Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City

Deliberate mistake: In the pitch dark mansion dining room, the approaching zombie's screams are instantly interrupted by silence whenever the flame from Chris' lighter goes out, and then the screams instantly resume when the light returns. While this is obvious artistic license, for the record the level of darkness would have no bearing on whether we can hear the zombie screaming.

Trivia: The scene with Jill eating Wesker's sandwich and saying "It's Jill's sandwich now!" (although saying it quickly in such a way that you can't hear the "s" and it sounds more like "It's Jill sandwich now!") is a reference to an infamous moment in the original video game. In the game, Jill is almost crushed by a booby-trap, and the character Barry says she was "almost a Jill sandwich!" The poor dialogue and terrible delivery by the voice actor ended up making the moment a meme many years later.


Trivia: Was originally set to be produced by James Wan, but he left the project to produce the 2021 film "Mortal Kombat" - another reboot of a popular video-game-to-movie adaptation.
