Aussie brothers in arms Kiah and Tristan Roach-Turner have a cult hit on their hands with zombie Outback horror Wyrmwood. Hilarious, horrifying and packed full of homages to the best genre flicks in the bizz, it's no surprise that when Tristan sat down with Graffiti With Punctuation to discuss his Five Star Film there wasn't just one: there was a shit load.
"What a question! So Evil Dead, The Departed, Reservoir Dogs, Aliens, Star Wars (the original series) and most recently Whiplash, which I loved so much I went and saw it twice in three days. I'm absolutely obsessed. We love New Zealand films, like Bad Taste and Braindead... We’d love Peter Jackson to see Wyrmwood just for that reason. And Razorback, which was the first R-Rated movie I ever saw."
