A little girl who doesn't get enough sleep wakes up every night screaming "silent hill." One day her mother, driving through a thick fog, loses her daughter in a parallel world which hell itself would just not tolerate. Through all those atrocities and lack of trust, her daughter is living the biggest nightmare of her life. Written by
Christophe Gans was irritated by Radha Mitchell's approach to acting, which typically involved her needing several shots before she could get into character. In the DVD commentary, Gans states that it was especially difficult to film scenes with Radha and co-star Laurie Holden (Cybil Bennett), due to their very different acting techniques. See more »
The image of West Virginia on Cybil's arm patches is backwards. See more »

Silent hill isn't a horror movie its a nightmare drama
For everyone who has seen or is going to see or is thinking of seeing silent hill, do not go into it thinking ohhh its going to be a scary movie,,, because its not suppose to be. Its for intelligent drama based crowds who like good visuals, story line, acting, and mystery. This isn't doom and this isn't resident evil, this is a well written drama/mystery that happens to be very disturbing in its visual and story. People who have not played the game go see it with an open mind and not look at it as a video game movie because even without the game it could stand on its own as a great movie. So that said, if your looking for pop crap gore then don't see silent hill, if your looking for a memorable movie you well think about for years to come then do see silent hill. WELCOME TO SILENT HILL....
