First Look: Crackle’s ‘Dead Rising: Watchtower’


Crackle has been kind enough to give us all a first look at Dead Rising: Watchtower, a made for streaming adaptation of the zombie video game franchise.

[dropcap=”small”]F[/dropcap]or those unfamiliar with the source material, Dead Rising is set in a world where zombies have taken over and humans need to fight to survive. The gameplay generally involves overly gruesome zombie killing with a “use anything as a weapon” approach. Imagine The Walking Dead with way more zombie interactions. It’s actually somewhat shocking that a film adaptation hadn’t already been made.

In this snippet, we get to see a few of the main characters during that initial moment when shit goes from bad to worse. One by one dying patients start coughing up blood and waking up in a zombified state. It’s just a taste of what we can expect from the full 90-minute feature, but it’s surely enough to pique our interest. Check out the clip below.


Dead Rising: Watchtower stars Jesse Metcalfe, Dennis Haysbert, Virginia Madsen, Meghan Ory, Keegan Connor Tracy, and Rob Riggle. Written by Tim Carter. Directed by Zach Lipovsky. Streaming on Crackle March 27.

I was born, I pooped myself a bunch, I cried, took my first step, and then at the young age of eight my dad showed me a little film by the name of Pulp Fiction. My mind was blown. From that moment I learned to appreciate film on another level. To put it simply, I love movies.
