“How bad will it get?” a character asks in the first trailer for Crackle original “Dead Rising: Watchtower.”

It’s hard to tell, but the movie featuring familiar faces like Jesse Metcalfe (“Dallas”), Meghan Ory (“Once Upon a Time”), Virginia Madsen (“Sideways”), Dennis Haysbert (“24”), and Rob Riggle (“21 Jump Street”) doesn’t look good.

Legendary Entertainment’s Television and Digital Media division’s production looks like more of the same direct-to-DVD zombie horror the genre has seen before, mixed with Riggle’s humor.

“You’re basically f–ked,” his character says with a laugh while appearing on a news broadcast addressing the severity of the situation.

Based on the popular video game, “Dead Rising,” the movie follows Metcalfe and three companions navigating a large-scale zombie outbreak when a mandatory government vaccine fails to stop the infection from spreading.

Crackle, Sony’s free streaming service supported by ad sales, will premiere the movie on March 27.
