Like Resident Evil, the Underworld film started out in the early part of 2000 and featured a strong female lead. Rather then zombies, we see vampires and werewolves featured, with Kate Beckinsale as Selene, a Death Dealer who kills Lycans (werewolves) who she believes killed her family.
The first film, Underworld, directed by Len Wiseman and written by Danny McBride sees Selene hunting Lycans. With a budget of just $22 million the film went on to gross $95 million, although critics generally were negative. The rich visuals and gothic styling, however, stood out and were praised.
