Cool Horror Videos: Dead Island live-action backwards trailer

Surely you recall the fantastic backwards trailer/promo for DEAD ISLAND that hit the 'net a few years ago. Surprisingly emotional, not to mention incredibly well done, the promo announced the arrival of the next big zombie video game. Fantastic marketing, because we were all talking about it for days...

Now director BJ McDonnell (HATCHET 3) has recreated the promo shot-for-shot with actual actors and gore. The effect is quite impressive, and just as moving.

Perhaps this is McDonnell's bid to direct the feature film version of DEAD ISLAND Lionsgate has been planning?

Seen the video game trailer a thousand times at this point...still gives me chills. Was so disappointed when I got the game and didn't like it. Would still make a fantastic movie though, if put into the right hands...

That trailer still gives me chills. An amazing trailer for a subpar game. Every gaming company should hire the man behind the original trailer; that game came out of nowhere when that trailer hit the web.

I have. Too bad it was nothing like the trailer. Hacking and slashing zombies was there, but the emotional side of it? Nope. This live action version is pretty cool. And if there is a film coming out, I hope they invest more to the characters, unlike the game developers.
