The success of the original silent hill movie made me hopeful that the sequel would be just as good, if not better than the first film. And while Silent Hill Revelation never quite scales the heights reached by the original film, it's an enjoyable tale with some very impressive and spooky moments sprinkled throughout.
First thing I have to commend are some of the casting choices. The gorgeous Adelaide Clemens is perfectly cast as Heather and I can't think of anyone more fitting to play the silent hill 3 heroine. Sean Bean was criticised in the original movie for his poor american accent. However he performs much more admirably in Revelation and his British accent is almost impossible to detect. One cast member who didn't impress me however, was Kit Harington, better known as Jon Snow in HBO's stunning drama series, Game Of Thrones. While Kit is excellent in GOT, he basically sleepwalks through this movie, with poor line delivery and some scenes where he just seems to not be putting any effort into his role. But overall, I was pleasantly surprised by the acting quality in the film.
A lot of the plot will be familiar to anyone who has played silent hill 3 but there are enough differences to keep the story interesting to even those who have completed the game multiple times. Without spoiling anything, Heather Mason and her father Harry(not their real names.Read more ›
I gave this film four stars overall because it did not give the level of intensity I was hoping for. I understand the difficulty of putting a multi hour game into a movie, but I was hoping for something a little more creepy, intense, and more closely following the game plot-line.
If you are looking for a scary movie, definitely watch this. It is well directed and the actors were interesting. If you are a Silent Hill fanatic, it's always good to check it out.
Firstly: I LOVED this movie. I didn't realize how much I did until I recently did my annual "Team Silent" game play (as I personally find anything after 4 just...coattail riding cringe... sorry!). After playing SH3 I decided to watch Revelation as I only did once when it first came out and honestly didn't give it much thought. But after playing and watching I was just amazed at how great this movie was!
The first movie wasn't ...too bad. To be honest, I only watched for Pyramid Head. It's acting matched the graphics and story of the first game quite well in cringe factor and I felt the writer/director/whoever just kind of skimmed what the series was about and didn't really care for sticking to much else.
SH:Revelation was done in a "this is for the fans!...more so than the other movie anyway!" way that I adored them for it! The little things: hotel #106 and the red shoe in the room just had me smiling like the SH dork I am. I even waited for that jump scare in the mannequin factory of pure nightmares. (That whole scene was incredibly terrifying!)
Of course I had a few problems: while I love Jon Kit Snow Harington, I'm far too fond of game-Vincent. While I had read Kit was told not to watch anything about his game counterpart, he really did have some mannerisms and personality that could have passed for a younger Vincent. Very impressive, Kit!
Ugh and Travis?! Was that really necessary? All this happy build up went to "uuughhhhhh but why?" But it was only a second so I won't hold them to it.Read more ›
Heather even admits to her classmate that it's a good idea not to bother getting to know her, because she'll be moving on shortly anyway. This scene was sort of unintentionally funny because she just stood up and criticized the entire class and yet the teacher says she did a good job of introducing herself, lol. Her classmates should have been super angry. I also feel there's a low budget sense while watching some of the acting take place which should've been improved. Some of the lines weren't delivered in a high quality way.
I have to mention some spoilers, so don't read the rest of my review if you haven't watched this movie yet.
I thought Harry was supposed to die. It surprises me it doesn't happen that way since he reappears at the end. Also while I'd have to brush up on my Silent Hill 3 knowledge to remember which events in Revelations are based on the video game and which stuff is exaggerated or fabricated for the sake of a movie, I'd have to say either way the movie does a tremendous job telling a *really* sophisticated story especially when compared to most horror films these days. While that comes as no surprise since the SH series has been known for its remarkably detailed story, what's most surprising is that the movie tells it so well.Read more ›

I am such a fan of the first Silent Hill film. This movie was just lacking in so many areas. I felt the acting was poor and the story line made no sense.Published 1 month ago by Anna Laura Craft
This movie spits in the face of every Silent Hill fan.
Avoid it like the plague, it sucks.
