Raccoon City looks like one creepy place.

The upcoming reimagining of the Resident Evil series–Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City–is just a week away, and a new teaser has been dropped to keep the anticipation at a fever pitch. Check out the clip, courtesy of, on this page.

Raccoon City–which lands in theaters Nov. 24–comes from writer/director Johannes Roberts and reportedly adapts the first two games of the classic Capcom video game series. The movie will not build off the previous Paul W.S. Anderson films starring Milla Jovovich, but will stand on its own.

The Screen Gems film is set (obviously) in Raccoon City, described as once being the “booming home of pharmaceutical giant Umbrella Corporation,” but is now a “dying Midwestern town…a wasteland with great evil brewing below the surface.”

And, when that evil is unleashed, according to the official synopsis, “the townspeople are forever changed. And a small group of survivors must work together to uncover the truth behind Umbrella and make it through the night.”

Raccoon City–rated R for strong violence, gore and language–stars Kaya Scodelario as Claire Redfield, Robbie Amell as Chris Redfield, Avan Jogia as Leon S. Kennedy, Hannah John-Kamen as Jill Valentine, Tom Hopper as Albert Wesker, Neal McDonough as William Birkin, Donal Logue as Chief Brian Irons, Chad Rook as Richard Aiken, Lily Gao as Ada Wong, Nathan Dale as Brad Vickers and Marina Mazepa as Lisa Trevor.

The Resident Evil movie franchise, to date, has piled up the box office receipts, grossing $1.2 billion worldwide on a combined budget of $288 million.
