Resident Evil: Apocalypse, the second installment in the popular Resident Evil series, is a 2004 science fiction/horror film directed by Alexander Witt. During a T-virus outbreak in Umbrella Corporation's underground complex called the Hive, the workers turn into terrifying zombies. A survivor of the initial underground outbreak, Alice (Milla Jovovich), now wakes up in a deserted hospital to discover that the virus has spread past the Hive. Officials have quarantined Raccoon City, and the citizens are struggling to survive as they battle the zombie horde. When the creator of the T-virus, Dr. Charles Ashford (Jared Harris), asks Alice to rescue his young daughter, she accepts the quest in exchange for the promise that he will evacuate her from the infected area. Joined by a group of fellow survivors, Alice must battle her way past bloodthirsty zombies and face off against the Umbrella Corporation's newest weapon in order to break free from Raccoon City.
