Alice awakes in Raccoon City, only to find it has become infested with zombies and monsters. With the help of Jill Valentine and Carlos Olivera, Alice must find a way out of the city before it is destroyed by a nuclear missile.
While still out to destroy the evil Umbrella Corporation, Alice joins a group of survivors living in a prison surrounded by the infected who also want to relocate to the mysterious but supposedly unharmed safe haven known only as Arcadia.
Paul W.S. Anderson
A virus has escaped in a secret facility called "The Hive," turning the staff into hungry zombies and releasing the mutated Lab "Animals" that they were studying. The complex computer shuts down the base to prevent infection. The parent corporation sends in an elite military unit, where they meet Alice, who is suffering from amnesia due to exposure to nerve gas. The military team must shut down the computer and get out, fighting their way past zombies, mutants, and the computer itself, before the virus escapes and infects the rest of the world. Alice must also come to terms with her slowly-returning memories. Written by

At the beginning of the 21st century, the Umbrella Corporation had become the largest commercial entity in the United States. Nine out of every ten homes contain its products. Its political and financial influence is felt everywhere. In public, it is the world's leading supplier of computer technology, medical products, and healthcare. Unknown, even to its own employees, its massive profits are generated by military technology, genetic experimentation, and viral weaponry.

Resident Evil is probably my favorite zombie movie next to Planet
Terror. It had flaws, some acting was poor, but still was one great
time from start to finish and excellently crafted entertainment!!!!! It
had wonderful action, nice gore and the performances overall were
exceedingly decent for what they needed to be for a video game
adaptation. I especially love Michelle Rodriguez's portrayal of Pain;
I first thought when I was watching this film that it was going to be
an over-the-top gore movie with way to much blood and carnage, not so
much as focusing on the main point of the story, but it turned out
unimaginably well, for I thought it wasn't going to be that good at
all, and the complexity and edgy scenes and screenplay surprised me.
Milla Jovovich and Michelle Rodriguez acted wonderfully in this film
and this was a great action\horror movie that I am extremely glad I was
able to have seen, and will gladly see over and over again.
