Trivia

Around 100 different copies of Rose's outfit were made. This started out with soft summery colors, and as the movie progressed, this became grayer and eventually blood red. The change in the outfits were so subtle that this was barely noticeable. See more »

Goofs

The film is supposed to take place in West Virginia, yet all the local townspeople have distinguishable Canadian accents - the movie's primary filming location. See more »

Alternate Versions

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.

Best Game Movie Adaptation Yet!
20 April 2006 | by SadisticCaberetSee all my reviews

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!
