First trailer for Pandemic gets up close and personal with zombies

Kind of feels like Left 4 Dead

Pandemic, the new zombie film that stars Star Trek's Rachel Nichols, wants you to see what it's like to take on the undead from the scientists' perspective.

The film follows a group of scientists — lead by Nichols — as they scour a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles that has become overrun by individuals infected by the virus that causes them to become zombie-like. The goal, like most zombie movies, is to hopefully find a group of uninfected survivors and develop a serum that will reverse the infection.

Based on the trailer, it looks like Pandemic will be similar to [REC.] and other found-footage style horror movies, attempting to give it an up-close-and-personal feel.

Starring Alfie Allen, Mekhi Phifer and Missi Pyle alongside Nichols, Pandemic is slated to hit theaters April 1.
