What We Know About Resident Evil
The zombie fiction genre is making a comeback, and Resident Evil is leading the charge. The roughness, gore, and intense action-packed campiness of Resident Evil is largely responsible for the franchise’s enduring popularity; and legendary status in the world of video games. The results of Netflix’s adaptation of the Resident Evil franchise are fascinating to say the least.
The first five successful games are all set in and around the fictitious metropolis of Raccoon City; which is located in the middle of the United States and is where the villainous Umbrella Corporation conducts biological research. The T-virus, which is a mutagenic chemical, is the agent behind all of the zombies and other creatures that are on the hunt for the heroes.
The Raccoon City Police Department has a special operations section called S.T.A.R.S; and some of the characters in the story are members of this organization.
Other characters, however; are just regular people who have been drawn into the proceedings by outside forces. These ideas and discussions are going to be included into Resident Evil.
