The new Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City movie is probably the one that comes closest to video games compared to previous film adaptations of the franchise. Comme we saw it in the second trailer for the live-action film of Resident Evil , the film takes all the ingredients of the games: zombie dogs, Raccoon's police station City, the Lickers, Spencer Mansion, etc.

Director Johannes Roberts has incorporated several winks into the film. To discover all the easter eggs and immerse yourself entirely in the horror universe, you can discover or revisit several games of the franchise on which the film was based. Resident Evil is a saga cult which has sold over 100 million copies and is now back in force with its various adaptations.
Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City is inspired by the first games of the franchise
The movie Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City is strongly inspiredNot from the original Resident Evil released in 1996 . S.T.A.R.S Special Police Unit is investigating another missing unit before being chased by zombie dogs. Chris Redfield and his colleagues take refuge in the Spencer mansion. They then discover the secret experiments carried out by the Umbrella Corporation.
In addition, Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City also echoes Resident Evil 2 released in 1998 . This opus introduced the characters Claire Redfield and the policeman Leon Scott Kennedy who are evidently found in the film. Instead of playing Resident Evil 3: Nemesis released in 1999, you can go directly to Resident Evil: Code Veronica (2000) which features Claire Redfield in the first part, then her brother Chris in the second.
Finally, the remakes of Resident Evil and Resident Evil 2 are available if you want to discover them before seeing the film. Resident Evil: Code Veronica hasn't had the right to its remake yet, at least for now. The next planned franchise remake is that of Resident Evil 4 which could be released in 2022 . If you also want to discover the horror universe independently of the film, Resident Evil Village demo released this year is available on all platforms.
