This 200 Year-Old Wicked Abandoned Mansion Inspired Resident Evil
If you've played video games in the last 20 years, you've no doubt played one of the Resident Evil games. Would you dare to look inside the mansion that inspired the game? A new exploration of this nearly 200-year-old wicked place makes that possible.
It's been 25 years since the original Resident Evil video game debuted on the first Playstation. Perhaps you didn't realize the mansion in the game was inspired by real ones. It was. As you enter the home, you'll notice that staircase looks very familiar. It should because this is how it looked in the first Resident Evil game.
Urban explorers just shared video of what the real mansion looks like in its current abandoned state.
As you can see outside the Resident Evil mansion, it is a vast real world estate.
The many staircases you have to traverse in the game? They're present in the real world, too.
The statues you'll find in the hallways aren't exactly...welcoming.
Much of the original 1820's and 30's furniture and architecture remains.
This bathroom almost looks like it could have been in the movie "The Shining".
The Resident Evil video game series debuted in 1996. Millions have players have experienced its sinister environments, but few have been in the real world locations that inspired them all...until now.
