Zombie Mayhem Rises in “DEAD RISING: WATCHTOWER” Trailer


Last week, FANGORIA brought you the latest update on Zach Lipovsky’s DEAD RISING adaptation, WATCHTOWER, which will debut exclusively on Crackle this March. But while there was only so much information one can get from the teaser poster, IGN recently premiered the first trailer for DEAD RISING: WATCHTOWER, and it looks to satisfy fans of the game in a big way.

The trailer, which you can see below, carries a lot of trademarks from the video game franchise, displaying big action, brutal zombies and witty humor. The cast and filmmakers seems to be committed to bringing this choatic zombie insanity to life, and with Legendary backing them, it certainly seems like they’ve achieved their goal. And, frankly, it’s a change of pace this writer can get behind; it’s about time someone applied the CRANK aesthetic to the zombie genre, and there’s no property that could better serve that than DEAD RISING. Take a look at the trailer for DEAD RISING: WATCHTOWER below and if it’s got you by the brain, check it out on Crackle on March 27th.
