IFC Midnight Acquires Australian Zombie Film Wyrmwood

Described as Mad Max meets Dawn of the Dead (yes, please!), Aussie zombie flick Wyrmwood (review) premiered earlier this year at Fantastic Fest, and our own Matt Boiselle praised it as “a simple, effective, and fun film.” When can you see it? Well, read on for the latest!

Bloody Disgusting reports today that IFC Midnight has acquired the film for U.S. distribution so it’s only a matter of time before a date is announced. Altitude Film Sales will be handling international sales, while Raven Banner Entertainment has Canadian rights and plans to release day and date with IFC Midnight.

From writer-director Kiah Roache-Turner comes Wyrmwood, which is being billed as a “no-holds-barred, retina-blistering Aussie post-apocalyptic zombie film.

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 star.

Synopsis:
Barry (Gallagher) is 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.
