I am old enough to remember when the first Resident Evil movie came out in 2002, and it was so bad that I hoped the franchise would die as quickly as possible. However, here we are, over 16 years later and it looks like I won’t be getting my wish. On June 14th, 2019, the series officially made its return to television with Resident Evil[a], and I just want to say that this show left me in shock. How could something this bad happen to an already bad franchise? The Dead Don’t Die: A Review of the New Resident Evil Series
I was never a big fan of the Resident Evil video games, but when I heard about the new Netflix series, I decided to give it a try. I’m glad I did, because it’s one of the best horror shows I’ve seen in a long time. The acting is top-notch, the special effects are amazing, and the story is really suspenseful. If you’re looking for a good horror fix, this is definitely the show for you. It doesn’t rely on cheap jump scares like so many other TV horrors. Instead, it creates a genuinely creepy atmosphere and builds up tension slowly until it reaches its climax.
It’s been three days since I finished watching all eight episodes of the first season, and I still can’t stop thinking about what might happen next – will there be another outbreak? Will they ever find the original G-Virus? What else could exist in Umbrella Corporation’s underground research facility? All these questions keep me coming back for more. In my opinion, the only downside to this show is that there isn’t any Resident Evil game tie-in. Not yet at least. But who knows what’ll happen if they keep making episodes as well as they have been!
