Halloween is days away. So this is a perfect excuse to watch the Resident Evil movie with our favorite zombie dogs.
Resident Evil is the 2002 action-horror movie starring the beautiful Milla Jovovich. There are now six movies in the series. In the film, an underground research facility is contaminated by the T-virus bio-weapon. This is the virus that turns the scientists and the laboratory dogs into zombies.
What kind of dogs are in Resident Evil?
In case you don’t know, the zombie dog breed is the Doberman.
To create the zombie dogs for the movie, the Dobermans were covered with prosthetics, fake blood, and skin to give them the creepy decomposing look. The challenge for the makeup artists was that the dogs would lick and shake the makeup off.
The Dobermans used in Resident Evil were trained by Bonnie Judd. In the training video, you can watch her command her Dobermans to stay on a mark, sit, down, stay, bark, and jump on a dummy. It’s interesting to note that both these Dobermans were rescue dogs.
The videos below show the making of Resident Evil and the behind-the-scenes action. Watch how the Dobermans were trained to jump through a sugar window. Pretty impressive! They are both amazing stunt dogs! And if you’re planning on turning your dog into a zombie for Halloween, you might want to see how the pros do it.
And here is the final movie cut of the Zombie Doberman scene.
