Dude, that's what I said - the 2002 movie is more expensive. Even though the two processes cannot really be compared beyond a certain point. In 2002, they had to use CG sparingly and rely more on practical effects (the Uber-Licker actually existed as both an animatronic and a puppet\suit). In 2020, they used CG for stuff that really didn't need it and had to cut on the practical effects (aside from the zombies, pretty much everything else is CG - Lisa is played by an actress, but that's more a matter of costume design than make-up and she's not the same creature from the games - no tentacles and disfigured face glimpsed underneath the skin mask). They are really the opposite, the Ying and the Yang. Some people online speculated WTRC was only made so that Constantin could retain the rights to the franchise (something similar happened to the Hellraiser movies) - I wouldn't be surprised if it will turn out to be true and the real goal was to get the Netflix deal for the RE series (which will probably be terrible too).Actually you can. You could do a lot more with 33 mln 2002 money than with 25 mln 2020 money, very obviously, especially if we consider Covid-related expenses in that miserable budget. 2002 movie looks way more expensive than WTRC because in fact it was way more expensive And overuse of CGI from some cheap VFX house makes any movie look cheap.
