Conceived as a sequel to Wells’ original tale, the story centers on a British nephew of the original Invisible Man. Once he discovers his uncle’s formula for achieving invisibility, he is recruited by British intelligence agency MI5 during WWII.
With the ultimate edition of Resident Evil 4 slated to arrive later this week, I thought this would be a swell time to take a look back at some of the stranger moments the series has offered us so far.
Obviously, a list that’s only six-long puts nary a dent in the weirdness and hilarity — some intentional, most of it not — that Capcom’s flagship survival horror-turned-action horror-turned-full-on action franchise has gifted us with over the years. These are just a few of my favorites, I’ll leave it to you to fill in the gaps with your own picks.
After the break you’ll find my list of just a few of the most WTF moments from Resident Evil!
One of the many aspects about horror that I fall in love with over and over again is just how beautiful it can often be. Meticulous attention is paid to the lighting, the gore, the music… The full mise-en-scène, if you will. Films like Suspiria, Pan’s Labyrinth, Se7en, Oldboy, The Shining, and many more rank amongst movies that always capture my attention not only for the horror but also because they’re just so beautiful to look at, even with all the death and violence.
It’s with that attitude in mind that I wanted to bring a list of songs that I feel had the same kind of impact, that same eeriness yet beauty. So, join me below to hear 6 Eerily Beautiful Songs! READ MORE
Sometimes there’s nothing I enjoy more than a rainy, stormy evening and a good album to pop on and lose myself in. It’s calming, it’s soothing, and it’s the best way I’ve found to completely and utterly decompress. Admittedly it’s not that often that I have a rainy day, so I take advantage of them whenever they arise. And since we’re soon going to be heading into Fall and rainy days are on the horizon, I decided that I would compile some of my favorite albums for just such an occasion. Below is a list of my 10 Albums That Are Perfect For A Rainy Day! READ MORE
When it was announced that Soilwork would be unleashing a double album as their new studio album, the metal world rejoiced. After all, one disc is already a cause for celebration, but two? The Swedish melodic metal master’s ninth studio album The Living Infinite has been one of the most anticipated releases of 2013 by many, even landing on my own list.
One of the things that gave me some trepidation was the loss of guitarist Peter Wichers, who was replaced by David Andersson, who toured with the band in 2006. Also, after the stellar The Panic Broadcast, this album has a great deal to live up to. So now we ask the hard question: does it or have Soilwork fallen short? Find out below! READ MORE
I’m one of the few people who have actually wrung some enjoyment out of the live-action Resident Evil films, but ever since the third movie they’ve only managed to get progressively worse. The latest installment, Retribution, managed to set the bar almost impressively low. It’s really too bad, because there’s a genuinely interesting fiction for Hollywood to mine, but instead we’re stuck with the same old cheesefest, complete with way too many slow motion sequences, terrible acting, laughable dialogue, and a comical mistreatment of the franchise characters. Thankfully, when it comes to the silver screen, there’s still hope left (just ignore what Resident Evil 6′s advertising tells you).
That’s where the second feature-length CGI film Damnation enters the ring, and I can guaran-damn-tee you this is the best Resident Evil movie we’ve seen, and are likely to see for some time. Check out the trailer after the break.
We’ve had two Resident Evil games come to the 3DS already and if this rumor is true we could soon be getting a third. According to a recent report from Digital Spy, which has since been taken down, Capcom has another project in the works called Resident Evil: Degeneration-Damnation-Downfall. That’s quite a mouthful. The reasoning behind the long-winded and totally not official title is it’s supposedly a bundle that will include the animated film Resident Evil: Degeneration, its upcoming sequel Damnation and a brand new game titled Resident Evil: Downfall. Apparently, Downfall will take place between the events in Resident Evil 5 and 6 and star Claire Redfield as she “witnesses the downfall of humanity.” If this is anything like the fantastic Revelations then Capcom has my full support. Anyone else interested in more 3D Resident Evil?
