Goofs

Vincent claims in Revelation that the Brethren wear gas masks and miner suits because they believe they will become "corrupted by the darkness" if they don't. In the first film, the mining suits and gas masks are shown to act as a deterrent to attacking monsters in the Otherworld, and the cult's priestess, as well as several other members of the cult, are shown leaving the church without any mining gear.

Heather Mason: It is a key! What does it unlock?

Very Disappointed
20 January 2013 | by dorshezSee all my reviews

I'll first of all point out that I am quite the Silent Hill fan before explaining that this director did not get the point of Silent Hill.

The games and indeed some aspects of the last film provoked fear through the unknown, the fact that the characters were totally lost and on their own in a place where anything could happen. The creatures were scary and the less we knew about them, the scarier they were. In the last film the acting was great and there was plenty of suspense, and a decent director and art team running the project.

This one had some great visuals, the environments were great to look at. The CGI effects however, were not. Neither was the poor use of the actors talent, and the over use of extra human characters and monsters. These combined with a terrible attempt to almost follow the 3rd game TOO closely whilst remaining loyal to the first film, makes for a bad experience. It's nice to see that the director here tried to make a nice little tie in with both the games and the film, but the last film wandered into it's own little story, which luckily turned out well. he should have stuck to following the games, or the last film instead of both. Then he needed to write up some less cliché' lines for the actors.
