Silent Hill 3D sequel gets some humans to scare

03.07.2011

Grab your flashlight, because the misty creeping dread and the terror of Pyramid Head are returning to screens with a new SILENT HILL movie.

The 3D sequel SILENT HILL: REVELATIONS is another adaptation of Konami's popular and unnerving video game series, following the events of the 2006 horror movie from director Christophe Gans.

While Radha Mitchell apparently won't be returning, the movie will star Aussie actress Adelaide Clemens (above), perhaps best known to American audiences from her brief appearance as the cute girl who checks out Dominic Monaghan's incredibly lame light-bulb trick in X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE. She'll also be seen (eventually) in George Miller's constantly delayed pseudo-sequel MAD MAX: FURY ROAD.

The movie also stars Kit Harington (HBO’s upcoming series "Game of Thrones") and is currently in production in Toronto with Michael J. Bassett (SOLOMON KANE) directing. Bloody-Disgusting claims that Sean Bean may also return in some capacity (and if he's up for a DVD sequel to DEATH RACE, why not?).

The synopsis: "For years, Heather Mason (Clemens) and her father have been on the run, always one step ahead of dangerous forces that she doesn’t fully understand. Now on the eve of her 18th birthday, plagued by terrifying nightmares and the disappearance of her father, Heather discovers she's not who she thinks she is. The revelation leads her deeper into a demonic world that threatens to trap her in Silent Hill forever."

Dead Space 2 is a good game.


But Silent Hill 2 is one of the scariest games ever made. Dead Space has nothing on it.

Bassett did a great job with Solomon Kane so there's definitely hope for this one. And regardless of whatever flaws the first Silent Hill film had, they certainly got the tone right.

I'm looking forward to this, but am very skeptical. I'm a Silent Hill die hard, and while I am a fan of the first film (if anything, for the atmosphere and look of the film), I am not holding my breath for a decent follow up. I don't want to get my hopes up that this film corrects the first films mistakes. I guess I will just be happy if the film is enjoyable.

Dave, you really should play Silent Hill 2. It's one of the better story experiences in video games. (which is why i am glad that this film seems to be emulating Silent Hill 3)

Unfortunately the cg was so bad and the acting and design so cartoonish that it was just laughable.

Slight correction, Pyramid Head rips a NAKED woman's skin off and throws it at a CHURCH door. Not the mention the crazy cult lady getting barbed wire up her yoohoo before being torn in half. I would say the first one was one of darkest horror films i've seen recently.

The first movie tried far too hard to be just like the first game, so much so that it was just laugh out loud silly. The first Silent Hill movie could be an Ed Wood or Uwe Boll movie except for Gans having a bit of credit to his name.

Those games are so much more cinematic than movies are anymore. People should just play the games and leave the movies alone.

Im up for this

Really loved the style of the games, and the first movie replicated it quite well I thought (although the end result was a bit of a miss).

Would like to see what a new director can do with it. I wish they had got Lynch to direct! It would be fcked up, but would suit the material really well I reckon...

Seriously???

They change so much in the first film that it's a loose adaption of the first game then for the sequel they want to pretty much adapt the 3rd game? Adapting the 3rd game would make sense if they had actually stayed true to the first game but they didn't.

This is starting to smell like Resident Evil: Apocalypse and the horrible mess that movie ended up being.

Just adapt Silent Hill 2 already!

About time.

I'm one of the few fans of the original movie (as well as the games). But I'm hoping this will be more "atmospheric" and suspenseful.

I liked the first one, it's probably my favorite video game movie (not saying a lot, I know). I'm pretty bummed that Radha won't be back, though. She's one of my favorite actresses, and her list of upcoming movies on IMDb is staying depressingly empty.

As a fan of the 3rd Silent Hill game, this is awesome...! (I like that pic!)

I just hope that they flesh out the story more, and focus more on the psychological than the gore.

If Pyramid Head makes an appearance, I hope they give a reason. In the first film, it was just fan-service.

Also, I too liked Rahda Mitchell's character (as well as Laurie Holden's). Both women were dressed, and looked sexy.

I'm hoping for a mention of what happened to both characters in this second film.
