Paul W.S. Anderson
After the major disappointment which consisted of Paul Anderson's Resident Evil(s), it just so happened that I got around to see this small piece of animated film-making. I might not have seen it as it should've been seen, in an appropriate theater, but I still judge it's got more to say than Anderson's two films put together. Especially when it comes down to Resident Evil.
The plot outline says pretty much all there is to say about the things that happen in the short without giving too much a way. The disturbing encounters with all sorts of mutated animals prove to be fairly deadly for the special ops who - despite getting quite a glimpse of the sense of utmost terror - continuously strive to find the researcher.
I must say that at some points the gore crept deeply beneath my skin and it caused a most creepy feeling within. The great musical score keeps the tension high as the ops struggle to escape the hell they've entered and it's not over until the very last minute. Scary creatures, reasonably fine animation (a la RE 2), a gruesomely fun twist and some great atmospheric thrills make this Executer a worthy watch for any fan of the macabre - and most especially for Resident Evil fans.
