“She can control zombies!” is what stood out to me when watching the trailer for this zombie flick, which is expected to be released in America February 13, 2015. It looks like there’s a lot of action, but that line gives me pause because I really, really, don’t like thinking zombies. And if they can be controlled, it’s kind of like they are thinking. Someone is thinking for them and making them move in specific ways. That doesn’t excite me.
What does get me is the amount of action in the trailer. If the movie is just as non-stop, then I may be able to overlook the prospect of zombies that have a goal (other than eating humans that is).
A woman kicking ass is also a plus!
Here’s the synopsis according to ign.com:
“Zombies invade the Australian Outback in this brain-splattered, Mad Max-meets-the-undead thrill ride. When an apocalyptic event turns everyone around him—including his wife and daughter—into marauding zombies, everyman mechanic Barry arms himself to the teeth, soups up his car, and hits the road in order to rescue his sister from a deranged, disco-dancing mad doctor. Bursting with high-octane car chases, crazy-cool homemade weaponry, and enough blood-and-guts gore to satisfy hardcore horror fans, Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead takes the zombie flick to bone-crunchingly berserk new heights.”
I spell it “supes” not “soups” because that’s the correct slang way to spell it. But I guess since it’s slang it doesn’t matter. Anyway, the point is, the synopsis sounds pretty cool. Like a typical zombie platform to get things going, which I have no problem with.
When I see it, I’ll let you know what I think. As always, please let me know what you think, and let them know too!
Thanks for reading!
