description

Set in an infested Australian wasteland, the post-apocalyptic zombie film follows a soldier, as he turns against his evil bosses and joins forces with a group of rebel survivors to help rescue a girl who might hold the cure to the virus.

Rhys, a soldier and hunter, has a job to track and capture civilians who have survived the undead plague and deliver them to the brutal Surgeon General. But when Rhys captures a mysterious half-zombie-half-human indigenous girl named Grace, he is convinced that she may be the key to ending the apocalypse. So begins a race against time as a team of rebel soldiers attempts to save Grace from the evil clutches of the Surgeon General before she is subjected to his nightmarish brain-drilling, head-exploding experiments. A follow-up to CUFF alumnus Kiah Roache-Turner's (NEKROTRONIC) 2015 horror-comedy WYRMWOOD: ROAD OF THE DEAD, APOCALYPSE is a no-holds-barred, retina blistering Aussie zombie flick.
