Was originally entitled "Resident Evil: Nemesis" after the third game in the "Resident Evil" (aka "Biohazard") videogame series, of the same name, which had a similar plot. The title was later changed to "Resident Evil: Apocalypse" after the release (and subsequent box-office failure) of Star Trek: Nemesis (2002).
The film contains many visual and thematic references to the games. Here's what references are seen from the games in storyline chronological order: All Games: There is a shot near the end of the film of Alice's eye close up. This is a reference to the first game in the series - the close up eye shot is the logo/title screen of the games, a white goddess statue can be seen in the church, Goddess statues always play a big role in the puzzles of all Biohazard games. Biohazard 0 (2002) (VG): Alice kills the Lickers in the church in a bullet time effect identical to Billy Killing the Leech Queen. Biohazard (1996) (VG) In the opening scene with the weather map and the ending, both mention the Arklay Mountains. This is where the mansion in the original game was located. Biohazard (2002) (VG) (Gamecube remake) Terri's death is recorded by her fallen camera, as is Joseph's death in the intro in the remake of the original game. Biohazard 2 (1998) (VG) Alice's visit to the gun shop may be a slight reference to Resident Evil 2, in which Kendo's Gun Shop is one of the first locations a player visits, The helicopter that delivers Nemesis' weapons is similar in look to the helicopter that delivered Mr. X in Resident Evil 2, Angela Ashford plays a character similar to Shirey Birkin from Resident Evil 2. Biohazard 3: Last Escape (1999) (VG): The sequence in which RPD members are surrounded by zombies at an intersection is taken almost shot for shot from an FMV in Resident Evil 3 (the most noticeably similar shot is the slow zoom in on the police helmet), The character of Jill Valentine wears the same outfit she wore in Resident Evil: 3, Zombies also rise from their graves in Resident Evil: 3, Jill also uses gas stoves to create an explosion in Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, Jill,Terri, Alice and Peyton hide out in a red cable-car, in Resident Evil 3 Jill, Carlos, Nicholai and Mikhial also hide out in a red cable-car and use it to get to the Clock tower. And in both Resident Evil 3 and the Movie, Nemesis shoots down a helicopter with his rocket launcher. Biohazard Code: Veronica (2000) (VG): The sequence in which Alice runs down a hallway while a helicopter shoots out the windows is identical to the opening cinema in Resident Evil: Code Veronica, Ashford is the name of the family that created Umbrella, as told in Resident Evil: Code Veronica, Alice's superhuman abilities are similar to those exhibited by Albert Wesker in Resident Evil: Code Veronica, Milla Jovovich's move in which she drops her handgun and grabs it just before hitting the ground was lifted directly from Biohazard Code: Veronica (2000) (VG) in which Claire Redfield pulls this in the opening movie and takes out a room full of guards. Miscellaneous: The idea of Dr. Ashford pulling strings to save people inside a zombie-ridden area contains shades of Trent, a character from the Resident Evil books, written by S.D. Perry. Another similarity is that Trent's parents, like Dr. Ashford, created the T-Virus for benevolent purposes before it was hijacked by Umbrella.
During the church scene, when Alice fires at the motorcycle to kill one of the Lickers, the slow motion bullets have the Umbrella logo on the rear of the shells.
The word Biohazard appears many times in the movie. This is a reference to the Japanese versions of the games. In Japan the series of games is called Biohazard.
