Dead Rising: Watchtower Released!

When you sell more than 8.2 million copies of a video game, you can be pretty sure that a film adaptation will be just around the corner. And that’s exactly what’s happened with Capcom’s Zombie-masher Dead Rising.

Dead Rising: Watchtower follows Chase Carter (Jesse Metcalfe), a reporter trying to make it big – but the pursuit of his career-defining story leads him into the heart of a zombie-infested warzone. East Mission, Oregon is locked down after police find the bodies of what appear to be victims of a zombie attack. Zombies are not a new phenomenon, but outbreaks are uncommon. Past incidents were only just contained in time and the country is nervous. When two ambitious Net 2.0 reporters, Chase and his colleague Jordan, get inside the quarantine zone to report on a large group of civilians trapped in an inner city dome stadium, they realise they’re waiting for a rescue that isn’t coming.

It’s now available to watch via iTunes, selected VOD channels and DVD/Blu-ray. We haven’t seen this yet, but if you have, we’d love to know what you think!
