O.H.M.A.D. 2015 Day 15: Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead (2014)

Wyrnrwood:  Road of the Dead is a nice little Ozploitation film that is an amalgam of The Road Warrior and Dawn of the Dead.  That description should let you know whether or not this is a film for you.  The movie starts off with a zombie outbreak and focuses primarily on a husband who is widowed due to the outbreak and an attractive female who shares a bond with him and the zombies that becomes known as the story progresses.
