DEAD RISING: WATCHTOWER debuted back in the spring on Crackle, but it's now getting to spread its wings and reach the rest of the globe via a wide DVD/VOD release (which, incidentally, it hasn't yet received in the states). Today we're debuting a featurette that goes behind the scenes of the zombie mayhem, as you get a look at the bloody slicing and dicing that took place on set. Plus you get to hear from castmembers Jesse Metcalfe, Meghan Ory, and more!
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 realize they’re waiting for a rescue that isn’t coming.
