The trailer opens with hell: an overpass through what was once a city and is now a wasteland filled with crazed undead and besieged survivors desperately fighting to escape them. In a voiceover, we hear an adult Jade explain that while “they said the world ended in 2036”, the end of the real world took place much earlier. The scene then cuts to a bright, clean city surrounded by greenery. A sign greets the approaching lone car: “Welcome to New Raccoon City.”

A new voiceover takes over: As a young Jade and her sister Billie explore their new home, a woman’s calm voice exalts the Umbrella Corporation, “a scandal-ridden company” that “is now trying to reinvent itself.” There’s an eerie, Stepford-esque air to both the voice delivery and the city shots: too clean, calm, and perfect to be quite real. The effect is only intensified when we see the speaker: presumably an Umbrella Corporation representative of some sort, she smiles softly as she says, “The things we’re working on today are going to change the world. ”


Billie holds what appears to be a strange caterpillar up to the camera and watches as it crawls across her hand. Then everything changes abruptly: the pavement cracks, the red earth bursts upwards, and we see Jade fleeing for her life from a huge, monstrous worm. This is the beginning of the end of the world that adult Jade spoke of. “We have a problem,” her father Albert says of her when we see a lab rat break the glass in her cage; then we cut to it as he soberly explains, “The drug contains a T-Virus. The T-Virus can create monsters,” he explains, and we see some of those monsters as he speaks: stumbling undead humans, a vicious undead dog. Billie appears threatened by something, and in the next shot she appears dead or unconscious; we see young Jade screaming in anguish. More disturbing images flash by: of Billie, other survivors, and various monsters, until we see adult Jade again, covered in blood. She hisses a swear word, stands up and proceeds to rip the store apart with a chainsaw. The following scenes show Jade and other people fighting the zombified hordes, interspersed with the series’ tagline: “Evil has evolved.”
