From Script to Screen: The Making of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is a short documentary on the making of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. It appeared as a featurette in DVD and Blu-ray copies of the film.


The featurette begins with Jeremy Bolt describing the three narrative portions of the film - the desolate ruins of Washington, the "road movie" as Alice heads down U.S. Route 64 with Alice driving in a converted Honda and her capture, and the finally the Hive itself. The film's opening is said to have been chosen to capture the desolate mood of Washington, D.C., focusing on the many destroyed landmarks.

Clinton Aiden Smith is introduced as the Prosthetics Designer, in charge of deciding on the "look" for the Undead. He designed the Javo to be a bloated Undead, caused by being underwater for so longer. Time to make the suit was limited ahead of the shoot, however, and it had to be done in 75 hours. The stunt performer inside, Lance, was coated in slimy makeup to visually capture the Javo's deterioration. When interviewed, Ali Larter expresses her love for practical effects and sets over standing in front of a green screen.

Brent Boates is introduced as storyboardist for the film, being responsible for the general designs of the film, like the Umbrella Troop Transport.

Moving back to Jeremy Bolt, the film series is described as a blend of horror and action while also not being a conventional Zombie film series. Rather than adapt games specifically, the idea was always to use game elements in a fresh but familiar way, such as the Cerberuses in the Pit.

Actors themselves had to be trained with wires for the turbine scene due to being required to be lifted into the air, and as this was shortly after the Pit scene they had to be soaking wet before each take.

Further notes

An error is present in this featurette, which shows the Afterlife opening sequence, but marked as 2004's Resident Evil: Apocalypse.
