2008’s original “Resident Evil” CG movie “Resident Evil: Degeneration” (aka “Biohazard: Degeneration” in its native Japan) certainly had its moments, and I thoroughly enjoyed much of it. Another plus: the movie didn’t seem to be running around chasing its own tail like the live-action movie franchise seems to be doing at the moment. (Read my review of “Degeneration” here.)
But with the return of Paul W.S. Anderseon’s “Resident Evil: Afterlife”, which has enjoyed a nice opening weekend, it appears the time is right for a sequel to “Degeneration”, even if the two franchises couldn’t be more different in terms of direction.
Of course, it helps that “Degeneration’s” DVD sales has reached 1.6 million copies globally. As a result, Capcom and Sony have decided the time is right to make another “RE” CG movie.
The sequel will be called “Resident Evil: Damnation”, and Leon S. Kennedy will return to slay more zombies. No word on the return of spunky civilian Claire Redfield, though.
