Resident Evil: Damnation infects DVD, Blu-ray this September


Capcom and Sony Pictures will subject home audiences to new horrors when they release Resident Evil: Damnation on DVD and Blu-ray September 25. The CG film is the follow-up to 2008's Resident Evil: Degeneration, which by 2010 had shipped over 1.6 million copies and grossed ¥40 million ($509K) during its "2-week / 3-screen theatrical release in Japan."

The Damnation disc includes bonus content like the "Las Plagas: Organisms of War" featurette and a voice gag reel ... which we take to mean a segment where voice-actors are being silly, and not just a clip of them gagging.

For those with Netflix, feel free to watch Degeneration here. Also, we apologize in advance for linking you to it.
