Do you have to watch the Resident Evil MOVIES in order?

The movie franchise follows two timelines. If you are already familiar with the video games, then you will be definitely confused with the plot in the movies.

Apocalypse, which came out in 2004 directly proceeds the original movie.  The sequels that followed, also follow the same chronological order.  In the first movie, a team struggles to quarantine the T-Virus from leaving The Hive.  In the next sequel, the T-Virus escapes, and in later movies, it eventually infects the whole world.  If you started watching in the middle of the series, it’s unlikely you’ll be able to properly follow the story’s timeline.

So, do watch the movies in their order to thoroughly enjoy the series.

How many Resident Evil movies are there currently?

There are at present 7 movies in the franchise. There are also numerous animated movies and with the 2021 reboot happening with Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, we can surely expect many more to come.

Fun Fact

One of the main differences between the game that the movie is based on and the movie itself, is, the game developers just couldn’t figure our whether the game is about zombies or is it about viruses. In fact, the game had actually 9 viruses in total and still counting. The movie franchise on the other hand concentrated only on 1 virus.
