In the first movie, we get to know Alice, a woman working for Umbrella corporation. Umbrella works on computer technology, medication and biotechnology and seems to be a world wide leader in all these fields. They develop the "T-virus" which is able to reanimate dead cells. Zombie fans know what this will lead to - undead animals and - due to unfortuante events- zombies!
Alice enters the underground science center called "the hive" and fights the computer surveilance sistem "red queen". I don't want to spoil the plot if there really is anyone who has not seen the movie yet, but some highlights are
- undead dobermanns
- floating scientist zombies
- an intelligent licker (which seems to be fused from several undead species)
- a zombie cure!
