18 Times Resident Evil Scared The Hell Out Of Us

List Rules
Vote up the Resident Evil moment that scared you the most.

The Resident Evil series is one of the scariest, most haunting video game series of all time. From sudden jump scares to horrifying creatures to eerie sound effects, Resident Evil games are wrought with tension. The original Resident Evil set the sinister, tense, mysterious tone of the series through dark, eerie shots of zombie and demonic dogs that jump through the window.

Sequels such as Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis upped the ante with bigger, more grotesque monsters, and traumatic moments like the bombing of Raccoon City. While later installments such as Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5 redefined the series, and took things in a more fast-paced direction. This gave us scary, action-packed moments like traversing Del Lago, or trying to evade a chainsaw wielding villager. 

The Resident Evil series knows how to make us jump and has left its mark as one of the most enduring franchises in the survival horror. What Resident Evil moment scared you the worst?
