I just re-watched 1998's "Deep Rising" after a while and now I cannot escape the idea that a RE movie made in the mid-90s would've probably looked a lot like it. From the line cruiser pretty much looking like a haunted mansion (unsurprisingly, such a ship was also supposed to be the setting of the real RE3 we never got to see) to the Alien\Aliens vibes, to the "we need a card to open the door" bits to the gore (not too excessive, but pretty surprising in a movie from that era)...hell, it even has a scene very similar to Romero's script (the half-digested guy coming out of one of the tentacles\worms - in his RE script, it is Aiken after they kill Yawn). Of course, "Deep Rising" tries to lighten up the mood with humor, but that's a minor issue. Does anyone agree?
