“It was a huge burden.” The director explains what was most difficult about filming Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City.

Resident Evil Director: Welcome to Raccoon City recently talked about what made him the hardest to make a movie.

Johannes Roberts has already directed several horror films, but it seems like he only recently felt the weight of the genre. His latest film has recently been released – the adaptation of the Resident Evil games. In an interview, the director said what was most difficult for him while working on “Welcome to Raccoon City”:

“The biggest challenge that feared me the most was the zombie theme itself, which I didn’t know about until we filmed the attack on the police station. […] I was standing there, zombies were pushing, and suddenly I realized that I was wearing 60 years of zombie films. You have to do it right, you have to bring something fresh to start scaring you again. At first, people were afraid of zombies, then they stopped being afraid, and zombies became an element of comedy. Everything was there. […] I remember that day exactly. I remember thinking, “God, if I fuck, I’m going to have big problems. People will kill me. It was a huge burden. “

– said the film’s director Johannes Roberts in an interview with Game Informer .

The first reviews of Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City show that the director is up to the task. Critics emphasize, in particular, a good production atmosphere, as well as a fairly faithful presentation of the first games in the RE series.
