Customer Reviews

Great story line, awesome images, disturbing special effects and good acting.
Fritz Von Steiger
Those who have not played the video games may feel a bit confused about things in the movie, but those who have played the games will likely come out very satisfied.
Fallensbane
Silent Hill, it turns out is a dead town, consumed by an underground mine fire, and is fenced off from civilization.

First with regard to Blu-Ray, I suspect the above reviewer was using an inferior television. The picture was sharp and superb almost to the point of distraction sometimes, but I suppose that's the point of using Blu-Ray.

As for the movie, when I saw it had Radha Mitchell (from Pitch Black) and Sean Bean I knew that this would not be a standard shocker, and I was not disappointed.

The movie throws subtle clues about what's going on to accumulate and fall together at the end for a touching and rewarding 'wow'. This movie stuck with me through the night after I watched it and put all the pieces together neatly with appreciation for the writing as well as the directing and acting.

I'm extremely pleased I waited for this movie to come out on blu-ray before I saw it, too.

Silent Hill is a movie based on a video game.

Still reading? Good, because you will be pleasantly surprised to learn that, unlike every other video game-based movie ever made, this is a great film! And it's a great film that fans of the game can enjoy as well as moviegoers who never heard of the game (or who have been offended by the drek that usually comes to the theaters in the guise of video game movies).

Silent Hill is a ghost town that was abandoned in the seventies because of an underground coal fire and now haunts the nightmares of a little girl. In an attempt to help her adoptive daughter Sharon (Jodelle Ferland), Rose (Radha Mitchell) takes her to Silent Hill and enters a nightmare-like alternate reality. Going any further into the plot would spoil the surprises in this film and the surprises are part of the fun.

The creatures that inhabit this alternate Silent Hill are very disturbing and nightmarish and they move in a very fluid way that is both familiar and strange at the same time. Seeing them in action (and, unlike most horror films, in full lighting) causes an almost immediate flight or fight reaction until the rational side of your brain remembers that it's only a movie.

Also on the plus side is the music of Silent Hill. Very creepy, very fitting, and, very good; at least half of the reason this film works so well is because the music and sound effects do so well in conveying the sense that something is moving just beyond your vision.

There is a downside to the film and it occurs almost dead center in the film. The beginning and ending of the movie is rife with psychological-based horror, and creatures dredged up from the depths of nightmares.

Loosely based on a video game of the same name, Silent Hill is a film that most people have concluded that they either like or hate. The former tend to be a demographic that have played the original game, or games from the series (there have been 4 made thus far), I would fall into this category. The latter are your horror film fans looking for the next great flick but have no prior context of the Silent Hill lore. Though created by a Japanese video game developer, Konami, the Silent Hill series has always had a Western flavor of horror which has created a greater than cult following here in the States and gives it an innate edge as a film adaptation for Western movie-goers. And unlike its distant, but most relatable relative Resident Evil (another survival/horror game-to-movie), Silent Hill was a cinematic thriller as a game and overflowing with potential to be transitioned to theaters. Director Christophe Gans makes an admirable attmept, but Silent Hill fails to be as great as it could have been.

The movie begins with a little girl, Sharon, sleepwalking and having nightmares and the only thing her parents, Rose and Christopher, can figure out is it must have something to do with "Silent Hill" as she is heard repeating this during her spells. Okay, so what is Silent Hill? By doing a google search, Christopher, along with the viewer, learns that Silent Hill is an abandoned, haunted town in West Virginia. Not even 10 minutes later, movie time of course, Rose is already taking her daughter to this mysterious place in attempt to try to help her daughter with whatever is ailing her. While clearly making everything seem rushed and unbelievable this started the movie off on the wrong foot and the choice of sequencing was unnecessary to begin with.

I am a fan of the Silent Hill games.

I read nothing but negative critics about this movie and I thought it might be a bad one... until I saw it. This one is an outstanding work. The story is unique and brilliant, as well as the acting, even the smallest parts are played by very talented actors. The director took care of all the details to make a perfect and scary movie about Silent Hill. Amazing. Can't wait to get the R2 version.

As for the statement saying this is a highly profeminist and christian movie... that has got to be the most unitelligent comment ive ever read. Don't let nonsense like that turn you off!!

As many reviews will tell you - this movie is only fully appreciated by the Silent Hill players. I personally only played Silent Hill 4 for a few days and still loved this movie. I even went back for a second time while it was in theatres.

The entire movie's got this atmosphere to it that's haunting -but also very visually stunning and appealing. Call it.. morbid beauty. But aside from that, the acting is great, and the plot plays out with a sense of mystery that leaves you to use your head (that might turn off some people?)

One thing that I like about the Silent Hill movie is that the horror isnt based around killing or gore. Its a kindof horror that leaves you thinking "What the...?" or something along those lines. For any fans of a good, thrilling, dark, scary movie - you'll love this one!! BUY IT!!
