The upcoming ‘Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City’ movie reboot will feature an iconic zombie sequence from the original video game. The first ‘Resident Evil’ arrived on the PlayStation 1 back in 1996, and while Capcom's expectations were modest, it soon became a word-of-mouth smash. The story dealt with an elite law enforcement group dubbed S.T.A.R.S investigating an abandoned mansion and finding it filled with monsters. Instead of blasting through enemies, players had to make use of limited ammunition and items.

This style of genre was dubbed survival horror, with the surprise success of ‘Resident Evil’ inspiring other titles like ‘Silent Hill’ and ‘Parasite Eve. Resident Evil’ itself would launch a franchise that is still running to this day, with 2021 seeing the arrival of both the video game ‘Resident Evil Village’ and movie reboot ‘Welcome To Raccoon City’. This film has no links to the previous Milla Jovovich-led film series and instead combines the storylines of the first two games in the franchise.

The ‘Resident Evil 2’ portion of the movie will apparently play like a zombie version of Assault On Precinct 13 - with John Carpenter being a favorite of ‘Welcome To Raccoon City’ helmer Johannes Roberts - while the other section deals with S.T.A.R.S entering the mansion. While familiar characters like Jill Valentine, Chris Redfield and Albert Wesker will appear, details of which monsters will turn up are being kept mostly under wraps. What has been confirmed is that one of the most chilling moments of the original ‘Resident Evil’ game, where the first zombie players encounter turns to look at them, will be recreated.    -We Got This Covered
