Back in 1998, the late George A. Romero—director of seminal zombie classics like Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, and Day of the Dead—put together a live-action commercial to promote the original Resident Evil 2. With the remake set to launch tomorrow, Capcom released a new live-action trailer that serves up the perfect homage to its 20-year-old predecessor.
Resident Evil 2 hits PS4, Xbox One, and PC on January 25. Prepare yourself for more survival horror with the live-action promo below.
