Rise of Nightmares trailer makes comedy out of gore

"Not your usual family-friendly Kinect game, is it?" asks gory trailer

This new trailer for Sega's gory Kinect game, Rise of Nightmares, makes decapitation and brutal violence out to be slapstick comedy. It's funny what a difference a funny background tune can make.

The game sees players assume the role of an American tourist who has to rescue his wife from a deranged scientist. Played from a first-person perspective, we're promised plenty of decapitation with knives, hatchets and chainsaws.

Out this summer, it's the first Kinect game to get an 18 rating from the BBFC.
