I probably wouldn't go as far as to call it one of my favorite horror movies, but I thought the first Silent Hill was fantastic. I mean, the movie gets a little too over the top during the climax, but the first two thirds of the movie are wonderfully, eerily atmospheric with a really great, eerie score. A score that belongs on the list of all time top horror movie scores like Halloween and A Nightmare on Elm Street.
There are two great movies based on a video game, this one obviously. And the other one is Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within.
