Australia 2014 98 mins. In English

Routine family life comes to an abrupt end for outback mechanic Barry, who, armed with a nail gun, finds little comfort in having resisted an airborne contagion that’s kicked off an Australian zombie apocalypse. Quickly joining forces with other survivors, he and his merry band of zombie slayers hit the road looking to rescue his punk rock sister from the hands of the sadistic, gas-mask wearing government officials who have kidnapped her. Harvesting more than a smidgeon of that old Mad Max energy, first-time feature director Roache-Turner pushes this tale of the walking dead into audacious new territory, producing a zombie comedy with visual thrills reminiscent of the best early work by Peter Jackson and Sam Raimi.
