What game is it based on?
Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccon City is based on the first two video games in the franchise. During an interview with IGN, Johannes Roberts explained the main differences between his film and those films that starred Milla Jovovich. “I wanted to make a more terrifying movie than an action movie. The remake of the second game has influenced me a lot and I really wanted to illustrate the same atmosphere that it had “, he assured.
Then he added: “The previous movies were very bright whereas this movie wanted it to be dark and dirty, completely shot at night. It rains constantly and the city is shrouded in fog. Films like The Exorcist or The Shining influenced me enormously ”.
