Believe it or not, the zombie genre isn’t dead yet. Far from it, actually. Despite the fact that I feel like the genre has been exploited in every which way, they still keep coming. I won’t say I’m sick of them just yet. While I never go out of my way to watch a zombie movie or TV show, if it has some sort of unique element, I’ll usually give it a chance. A good story is a good story, whether or not it includes zombies.

It’s with that mindset in mind I walked into this PANDEMIC trailer.

Check it out below!

While I wouldn’t call the whole first-person perspective thing “unique,” it does appear to be utilized effectively here, and it goes a long way in making this movie feel more and more like a video game.  Will the decision to go first-person grow old? we’ll have to wait and see!

The film stars Rachel Nichols, Alfie Allen, Pat Healy, Missi Pyle, and Mekhi Phifer.

The synopsis for PANDEMIC is as follows:

“Pandemic is set in the near future, where a virus of epic proportions has overtaken the planet. There are more infected than uninfected, and humanity is losing its grip on survival. Its only hope is finding a cure and keeping the infected contained. Lauren (Rachel Nichols) is a doctor, who, after the fall of New York, comes to Los Angeles to lead a team to hunt for and rescue uninfected survivors.”

PANDEMIC hits theaters on April 1, 2016, and VOD on April 5.
