It may not be a popular opinion but – I gave up on the Resident Evil flicks about a decade ago – honestly, can’t even remember how many they made or the order in which they were released – I just remember that they morphed into more of an action franchise than a horror franchise and I just lost interest – but…
Along comes this trailer for RESIDENT EVIL: WELCOME TO RACCOON CITY and – I’m not going to lie – I’m digging this a little – have a peek and see what you think.
From the press release:
Returning to the origins of the massively popular RESIDENT EVIL franchise, fan and filmmaker Johannes Roberts brings the games to life for a whole new generation of fans. In RESIDENT EVIL: WELCOME TO RACCOON CITY, once the booming home of pharmaceutical giant Umbrella Corporation, Raccoon City is now a dying Midwestern town. The company’s exodus left the city a wasteland…with great evil brewing below the surface. When that evil is unleashed, a group of survivors must work together to uncover the truth behind Umbrella and make it through the night.
