RESIDENT EVIL SERIES REVIEW
As if Covid wasn’t enough, it seems like Umbrella Corp. has decided to break out some of it’s old “hits” and repackage them. Remember that place called Raccoon City? Umbrella blew it up because they caused the apocalypse with the T Virus. So what’s a trillion-dollar company to do? Just walk away from that research? No, they double down and open up “New Raccoon City”, in South Africa. Then, they start producing a new drug called “JOY.” I’m sure they go through the proper channels of testing and study before releasing it. I’m absolutely sure everything will be fine this time and nothing will go wrong…. *hold for awkward silence.* Of course things will go wrong, and it’s because a bunch of whiney/moody teenagers, Jade and Billie Wesker, decide that it’s a great idea to break into a Umbrella Corporation lab and play fetch with a zombie dog. Of course, Billie gets bit and now she has 72 hours until she turns… or will she? Billie and Jade are Weskers after all. Joining us on this gross pig-out are Jena, Lewayne, and Chad. There was a lot to say on this one folks… we had to cut 5 mins out.

Chad Halvorsen (Screener Squad)
Chad Halvorsen currently resides in Milwaukee, WI, where he produces and edits commercials, films, and everything in between. He was always a fan of film/television growing up, spending days in the Summer, making (terrible) home movies with his brothers. Little did he know that passion would carry on into adulthood. Since 2006, Chad has worked for several agencies in various departments. Shooting, producing, editing, production management, directing, and when forced to, writing copy. In 2015, Chad decided to take the big leap and become a freelancer. Since then, he’s produced content for Lyft, AT&T, Target, and Discovery Network. His passion lies in entertaining people, making them feel better, even for a moment. All the pain and suffering of this business is worth it, if even just one person views his work. Chad is a frequent podcaster, most notably posing as a co-host for the podcast “The Film Illogical Society.”
Jena Perry (Screener Squad)
Jena Perry. Aka Luna. Aka Dion. Aka Memori. Aka Dog whisperer. Aka whiskey connoisseur. As you can see, depending on when you met this Oakland, California native, you have experienced a completely different person, each time. After finally deciding on a 13+year career choice as a Videographer and Radio Personality, Jena balances her time between pursuing her Doctorate in Philosophy, providing insightful and funny critiques on films and Television, raising her daughter and dog in Ohio, and constantly fighting off the existential dread that is being a dope black woman in America in the 20th century.
Lewayne White (Screener Squad)
Lewayne’s earliest memories are of watching movies and reading comics, which instilled in him a sense of wonder, a vivid imagination, and unrealistic expectations. It also means he spends a lot of time watching movies, writing scripts for them, and trying to get them made. He lives in the middle of middle America after landing there as a child, and has remained there mainly because he hates packing.
