In the original script for the film, Rose was supposed to take Sharon to a faith healer since Sharon was terminally ill and beyond medical help. They would just end up in Silent Hill by chance. See more »
When Rose crashed her jeep from overturning steering wheel & losing control, it's obvious the vehicle ran into a ditch (at least its driver side front wheel). When she woke up later, the vehicle was perfectly level on the road, no wheel in any ditch at all. See more »
Rose Da Silva:
Sharon! She's not here! Oh, God. Christopher, can you see anything? Sharon! Sharon!

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.

Fans of the game will enjoy this film. Critics should be impressed with the set design, effects and cinematography; but I'm afraid most of them will miss the boat entirely. As far as a game to film translation, this is one of the best ever made.
There are scenes in the film that are direct recreations from the game. Sounds, music, colors and even meticulous set design that pays homage to the game series. In as far as a horror film, there were scenes in this movie that are incomparable. Really disturbing, solid moments of horror.
Pyramid Head is this decade's Pinhead. A new cultural icon to be feared, and loved.
Good movie. Keep an open mind, and enjoy. This is one of those films that actually deserves its R rating. Don't take the kids, unless you're into the whole "terrible parent" thing.
