On Friday, September 21st the movie Resident Evil: Extinction was released.  It’s the third installment in the Resident Evil series.  It’s an action, horror and sci-fi thriller all rolled into one.  This movie of the “undead” zombies is just in time for the Halloween season.  The original movie, Resident Evil was released in 2002 followed by Resident Evil: Apocalypse in 2004.

The original Resident Evil made its debut in 1996 as a survival horror video game on Sony Playstation.  Here is a list of the video game sequels that followed:

Resident Evil 2 – 1998
Resident Evil 3: Nemesis – 1999
Resident Evil: Code Veronica – 2000
Resident Evil Zero – 2002
Resident Evil 4 – 2005

The movie received great reviews and took the number one spot at the box office over the weekend and grossed an estimated $24 million.  I have not seen it yet, but I did read that Resident Evil: Extinction is a must-see especially if you’re a fan of the game and to anyone who has seen the previous two movies.  It keeps up a quick pace, great action and many horrifying scares.  Sounds like you won’t be disappointed with this sequel. 
Today Resident Evil is a media franchise consisting of a survival horror video game series, comic books, novelizations, three Hollywood motion pictures, and a variety of collectibles, including action figures, game guides and publications.
