This is one of the 4 featurettes(and at 11 minutes, albeit the last one is credits, it's longer than the other 3 combined, which come to 8 and a half. The others go into, as titled, costumes, set design and the last is simply zombie camera tests) on the DVD(and apparently also the Special Edition & Deluxe Edition) for the original 2002 picture in the Resident Evil Collection(shouldn't it be Quadrilogy, like with Aliens? Did they expect Afterlife to be the last one they'd be able to make? ...y'know, I can actually see why, really, each of these should get people to give up on the series), which has the first four movies in the series, with extras for all, though not quite in equal amounts.
It's made up of film clips and interviews with the crew listed here on the page(well, the three of them, see next line). They talk about emulating John Carpenter(who I doubt is happy to be referenced or have archive footage featured... that's the thing with being an incredibly influential film-maker, sometimes, the person you inspire, is Paul W.S. Anderson) in the score. Electronic, tense. Manson describes wanting to make it different from his own music, but still exciting. Distinct themes to the various ones. Some biological, others fascist, or child-like. Approaching it from a scoring, not a song, point of view. Driving dogs insane(no, you read that right. I present it here, devoid of context). It an interesting watch, about one of the best aspects of the Milla Jovovich vehicle.
There is some swearing in this. I recommend it to those who want to know more about the series. 7/10
