Based on the widely popular Capcom videogame franchise, which has sold over 7.6MM copies worldwide, Dead Rising: Watchtower will be available for streaming on Crackle in its feature form on March, 27, 2015.
The story follows Chase Carter (Jesse Metcalfe), an online reporter trying to make it big – but the pursuit of his career-defining story leads him into the heart of a zombie-infested warzone. The quarantined city quickly erupts into carnage and anarchy, becoming a deathtrap he’ll be lucky to escape.
Chase joins forces with a desperate band of survivors. Crystal (Meghan Ory) is tough and independent, and may be the key to exposing the conspiracy behind the mysterious outbreak. But when she is bitten, their greatest asset may become their biggest threat.
Joined by Maggie (Virginia Madsen), a brave mother torn from her child, the survivors unite to develop an arsenal of makeshift zombie-slaying weaponry. Hunting for the truth, they must slash, smash and shoot their way through rampaging hordes, vicious gangs and hostile government operatives. Their death-defying journey to escape the city leads to an explosive confrontation, where the true nature of the threat is unleashed. They’ll have to kill the undead — or die trying.
