  4. World War Z

    World War Z

    World War Z was not the zombie apocalypse masterpiece we wanted–but it might very well have been the one we deserved. Initially, we were heartbroken when we found out how far the film strayed away from Max Brook’s epic novel by going in the most convenient direction imaginable. Then there was the PG-13 rating, cartoonish-looking zombies, non-existent gore, and the generic rah-rah American nationalism. But as a sheer spectacle, War World Z is surprisingly effective. The set pieces are sensational and the action scenes are relentlessly intense and often quite scary. There are very few horror films that are able to deliver pulse-pounding excitement at this epic of a scale, and for that, we love this movie.

  6. Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City

    Resident Evil Welcome to Raccoon City

    The development of the first Resident Evil, released as Biohazard in Japan, began in 1993 when Capcom’s Tokuro Fujiwara told Shinji Mikami and other co-workers to create a game using elements from Fujiwara’s 1989 game Sweet Home. When in late 1994 marketing executives were setting up to release Biohazard in the United States, it was pointed out that securing the rights to the name Biohazard would be very difficult as a DOS game had been registered under that name, as well as a New York hardcore punk band called Biohazard. A contest was held among company personnel to choose a new name; this competition turned up Resident Evil, the name under which it was released in the west. Resident Evil made its debut on the PlayStation in 1996 and was later ported to the Sega Saturn. Wikipedia
