In 1997, successful producer Bernd Eichinger acquired the rights to the horror classic “Resident Evil”. A six-part film series, a reboot film and various animated films later, the first TV series appears – already one of the worst-rated TV series of all time on the Internet!
Fans have been waiting for this for a long time: “Resident Evil”, the popular video game series, is launched as a TV series. But the audience echo is devastating. “Absolute crap” and “total flop” are the nicest descriptions.
Successful producer Bernd Eichinger acquired the film rights to the video game classic in 1997. A six-part film series, a reboot film and various animated films later, it was certainly only a matter of time on the executive floor of Constantin Film before the successful franchise was processed for the streaming service market. In the end, Netflix won the contract.
Everything should be new, hip and contemporary. The result of this creative and artistic process can now be admired in eight episodes. But if dialogues are more creepy than zombies, then maybe you should do your homework in terms of horror at Constantin Film. On the Internet, “Resident Evil” is already one of the worst rated TV series of all time!
A detailed review of “Resident Evil” by Ronny Rüsch and Axel Max – now in a new episode of the ntv podcast “Oscars & Raspberry”. Also included: “Apart from Life”, the directorial debut of Robin Wright, as well as the film drama “Pig” with Nicolas Cage.
