Nekrotronic Poster
A man who discovers that he is part of a secret sect of magical beings who hunt down and destroy demons in the internet.
From down under comes a zombie movie with zombie fighters against zombies.  The film begins with an introduction of the history of what has occurred, animated style.  This brings the story to the present where a group of hunters known as Nekromancers do battle with evil forces that use social media apps to demonically possess the masses.
  It is the brother team of  Kiah and Tristan Roache-Turner with Kian directing.  The film plays like the typical horror comedy gore fest where anything goes.   The humour is occasionally laugh-out loud as in the case of a male nurse showing up at the hospital, with the lea character (Ben O’Toole) quipping: “What happened to all the pretty female nurses?  All I get is hair slapped on a penis, referring to an ugly male nurse that shows up.  Nothing really new but lots of blood and limbs splattered around for those who like this kind of stuff.  
The film updates the story to the ghosts begin able to travel through the internet.
