    Default Dead Island video game - people are talking about this trailer

    My brother just sent me a link to this. Crazy preview trailer, and some people are offended by it.

    I love zombie shit, but I have trouble with the killing of kids in any medium. I don't find it offensive, per se - but damn.

    Meh. We've already seen zombie sprogs trying to eat people on the tv series Walking Dead. I was more struck by the zombie dude in the Hawaiian shirt. Reminded me of one of Grimm's Hallowe'en costumes.

    I saw Walking Dead and I don't remember any zombie kids. And I definitely don't remember any parents killing their zombie kids as depicted here.

    There was a little zombie girl in the first episode and (IIRC) Grimes shoots her after she starts shuffling towards him to have a nibble.

    You can see her (although not the shooting) at approx 2.45 in this clip.

    Dead Island Could Be Coming To Theaters - News - www.GameInformer.com

    The cinematic trailer for Techland's upcoming zombie game Dead Island has been a viral hit online, scoring millions of views since its debut a few days ago. More than a few people have realized its potential as a full-length film as well, with Hollywood freaking out over the possibilities.

    According to Deadline, the film rights were secured by Mummy producers Sean Daniel Company and Union Entertainment nearly a year ago. The companies are fielding offers from a number of studios and agencies, but it's still at an exceptionally early stage at this point. Deadline is saying that a Dead Island film would take the same approach as the trailer, shifting between flashbacks and present-day action to tell the story of chaos erupting on a tropical resort.
