Bitchin' Ads- Dead Island Trailer

Why is it that video game trailers seem to be the best ads? Dead Silver has released their trailer for the upcoming game Dead Island and so far its been a massive viral hit online. As you can probably guess, it is a zombie game. The trailer shows the death of a little girl in reverse order and a zombie fight at the same time. The trailer seems to very story driven as opposed to focusing on the fact that you get to kill zombies in the game. I think this can be attributed to AMC's latest hit show, The Walking Dead, which has been a massive success. The trailer has been such a huge hit that Dead Silver had already been receiving an incredible amount of interest from Hollywood to do a movie adaption. It's probably safe to say that the zombie fad is back on. Whether this can compete with the shitty teen-emo, paranormal romance fad, we'll just have to see. I just want to see a film adaption of John Ajvide Lindqvis's novel, Handling the Undead. Check out the trailer below:
