Resident Evil



"Resident Evil" ... combat between computer and man.

SCREEN GEMS/ Constantin Film/Davis Films' "Resident Evil" written and directed by Paul W.S. Anderson ("Mortal Combat", "Event Horizon") is a film based on the best selling capcom computer game series. Starring Milla Javovich, Michelle Rodriguez, Eric Mabius, James Purefoy, Martin Crewes and Colin Salmon, the film is about a secret experiment gone awry.

A deadly virus becomes a fatal mistake. And it then becomes a battle between the good and the evil and human versus computer, the living against the "undead". Something awful is lurking in the hive, a vast underground genetic research facility run by the Umbrella Corporation, a faceless bioengineering conglomerate. There is a predictable outbreak and in response the red queen — a vast supercomputer that controls and monitors the hive, seals the entire facility to contain the leak, killing all the trapped employees.

Alice and Rain are the ones to lead the commandos to isolate the virus that has wiped out Umbrella's entire research staff. But then they soon discover that the workers are not really dead! They are undead! One scratch or bite from any one of them causes infection, worse, transformation into their kind. Alice and the military task force have just three hours to complete their mission before the virus threatens to overrun the earth. Will they do that? Or is it just doomsday?

Filmed on location in and around Berlin, and on stages at Studio Berlin in the East Berlin suburb of Adlershof, "Resident Evil" has as its director of photography, David Johnson (Othello, Hillary and Jackie) with production and costume design by Richard Bridgland, visual effects by Richard Yuricich, ("Mission Impossible 2", "Star Trek", and "Blade Runner") and special make up effects by Animated Extras International Ltd. The soundtrack music is composed by Clint Mansell ("Requiem For A Dream", "The Hole").
