Every zombie story needs that scene, when the characters find out the world they know has changed forever. The scene when the dead rise from the grave or, at the very least, the characters see their first zombie. That familiarity makes this scene a good barometer to distinguish zombie projects and is probably why it was chosen as the first clip from Zach Lipovsky‘s Dead Rising: Watchtower, the online adaptation of the popular zombie video game series.
In the clip, we see the some of the main characters (played by Jesse Metcalfe and Keegan Connor Tracy) shockingly discover that zombies are about to mess stuff up in a big way. There’s some slick camera work and violence giving a nice tease of what to expect when Dead Rising: Watchtowers hits Crackle on March 27. Check out the first Dead Rising movie clip below. Read More »

Much like Chucky, there was something terrifying about seeing such a familiar, even lovable icon twisted into a new, frightening form. After a bunch of sequels though, the Leprechaun of my youth became a joke. As horror icons often do.
Enter WWE Studios, which has co-produced a remake with Lionsgate that they surely hope will terrify kids in much the same way as the original film. It’s called Leprechaun: Origins, directed by Zach Lipovsky and written by Harris Wilkinson. WWE wrestler Dylan “Hornswoggle” Postl plays the lead character, who terrorizes two American couples on vacation in Ireland.
