Synopsis: Alice returns to The Hive in Raccoon city as she attempts to put a stop to the T-virus and save what remains of humanity.
Director: Paul W.S. Anderson
Runtime: 107 minutes
MPAA Rating: R
Netflix (US): No
Jump Scares: 29 (5 major, 24 minor)
Jump Scare Rating: Paul W.S Anderson has a tendency to throw 3 or 4 jump scares into a single scene. One of his favorite methods of startling the audience is to have an apparently dead creature suddenly spring back into life. Another is to add an improbably loud sound effect into a quiet scene (at one point the sound of a printer, almost comically loud, is used to execute a scare). The result of this is a movie that manages to pack almost 30 jump scares into a run time of just 1 hour 47 minutes.
