Anna Rydell returns home to her sister (and best friend) Alex after a stint in a mental hospital, though her recovery is jeopardized thanks to her cruel stepmother, aloof father, and the presence of a ghost in their home.
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

This movie was amazing. Beginning to end it had me drawn in. This movie
breaks the rules and thinks outside the box...and gets away with it.
Maybe not a blockbuster, but definitely a cult classic :D To other
reviewers: Please, do a little research before you cut the movie off at
the knees. 1st off they're not Christian fanatics, they're another
cult. Secondly, not everything is movies are based on real things.
Certain things can be completely fictional. The movie was made to have
that dream/nightmare feel. It was an amazing movie if you actually paid
attention to it, and I'm sorry if your feeble mind cannot comprehend
what is going on. As for the part where they tell you the back-story,
it had nothing to do with anyone not knowing what was going on. Konami
as well as Sony loved it so much they didn't cut anything. That is why
the movie is so long. Not to mention this is a European FILM!!!!
Japanese horror, European writers and actors with few Americans (yeah
some of the actors were but they don't write the film). The movie is
supposed to make you sit back and go "what the ****??" when things
randomly happen...that's what Silent Hill is all about. This isn't your
run-of-the-mill horror "horny teen" slasher film (which unfortunately
is what's most popular in America). If you can, go to a matinée where
you can watch it without all of the people who think they're in MST3k
and all of the people who feel the need to talk to the screen. The
story is deep, really deep. The ending is tragic. And if you still
don't get it, it doesn't mean the movie sucked...it just means you
don't get it.
