Abstract: »In "'My name is Alice and I remember everything!' Surviving Sexual Abuse in the Films," James Stone focuses on the connection between sexual assault and the idea that Alice is often rendered childlike while facing domineering patriarchs. He concludes that Resident Evil, unlike real life, offers the audience a place where the demons of carnal violence can be defeated.« (Source: Nadine Farghaly. »Introduction: Unraveling the Resident Evil UniverseUnraveling Resident Evil: Essays on the Complex Universe of the Games and Films.
