the-edges zombie film Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead which rose to top spot on Netflix. Now they've just wrapped filming on the next instalment, Wrymwood: Apocalypse, in Sydney's Dural, with a cast and crew of 100. The synopsis says: 'In a post-apocalyptic world, this film follows special-forces soldier Rhys, (Luke Mckenzie), who teams up with a group of super-powered survivors to save a young woman from death. With a high-octane mix of weird and wacky tropes, the action-packed film also features home-grown talent Nick Boshier, Jake Ryan, Bianca Bradey, Jay Gallagher and the sensationally talented, indigenous actresses Tasia Zalar and Shantae Barnes-Cowan.'
