Halloween: Silent Hill

Welcome To The World of Silent Hill

Silent Hill is a 2006 horror film directed by Christophe Gans and written by Roger Avary. The film is a live-action adaptation of the survival horror video game Silent Hill, created by Konami. The film, particularly its emotional, religious, and aesthetic content, includes elements from Silent Hill, Silent Hill 2, 3, and 4. The film stars Radha Mitchell, Laurie Holden, Jodelle Ferland, Alice Krige, Sean Bean and Deborah Kara Unger. The film follows Rose, who takes her adopted daughter Sharon to the town of Silent Hill, for which the latter cries while sleepwalking. Arriving at Silent Hill, Rose is involved in a car accident and awakens to find Sharon missing; while searching for her daughter, she fights a local cult while uncovering Sharon’s connection to the town’s past.Development of Silent Hill began in the early 2000s. After attempting to gain the film rights to Silent Hill for five years, Gans sent a video interview to them explaining his plans for adapting Silent Hill and how important the games are to him. Konami awarded him the film rights as a result. Gans and Avary began working on the script in 2004. Avary used Centralia, Pennsylvania as an inspiration for the town. Filming began in February 2005 with an estimated $50 million budget and was shot on sound sets and on location in Canada.

Silent Hill was released on April 21, 2006 and the film received primarily negative reviews. Critics praised the film’s visuals and criticized the film for its dialogue, plot and its runtime. A sequel titled Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, was directed by Michael J. Bassett and is due to release on October 26, 2012.

The film and the games are both great. They each have their own positive qualities. The best game by far is Homecoming! Homecoming is actually a horrific storyline that play outs like a film.

  1. Hello there, I do believe your site could possibly be having internet
    browser compatibility issues. Whenever I take a look
    at your site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in I.E., it’s got some overlapping issues.
    I merely wanted to give you a quick heads up! Aside from that, great blog!

  2. I CAN’T WAIT to see this 😀 Love the games & the first movie 🙂 xxx
