Last month we learned that IFC Midnight had scooped up Australian zombie film Wyrmwood and sci-fi thriller Ejecta, and today release dates for both have been set. You can expect them in February, and you’ll find all the information by reading on!
Described as Mad Max meets Dawn of the Dead, writer-director Kiah Roache-Turner’s Wyrmwood (review) centers on Barry, a talented mechanic and family man whose life is torn apart on the eve of a zombie apocalypse. On the road he teams up with Chalker, a fellow survivor, and together they must arm themselves and prepare to battle their way through hordes of flesh-eating monsters in a harsh Australian bushland.
Wyrmood will hit VOD platforms on February 13, 2015. The cast includes Jay Gallagher, Bianca Bradey, Leon Burchill, Keith Agius, Catherine Terracini, Meganne West, Luke McKenzie, Berynn Schwerdt, Yure Covich, Cain Thompson, Beth Aubrey, Sheridan Harbridge, and Damian Dykeall.
Directed by Chad Archibald and Matt Wiele, Ejecta (review) tells the terrifying story of two men whose lives cross paths on a fateful night during a once in a lifetime solar storm. An unknown presence besieges the men on a remote farm, triggering an intense struggle to survive not only the night but also the horrific interrogations and tortures of an anonymous organization who will stop at nothing to learn the truth about what the two men witnessed.
Look for Ejecta in limited theaters and on VOD platforms February 27, 2015. Julian Richings (Cube), Lisa Houle (Pontypool), and Adam Seybold (Exit Humanity) star.
