George A. Romero's Resident Evil


Recommended Posts

I recently found out that director George A. Romero (Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Creepshow, Bruiser, and the rarely seen but truly amazing Knight Riders) was commissioned by Capcom to make the Resident Evil movie and was talked into writing a screenplay which was dropped in favor of the version we all know and... well we all know it.

 

I read this and it's pretty good. It's a good adaptation of the game and doesn't have overly-badass female co-stars, ambiguos lesbian subtext, ripoffs of the movie Cube, camera cutaways for gorey scenes, Alice and Wonderland references. It's the movie the first one should have been.

 

It can be found here:

It's basically the first game but Romero took some liberties. The only reason given was that it wasn't what Capcom was looking for. (Apparently relatively bloodless zombie mutilation, overly badass females, and horribly fake-looking CG monsters were)
