The Resident Evil franchise is like a girlfriend I know is bad for me, but I can't quite get rid of. I dumped her in 2007, but here we are in 2010, and I get back together with her immediately. I'm even excited that this time it could really work. It's been almost 10 years, right? This has got to be the one that makes all that disappointment worth it, right?
To say that vampires are popular these days is to point out the truly obvious, with teen girls (and middle-aged women) swooning to Twilight and several vampire TV shows to choose from. With zombies going through yet another resurgence, they are often referred to in the press as "the new vampires." Writer/director/producer/editor/special and visual effects artist Kerry Prior knew this all too well, because his new movie, The Revenant, which screened at L.A.'s 2009 ScreamFest, decided to take advantage of both.
