Kiah Roache-Turner’s ‘Nekrotronic’ invades the Us as ‘The Nightingale’ expands

‘Nekrotronic.’

Kiah Roache-Turner’s Nekrotronic opened in the Us last weekend as a multi-platform release.

Momentum Pictures launched the sci-fi horror comedy starring Monica Bellucci, Ben O’Toole, David Wenham, Caroline Ford, Tess Haubrich and Bob Epine Savea in cinemas in 10 cities and on VOD and digital HD.

The eOne-owned distributor did not share box office figures, which are typically modest for day-and-date releases. The benefit of the theatrical exposure is that the reviews and publicity give the film a profile which pays off in ancillary revenues.

The director trimmed five minutes of exposition scenes after the world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, resulting in more favourable reviews, particularly from genre websites.

For example, We Are Movie Geek’s Marc Butterfield hailed the film as “hilarious, fun, action packed, and full of gross, splashy, gooey moments; in other words, fantastic.”

Butterfield observed: “The movie has a nice amalgamation of story elements from Ghostbusters,

North American release set for ‘Nekrotronic’

‘Nekrotronic.’

Kiah Roache-Turner’s sci-fi horror comedy Nekrotronic will be released in the Us in select cinemas and on VOD and digital HD on August 9 by Momentum Pictures.

“I’m really excited: I think day-and-date is the future for most independent films in the Us,” Kiah tells If. “Some say it is the end of cinema but it’s not: it’s a different way of delivering films to eyeballs.”

One advantage of the day-and-date strategy is limiting the potential for piracy. The Roache-Turner brothers’ Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead was available on iTunes in the Us before the Australian release. “Piracy killed us,” he says.

Produced by Andrew Mason and Troy Lum for Hopscotch Features and Tristan Roache-Turner for Guerrilla Films, Nekrotronic stars Monica Bellucci as Finnegan, CEO of the sinister Daemokon corporation, who is determined to feast on every human soul on the planet via a new smartphone app.

Hans(el) und (G)rendel

There is something uniquely American in the unashamed virtues and patriotism wrapped up in traditional Superhero films. It is this un-ironic earnestness that I admire but find impossible to emulate personally. Superman, with his endlessly positivity is too vanilla for me. Probably more importantly I am, deep down too sneering, too cynical to fully embrace or relate to the struggles of the invincible man with the shopping list of powers.

Speaking of heroes… lots of people like to root for John McClane in the original Die Hard as the consummate underdog. Even watching as a kid, I rooted for the actual underdogs of the movie,

Gore-filled Promo For Wyrmwood: Chronicles Of The Dead

Stop everything you are doing and watch this gore-filled promo for Wyrmwood: Chronicles of the Dead, the proposed tv show based on the hit zombie flick from brothers Kiah and Tristan Roache-Turner.   Calling this gore-filled is an understatement. Holy. Hell. Is there a lot of blood and gore in this thing. There are so many words. Gratuitous. Copious. Disgusting.    It is also funny as fuck, dipped with the same humor that made the movie such an equal delight of violence and laughs. Even the camera direction and its nods to a filmmaker like Raimi add to the flavor.   And if you thought Bianca Bradey was bad as fuck in the movie then you need to check out these mad skills of Australian...

First Trailer for Finnish Superhero Movie 'Rendel' Made by Jesse Haaja

"What the hell is Rendel?" The first official trailer has arrived online for a Finnish, futuristic superhero film titled Rendel, which is the name of the masked superhero character that it's about. Created by the film's director, Jesse Haaja, Rendel is a "faceless" superhero fighting against the Vala criminal organization in the "cold dystopia" of a fictionalized version of a Finnish city called Mikkeli. This "superhero story" is a bit darker and grittier than what we see out of Hollywood, but still has some of the same tropes of the genre. Starring Finnish actor Kristofer Gummerus as Rendel, along with Matti Onnismaa, Minttu Tamski, Roosa-Maria Makinen, Alina Tomnikov, Bianca Bradey, and Johnny Vivash. This looks it could be cool, but I'm also a bit worried it might also be straight-to-vhs level terrible. Check out the footage below.

Wyrmwood's Bianca Bradey Leads Nancy In Hell Comic to TV Adaptation, And More Wyrmwood

If there was a title belt for badass women in genre film each year Wyrmwood's Bianca Bradey would have cleared the ballots for her role as Brooke back in 2014. Badass did not begin to cover it. Phwar! Zip ahead three years later and the Australian actress is looking to add to her badass female repertoire with news from Down Under that Bradey has landed the lead role in the television adaptation of the comic book Nancy in Hell. Bradey will "play the titular character – a trash-talking, wise-cracking, whisky-swilling badass who slaughters demons with her trademark chainsaw". A Kickstarter campaign was launched by producer Jennifer Van Gessel last spring to make a pitch film for an international studio and it looks like...

DVD Review – Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead (2015)

Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead, 2015.

Directed by Kiah Roache-Turner.

Starring Jay Gallagher, Bianca Bradey, Leon Burchill and Luke McKenzie.

Synopsis:

During the outbreak of the zombie apocalypse a mechanic goes in search of his sister, who has been kidnapped by a group of psychotic soldiers who want to experiment on her.

It may seem like sacrilege to say it but the zombie genre is dying on its arse. Horror movies have always been notoriously cheap to produce and in this day of CGI effects replacing practical squibs and latex flesh it has never been easier to knock something together quickly and for very little physical effort, hence why the zombie movie has become so prevalent over the past few years. And with the increasing quantity comes the decreasing quality, meaning that studios putting out any old mean-spirited guff with the words “…of the Dead” in the title is supposed to

Exclusive: Co-Writer/Director Kiah Roache-Turner on Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead, Sequel Plans & What’s Next

  • DailyDead
For his feature film debut, Australian filmmaker Kiah Roache-Turner delivers a raucously fun and badass zombie-infused road movie in Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead. Co-written by Kiah and his brother Tristan, the story follows an unlikely hero by the name of Barry (Jay Gallagher) who must fight his way through hordes of newly transformed zombies in order to save his sister Brooke (Bianca Bradey) who has been kidnapped by government officials under mysterious circumstances.

Daily Dead recently spoke to Roache-Turner about his experiences collaborating on the indie horror film alongside his brother, how the story of Wyrmwood evolved over time throughout production, the importance of making something more than ‘just another zombie movie’ and what they’ve got planned for the sequel in the future.

Thanks so much for chatting today, Kiah. The movie is just fantastic and it’s probably one of the best zombie films I’ve seen in a long time.

New trailers for post-apocalyptic zombie flick Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead

Coinciding with its U.S. release this past weekend, director Kiah Roache-Turner’s post-apocalyptic zombie flick Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead has received new red and green band trailers, and you check them out below after the official synopsis…

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.

Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead is out now in the States and opens in the UK on February 27th, with a cast that includes Jay Gallagher,

Pirates devour Zombie horror/comedy

A still from Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead..

Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead was the most downloaded film globally last weekend, according to one torrent site, after being launched in the Us on iTunes on Friday.

The rampant piracy dismays Kiah Roache-Turner, who made his feature debut directing the Zombie horror/comedy, co-written and produced with his brother Tristan.

The saga of mechanic Barry (Jay Gallagher), who loses his family in an Apocalypse then sets out with best mate Benny (Leon Burchill) to find his missing sister (Bianca Bradey), it had one-off screenings at 76 cinemas nationally last Friday night.

Distributed by Studiocanal, the film grossed $85,000, which brings its total to $124,000 including the proceeds from five Moonlight Cinema screenings.

As an alternate content title, it will be released on DVD and on digital platforms on April 2. While that.s faster than the traditional 120- day holdback, it.s not fast enough for the brothers.

Review: Wyrmwood

  • DailyDead
In general, I haven’t been a big fan of zombie movies over the last five years. It may be related to how zombie-crazy pop culture has gotten as of late, but I rarely get enthused these days over the prospect of watching the undead munch their way through yet another 90 minutes of my time. But then a movie like Wyrmwood comes along and completely proves me wrong. This Australian zombie romp is as gory as it is fiercely hilarious, managing to find some clever new twists to the ever-popular subgenre.

Wyrmwood was entitled after a passage in the Book of Revelations that prophesized the end of days after “ a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky and turned the water bitter.” It’s a biblical allegory that fits perfectly here as the outbreak of the zombie pandemic is caused by a passing comet one night; people

Wyrmwood: Road Of The Dead Review

Wyrmwood: Road Of The Dead is a confident debut from Aussie filmmaker Kiah Roache-Turner, a man who dares to create an apocalyptic landscape that re-imagines zombie lore in a ballsy new light. Gone are the teachings of George A. Romero, as Kiah and his brother Tristan instead turn to down-under legend George Miller for inspiration and a more action-heavy attitude over traditional zombie thinking. Kiah and Tristan set out to make a film that blends Mad Max and Night Of The Living Dead, and they certainly whip up a rip-roaring mechanized nightmare that screams “Mission Accomplished.” Wyrmwood: Road Of The Dead establishes a violent dystopia filled with armored vehicles, sick experiments and tons of bad blood, and while the story leaves unexplained holes, Wyrmwood is a lonely road I’d love to travel down many more times.

When Australia is ravaged by a massive zombie infection, only a few survivors
