Factual error: When Red Queen is explaining about the T-Virus they say that fingernails and hair continue to grow after death. This is not correct, While it appears that they grow, its actually down to the tissue drying out and retracting. An article on the topic can be found here: https://www.bbc.com/future/article/20130526-do-your-nails-grow-after-death A super computer that is knowle. (00:56:40)

Suggested correction: The T-virus causes the hair and nails to keep growing. The nails cause scratches that can increase infection, so it benefits the T-virus.

That is not what was said at all. In the film it states that even in death, the body remains active and that hair and fingernails continue to grow, news cells are produced, and the brain holds a small electrical charge that takes months to dissipate (all of which are false). Then the T-virus provides a massive jolt to growing cells and the brain to reanimate the dead.

She says those things after they ask her what those things are. She then starts to explain how the T-virus works. She doesn't say a dead body always keeps active, she says a dead body infected with the T-virus is still active, regenerating cells, hair and fingernails continue to grow. In short, it reanimates the dead (to a degree). That's how I read it anyway.

lionhead

Where is it stated that the T Virus actually does this? Its stated that the virus reanimates the body but not sure on the other.

Continuity mistake: When Kaplan is walking through the corridor to get the EMP and head into the Red Queen's chamber, Medic's legs are together. When we see all the power shutting off, her position has changed and now her legs are apart. (00:32:40 - 00:35:50)

Factual error: Medic gets killed by the laser which cuts her head off, In doing this, her spinal cord is severed meaning her muscles would not be controlled. Yet she still manages to stay standing. (00:31:20)

Continuity mistake: When we see the extreme close up of the robotic arm picking up the blue vial, the grip is uniform and parallel to the edge of the sliver end cap on the vial. When we see the vial a second later, the arm's grip has changed and is no longer parallel or uniform on the vial. (00:02:10)

Other mistake: The elevator is falling to the floor and so the counter weight is going up. But the counterweight doesn't fall back down after all the cables have snapped. What's holding it up? (00:05:55)

Continuity mistake: Alice wakes up at the end and is completely nude with the exception of some paper taped to her front. We see when crawls under the bed that this is the case. However as she is cocking the shotgun in the streets the wind blows open to the doctor's jacket she put on earlier, but it also shows that she is now wearing white underwear to hide her modesty in case of a mishap with the wind.

Trivia: In the final scene when Milla Jovovich emerges from Racoon City Hospital into the ruined city, a newspaper blows past in the wind with the headline "The Dead Walk" - a blatant reference to George Romero's classic zombie flick "Day of the Dead" where a newspaper with the same headline blows past in the opening sequence.

Question: So when the game RE:2 came out there was an entry to win a role in the Resident Evil film. Who in this film was the winner of that contest or was a winner ever named?
