The first trailer for Dead Rising: Watchtower is here, and it looks like a whole lotta bloody, gory, zombie fun. Adapted from Capcom’s popular Dead Rising videogame franchise, the upcoming flick will first air on Sony’s streaming service, Crackle, on March 27.

Dead Rising: Watchtower boasts the zombie prevention drug Zombrex, as it does in the videogame. Written by Tim Carter (Sleeping Dogs), the story follows a group of survivors fighting to survive in a zombie-infested town following the failure of a government vaccine to stop the infection. Sound a bit familiar? Yeah, it does. Sounds like every zombie movie and TV show out there. But what can one do when faced with a zombie apocalypse and some crazy psychos? Whip out some lethal weapons, and ask questions muuuuch later, that’s what.

Have a look at the trailer:

The movie stars Rob Riggle (The Daily Show) in the role of photojournalist Frank West. Jesse Metcalfe (John Tucker Must Die, Desperate Housewives), Virginia Madsen (Sideways), Dennis Haysbert (Wreck-It Ralph, 24), Keegan Connor Tracy (Once Upon a Time) and Meghan Ory (Vampire High, Once Upon a Time, Intelligence) round out the cast.

Dead Rising: Watchtower will debut on Crackle — which is available for PlayStation and Xbox, as well as PC and mobile devices — on March 27.
