Resident Evil Degenerates the Web

RE Done Right!If you’re lucky enough to be going to the San Diego Comic Con this year, you’ll get to see footage from the upcoming Resident Evil CGI flick Degeneration. The rest of us will just have to make do with a website and trailer.

Sony Pictures opened up the official website for RE: Degeneration, which includes a production blog, synopsis and a trailer. This first trailer for Degeneration gives me the warm tinglies inside since it has a look that stays faithful to the games for a change.

The ‘Umbrella Incident’ that took place in Raccoon City was ended with the eradication of the deadly virus by a missile attack ordered by the government. As its operations were suspended on a global scale, Umbrella Corporation stock plummeted. This serious blow to the business giant resulted in its complete dissolution.

7 years later at an airport somewhere in the United States, an ordinary autumn afternoon, one zombie is unleashed into this peaceful scene to attack everyone. In the airport starting to fill up with the undead, the horrific disaster is about to be repeat itself.

Mike Phalin

Since 1997, Michael Patrick Phalin has been a contributing writer to various websites including Dread Central, iMockery, Bloody Disgusting and KrytenSyxx. During the early 1980s, Phalin's love of the movie industry was fueled by the VHS tapes he found during his time spent at the video rental store his mother worked at. Rather than attending a daycare regularly, young Michael would form a tower of tapes with interesting cover art and go watch each one, the very first of these being the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' From that point he was hooked on horror and the process behind creating special effects. In his twenties, Mike met Steve 'Uncle Creepy' Barton and was soon aiding the horror website Dread Central with film reviews. As the site grew in popularity, Phalin soon started writing news stories and conducting interviews on a daily basis. After a few years, he decided to take a break from writing to focus on other opportunities. After moving to a beach community with his wife Michelle, both were cast to appear in the final season of A&E's home improvement show 'Fix This Yard' in 2013. This event rekindled Mike's love of the entertainment industry. Between the time he spends being with his family, Michael continues to contribute to Dread Central both with writing and photography. In his mid-thirties, Phalin took up oil painting after being inspired by an episode of Bob Ross. Pieces of his artwork and photography can be found on his Tumblr and official website.

    It’s called Resident Evil, they have my interest. I don’t care how bad the movies were, the games 1-3 + code veronica are one of the best zombie stories ever so anything carrying the name makes me sit up an pay attention.

    (To everyone who noticed I didn’t mention 4, I love that game, it is probably better than any of the others on their own but depending on how they explain some elements in 5 it is a stand alone franchise to me since the only thing in common are the characters.)

    I always wanted to see someone make a zombie-in-the-airport movie called Dead Air. Looks like this is close enough. Color me interested.
