Storyline

Sharon Da Silva believes that she is on the run with her adoptive father because he killed a man in self-defense when she was young.

The revelation leads her deeper into a demonic world that threatens to trap her forever in a place known as Silent Hill. Written by Anonymous

Despite the fact that Harry constantly warns Heather not to visit Silent Hill, the shopping mall sequence implies that Silent Hill's supernatural forces can still reach out to her which means it would be pointless to avoid the town. See more »

Stop... Please, just stop.
27 October 2012 | by (England) – See all my reviews

I'm going to forget for a second that I've played Silent Hill, I'm going to switch off my brain and look at this film as a standalone project, a generic horror film about a creepy town called Silent Hill.

And as somebody who has forgotten all knowledge of the game series that this film is based on, it would be nice if the film itself could fill me in on the situation a little, instead of throwing 3d effects at the screen and trying (Poorly) to relay a story that makes so little sense that it almost becomes funny.

Things happen for no reason and have little build-up or explanation, and it isn't too enjoyable thanks to the hokey acting from the majority of the cast, even stars like Sean Bean and Kit Harington turned in mediocre performances, though with the writing the way it was one can't exactly blame them.

Now as someone who has seen the first film, this "sequel" (With the most original sequel name ever might I add) has little to do with the first. Sure it is set in the same place and some situations are repeated but it doesn't continue the flow of the first, nor does it follow any of the momentum. The first ended in a bitter way that held no real place for a sequel to come in, so this whole film just seems tacked on for some extra cash.

But I'm sure the real problem here is the shameless butchering of source material.

If this film went under any other name or concept, it would be a badly acted straight to DVD movie that only plays on the Sci-fi channels, but because of the capitalisation on the name "Silent Hill" and the intellectual property of its creators, this film has been given a free pass, a pass which it did not use wisely.

Once again, without any spoilers, it is safe to say that this film does nothing in the ways of conveying the moods and feelings of any of the original games, nor does it try to follow any of their stories, which would be just fine if they didn't spend every other minute shoving fan- service in my face, as if to say "Look! Remember this from the game? So do we! Take a good long look at it!"

Worst of all, the little nods that it gives to the game series are such big parts of the plot that you cannot ignore the fact that they are being used completely out of context, and it gets avid gamers like me really mad.

All in all, newcomers to the series who like horror films will have a tough time understanding it, people who enjoyed the first film will probably lose interest fast, and anyone who has played the games will spend the entire film sitting in frustration. It is an unpleasant experience, and I would recommend that nobody watches this, not even to see how bad it is, because I don't think the Silent Hill community will be very pleased with another sequel.
