This Zombie-Fighting Movie Looks Like The Worst First-Person Shooter Ever

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

Here’s the first trailer for Pandemic, a movie in which Kiera from Continuum goes into a plague zone in Los Angeles to find survivors. And she fights, basically, zombies. The whole thing is shot in a “first-person shooter” style, so it’s sort of an attempt to duplicate the feeling of a video game. Because that worked so well for Doom.


But maybe this is a logical extension of the “found footage” ethos. When Content Media acquired this film from director John Suits and producer Gabriel Cowan, Content Film President Jamie Carmichael said:

Pandemic is a potential game changer. The FPS component immerses the viewer right into heart the film—in a hybrid gamer style. We’re incredibly impressed with John and Gabriel’s inventive work.


So I guess it’s a game changer... because it looks like a game? Okay then. Also in Pandemic: Mekhi Phifer from Torchwood, and Alfie Allen from Game of Thrones.

Edited to remove the comment about watching someone else play a game because, yes, duh, that is actually a popular thing.

I know us old people don’t get it, but watching other people play games is, like, a major thing. My 16-year-old son spends way too much time (IMO) watching other people play games on YouTube.
