Dead Rising: Watchtower is a straight-to-streaming service (because that’s a thing now) zombie film based on Capcom’s Dead Rising video game series. The original game is the first of its kind, a trailblazer for the open world horror genre. It takes place in an infested shopping mall akin to Dawn of the Dead. Dead Rising 2 introduced a weapons mechanic to combine and create unique tools of slaughter, something Watchtower touches on. The guy on the poster up there is holding the signature weapon the main character from Dead Rising 3 uses, but unfortunately it doesn’t last long in the movie.
Welcome to America, where one night a year all crime is legal. For 12 hours you can rape, pillage, and kill as much as you want, to anyone you want, and be absolved of all wrongdoing in the morning. But beware, a lack of active law enforcement or medical aid means you might find yourself a victim if you aren’t careful. Organized gangs are roaming the streets and they might target you if you present yourself as weak. So as long as you are cautious and know when to retreat you are guaranteed to reap the benefits of The Purge.
