A loan officer who evicts an old woman from her home finds herself the recipient of a supernatural curse. Desperate, she turns to a seer to try and save her soul, while evil forces work to push her to a breaking point.
After the continuous sleep walking episodes of Sharon, the young daughter of Rose Da Silva, the decision is made to take Sharon to the place only mentioned in her restless dreams- Silent Hill. However, the road to Silent Hill is anything but easy to access, and Rose creates a high speed chase between herself and a police officer only to end in a crash for them both. When she wakes up, Sharon has disappeared and Rose is at the entrance to the deserted, dream-like town of Silent Hill. As Rose begins the search for her daughter, she does not realize the terror and mystery surrounding her. Rose is led on a blind search for her beloved daughter, finding herself getting more and more entwined into disturbing past of Silent Hill. Written by

In the final scene, when the congregation has gathered, a phrase written in Latin is visible around the ceiling of the main chamber. It reads, "Domine Deus Omnipotens in Cuius Manu Omnis Victoria Consistit..." Translated this is "O Lord God Almighty, in Whose Hand all Victory Rests..." This is a portion of an old English Prayer from the Pre-Conquest period. The rest may read "... and all war is destroyed, grant me that Thy hand may strengthen my heart so I may fight well and act courageously so my enemies may fall before my sight." See more »
When Christopher asks about Sharon at the garage, the mechanic is working on a Dodge Magnum with a West Virginia license plate on the front of the car. West Virginia doesn't issue front license plates. See more »

The first segment of the end credits plays out much like the end credits of the games. See more »
I'm not sure what the original comment leaver saw last night, but it certainly wasn't Silent Hill.
I saw a critic screening last night, and must say I was highly impressed. As a fan of the games, and anything related to them, my faith has been firmly established in Gans and Avery, and I can only wish for sequels.
The atmosphere was perfect, the acting was on point, the creatures were amazing, well, everything was amazing.
The town itself looks just like the town we love, and it's almost like coming home again. You'll see what I mean when you finally get to see the film.
Just be prepared for a disturbing, bloody (oh man, the blood), and genuinely creepy ride.
I'd say more, but giving spoilers would be like slapping you in the face.
Go see it!
