Releasing in cinemas on November 24th, the movie is said to follow the story of the original Resident Evil and its celebrated sequel, Resident Evil 2. That certainly shows, with memorable scenes from both games have been recreated, including the famous head turn when Chris/Claire make first contact with their undead enemies at Spencer Mansion.

We’ve yet to see just how far Welcome to Raccoon City will deviate from the plot of those original games. However, Sony Pictures Entertainment will no doubt have taken some creative liberties in weaving the two stories together into one cohesive narrative.

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.

As both a horror film and a video game adaptation, there’s some hammy acting afoot. However, Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City has a pretty strong cast.
