We got our first official glimpse of Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City last month, but Capcom and Sony Pictures are refusing to rest on their laurels, as they’ve just unleashed a fresh teaser to remind all you gore-hounds out there that their highly anticipated horror reboot is still on track for its Nov. 24 cinematic release.
Go ahead and feast your eyes on the new footage down below, though beware, it’s pretty damn spooky stuff:
As you can see above, the latest teaser of Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City really leans heavily into the horror tone and vibe. A dilapidated orphanage? Check. A bunch of creepy dolls? Yes, sir. Twitching monstrous beasties? You betcha. And that’s all just within the first few seconds!
Indeed, the video soon gives way to the iconic locale of what looks to be the Spencer Mansion from the first Resident Evil titles, before ramping up the tension with a bevy of blood, guts and body horror. Yes!
Frankly, this project looks to be shaping up nicely, and I’m pretty stoked to check it out once it hits theaters exclusively on Nov. 24.
In the meantime, though, if you’re after any more information about Welcome to Raccoon City, here’s an official description courtesy of Sony Pictures:
Returning to the origins of the massively popular RESIDENT EVIL franchise, fan and filmmaker Johannes Roberts brings the games to life for a whole new generation of fans. In RESIDENT EVIL: WELCOME TO RACCOON CITY, once the booming home of pharmaceutical giant Umbrella Corporation, Raccoon City is now a dying Midwestern town. The company’s exodus left the city a wasteland…with great evil brewing below the surface. When that evil is unleashed, a group of survivors must work together to uncover the truth behind Umbrella and make it through the night.
