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
The German version is infamous amongst fans for its incredibly bad dubbing, with some even referring to it as a "Pornosynchro." See more »
(at around 40 mins) When Matt kneels down to examine the blood of the undead Hive worker, he claims that blood only coagulates when you're dead. In truth, coagulation is simply the process of blood clotting around a damaged vessel wall, which indeed happens in living beings. On the contrary, in death, blood doesn't coagulate, but separates, causing livor mortis. See more »
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.

Only true horror film of the franchise
A-Z Horror Movie of the Day..."Resident Evil" (R - 2002 - Blu)
A special military unit fights a powerful, out-of-control supercomputer and hundreds of scientists who have mutated into flesh-eating creatures after a laboratory accident.
"I don't want to be one of those things...walking around without a soul." One of the biggest zombie franchises and just about the biggest franchise based from a video game...this is probably the one true horror movie of the group. I came into this as a fan of the game...but left a fan of Milla Jovovich. I would cut my arm off if I was bit, but I wouldn't cut it off to see this movie...you have to draw the line somewhere.
