I watched this movie at the cinemas with somewhat of a reservation. Being a
fan of the games, I was curious to see if the environments, characters and
stories of the game, could be brought to life in a movie. As you know, SH is
known for its great stories which pull you into the game as well as the creepy
environments and enemies.
I am happy to note though, that this movie brought so many elements of the
game into the movie. In fact, if you watch the “Making of” featurette, you
will get a better understanding of this. The movie itself was a bit slow moving
but it was getting you ready for the adventure ahead.. I also MUST let you know
that if you watch this movie on a budget tv with crap sound, you will not be
getting the same experience nor will you be doing it justice. The sound effects
are one of the most important attributes of this movie and you cannot
sufficiently enjoy it without good sound.
I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys Silent Hill or
even anyone who enjoys a good horror/thriller with a twist. So start popping
that corn, turn off all the lights and enjoy!!!
