The family's name, "Da Silva", is the most common surname in Portuguese-speaking countries such as Portugal and Brazil. Its meaning is derived from the Latin word "silva", meaning 'forest' or 'woodland'. It is also widespread in regions of the former Portuguese Empire in America (from Galicia (Spain)), Africa and Asia, including India and Sri Lanka. Movement of people has led to the name being used in many places; "da Silva" is the fifth most common surname in the French department of Val-de-Marne, outside Paris, and it was the 19th most-common family name given to newborns between 1966 and 1990 in France.

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!
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!
