Face-off_ resident evil vs. underworld – horror movie news _ arrow in the head hives in kids

More than a decade ago, Paul W.S. Mild hives on baby Anderson and Len Wiseman both began franchises that center on badass female leads taking on various types of monsters – in 2002, Anderson dropped Milla Jovovich into a world inspired by the RESIDENT EVIL video game series, while Wiseman put Kate Beckinsale in the middle of a war between vampires and werewolves in 2003’s UNDERWORLD. Infant hives Jovovich and Beckinsale have both gone on to star in multiple sequels to those films, with the latest installments of the RESIDENT EVIL and UNDERWORLD sagas set to be in theatres by the end of January. Causes of hives in dogs But before we see UNDERWORLD: BLOOD WARS (which opens this Friday) or RESIDENT EVIL: THE FINAL CHAPTER (January 27), let’s take a look back at where it all began for these franchises and see which one got off to the better start.

The most obvious thing this film does to set up a franchise is to introduce the Umbrella Corporation, a supplier of computer tech and medical products in public but which is making their real money off their secret work in military tech and genetic experiments.

Hives face treatment As this movie ends, you might expect her to show up in a sequel simply because she survived, but there’s no indication that the character will become anything special.

The promise of seeing werewolves fighting vampires draws the audience in, but around this concept Len Wiseman, Kevin Grevioux, and Danny McBride built a world worthy of a role playing game, with enough drama, grudges, double crosses, back room dealings, and tales of star-crossed lovers to fuel a soap opera, let alone a franchise of films. Hives in dogs There’s a lot to dig into here, with the centuries-long werewolf/vampire war providing plenty of story potential, especially once it’s revealed that not everyone is as they seem.

Kate Beckinsale’s Selene is a super-powered, highly capable killer who has been dedicated to eradicating werewolves for centuries, ever since the beasts murdered her family and a wolf-hunting bloodsucker turned her into a vampire.

Back when the films were first released, I enjoyed RESIDENT EVIL more than I enjoyed UNDERWORLD, but the tables turned somewhat when the time arrived to assemble this Face-Off. Hives dry skin rash Putting the two directly against each other, I found UNDERWORLD to be the better film, with more going on, a more interesting story and heroine, and better action sequences. Hives from allergies I still prefer RESIDENT EVIL’s shambling zombies over UNDERWORLD’s versions of vampires and werewolves, but the latter film provided more entertainment this time around.
