According to Coming Soon, “Dead Rising: Watchtower” takes place “during a large-scale zombie outbreak. When a mandatory government vaccine fails to stop the infection from spreading, the four leads must evade infection while also pursuing the root of the epidemic, with all signs pointing to a government conspiracy. Politics, public paranoia, and media coverage play an important role in the story’s narrative.”
The film will debut on Crackle, then will be released on VOD.
