Zombie fiction is back – and who better to lead a well -respected sci -fi horror charge Resident Evil? Spanning 26 years, 14 consoles, and 7 films – some more well received than others – Resident Evil‘s gritty, action-heavy campiness has earned it a following devotion and a solid place in video game legends. Now, Netflix is trying to make it live-action Resident Evil adaptation, and the results look into some interesting places.
For those who didn’t know, the plot of some of the first mainline games took place in and around a fictional Midwestern town called Raccoon City, which is the site of several nefarious biological experiments conducted by the sinister biomedical group Umbrella Corporation. Most famous among these innovations is the T-virus, the mutagenic agent responsible for all the zombies and other monsters that run around the protagonists. Some of these protagonists come from STARS, a special operations force stationed at the Raccoon City Police Department; others are civilians who are dragged into the process by forces outside their control, whose theme is appropriate for a survival horror game. A savvy audience will want to keep an eye on these themes and concepts over time Resident Evil release.
The trailer runs in hell: a flyover through what was once a city and now a crawling desert with maddened undead and embattled survivors of a desperate battle to escape from them. In an alternate voice, we hear the adult Jade explain that “she says that this world is over in 2036,” that the end of this world happened much earlier. The scene then becomes a clean and bright city surrounded by greenery. There was a sign greeting the lone car approaching: “Welcome to New Raccoon City.”
A new voiceover takes over: as young Jade and her sister Billie explore their new home, a calm woman’s voice extols Umbrella Corporation, a “company besieged by scandal” that is “now trying to reinvent itself.” There’s a dramatic air, like Stepford for the sound and image delivery of the city: very clean, quiet, and perfectly so real. The effect only increases when we look at the speaker: perhaps as a representative of the Umbrella Corporation, he smiled blandly when he said, “That’s what we’re doing now – it’s going to change this world.”
Billie grabbed what looked like a strange caterpillar on camera, watching as it crawled into her arms. Then, everything suddenly changes: the sidewalk cracks, red dirt explodes up, and we see Jade running away from her life from an enormous worm. This is the beginning of the end of the adult world Jade is talking about. “We have a problem,” says Albert’s father when we see a lab rat crack the glass of its cage; then we cut to him when he comes soberly, “Drugs contain T-viruses. T viruses can create monsters,” he explains, and we see some of those monsters when he says: destroy undead humans, vicious undead dogs. Billie appears menaced by something, and in the next shot she appears dead or unconscious; we see young Jade screaming in anguish. Another disturbing imagery: Billie, other survivors, and various monsters, until we see Jade mature again, covered in blood. He hisses expletive, stands up, and proceeds to wreck the shop with a chainsaw. The next few scenes show Jade and others fighting hordes of zombies, intercut with the series tagline: “Evil Has Evolved.”
