Miziker Entertainment Brings Resident Evil to Terrorize Universal Studios Japan

Osaka, Japan — Miziker Entertainment has turned Gramercy Park at Universal Studios Japan into “Raccoon City” from Capcom’s Resident Evil game franchise, and created a live event inside the Terminator 2:3D theater, with all new sound design, video segments, and a horror maze. The cast of 35 includes stunt performers, actors, zombie contortionists, parkour “freerunners”, and costumed creatures that emerge from the darkness.
Outside, there are over 200 feet of animated architectural projection mapping generated by 32 20K projectors mounted on rooftops. The sound design from the Dreams Are Universal stage and parade route is all original.

The park has seen over 40,000 guests at 6pm each night and Biohazard runs from now until November 11 as part of Halloween Horror Nights. The maze is designed for 1600 guests per hour, in groups of 200.
Biohazard has a huge fan base in Japan and Miziker Entertainment worked closely with Capcom to bring the world of the video games to life.
