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!
