Resident Evil:

"Composed by the Capcom Sound Team, Masami Ueda, Makoto Tomozawa and Akira Kaida, Resident Evil’s brooding score became a benchmark for horror games, giving the original genre-defining masterpiece a persistent and unnerving sense of claustrophobia."

Resident Evil 2:

Resident Evil film reboot loses its producer

The Resident Evil film reboot has lost its producer. Reports came in that James Wan was going to handle producing duties on the reboot of the Resident Evil film franchise, but in an interview with Bloody-Disgusting, Wan confirms he has left the project.

“I’m not doing that anymore. That has been dropped. They announce that I’m attached to a lot of stuff and a lot of them are not necessarily real. It’s kind of annoying when things come and go, or things never came in the first place. I hate it when my projects get announced. It makes it seem like I’m attached to a lot of things when in fact I’m not necessarily doing so many things. A lot of my stuff just get announced and I don’t want them to be announced but people love to announce them.”
