Resident Evil: The Game and Movie That Inspired the Horror Hit

The term “survival horror” first entered mainstream usage with the release of Resident Evil, the now-iconic 1996 zombie apocalypse action game that was released for the original PlayStation. Throughout the game, you play as either Chris Redfield (Scott McCulloch) or Jill Valentine (Una Kavanagh) as they navigate an expansive, derelict mansion overrun by an infestation of the undead. According to data released by Capcom, Resident Evil sold over five million copies in its initial release, landing it in the top 20 best-selling PlayStation games of all time. On the back of this, survival horror became firmly cemented as a genre that gamers couldn’t get enough of, and Resident Evil became a hugely popular franchise that helped to kick-start a resurgence in the popularity of zombie-related films, games, and series all throughout the 1990s and 2000s.
