House of the Dead: OVERKILL – Extended Cut Double Feature Trailer
SEGA’s newly released game trailer for House of the Dead: OVERKILL – Extended Cut is just like watching a film trailer for an underground 1970’s grindhouse double-feature–complete with the raspy voice of the narrator, the retro movie-reel quality, and of course the gratuitous violence and gore that’s accustomed to any cult classic B-Movie. This trailer retains the signature elements and visual flair associated with the zombie shooter, paying respects to the sexploitation genre with the two bad-ass heroines Varla Guns and Candi Stryper.
The new trailer also reveals two exclusive levels that are jam-packed with wicked zombie shooting action: Naked Terror and Creeping Flesh. Naked Terror pits our two femme fatales in a strip club (where else?) swarming with ravenous flesh-eaters. In Creeping Flesh, our devilishly daring duo face off against freakish undead monsters in a slaughterhouse from hell.

I personally am enraptured by SEGA’s move to resurrect the gritty grindhouse style, and would love to see more of it in upcoming titles–maybe in another zombie shooter like Left 4 Dead 3?
