evil dead 2 4k trailer

Evil Dead and Evil Dead 2 are very different films, even if they’re essentially telling the same story. Sam Raimi‘s first Evil Dead is attempting to be a serious horror movie, while Evil Dead 2 slips into slapstick comedy territory. That slapstick angle seems to be the one people remember the most when they think of Evil Dead, making the sequel the far more prominent film. Now Studio Canal is releasing an Evil Dead 2 4K Blu-ray in the 4K, and there’s a new trailer ready to swallow your soul. Watch the Evil Dead 2 4K trailer below.

Resident Evil recap

Over the course of five Resident Evil movies, we still haven’t learned a whole lot about Alice (Milla Jovovich). She’s a character driven more by action, but her actions often don’t define her in any substantial or tangible ways. She’s often shooting her way through these movies — mostly surviving, rarely evolving.

The character is always on the move. She’s nearly always driving the story, creating more action than waiting to react. Alice rarely stops to doubt her missions or to self-reflect or chit-chat. This character and these movies aren’t prone to slowing down and stopping, unless it’s for exposition. Perhaps you’ve forgotten some of that exposition and pertinent information after all these years since the last installment in the series, 2012’s Resident Evil: Retribution.

If you want to brush up on the events of the franchise before seeing director Paul W.S. Anderson‘s Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, then give our Resident Evil recap a look.
