In a world ravaged by a virus infection, turning its victims into the Undead, Alice continues on her journey to find survivors and lead them to safety. Her deadly battle with the Umbrella Corporation reaches new heights, but Alice gets some unexpected help from an old friend. A new lead that promises a safe haven from the Undead takes them to Los Angeles, but when they arrive the city is overrun by thousands of Undead - and Alice and her comrades are about to step into a deadly trap.

This disc also includes eight deleted scenes, seven featurettes, an "Undead Vision" Picture-in-Picture Video, filmmaker and cast commentary, a blooper reel, and movieIQ+sync, which allows users to access real time information on the cast, music, trivia, and more while watching the movie via BD-Live.

Also included on the disc is a teaser trailer for a new GC-animated installment in the Resident Evil franchise, Resident Evil: Damnation.
