Filming in Brantford, Ontario, Canada lasted four days. The decaying downtown strip that was used for most of the film is a section of Colbourne Street. This was picked as such because not many modifications were needed as that area of the downtown was already in a state of decay (but has since been cleaned up considerably) and consisted mostly of abandoned buildings that could be 'dressed' easily for filming.

In Canada, there is rumored to exist an extended cut of the film which runs approx. 132 minutes. It is also said to be the full uncut version of the film itself, which to this day, has never been released outside Canada. This version, being the full version of the movie that was filmed contains longer, sometimes more explicit scenes, more disturbing features (as well as extended scenes that explain everything unlike in the American Theatrical Cut) that was possibly all cut to prevent an NC-17 rating in the USA.

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!
