the good guy?
Happy Tuesday everyone! For those of you in the path of the hurricane, I hope you're not dead! I'm setting this to autopost in case my power's out, so who knows, maybe I'm sitting in the dark, and the situation has devolved into cannibalism! If so, then what more fitting movie to talk about than a Silent Hill film in THREE DEESSSSS. For the record I did not see this movie in 3D, because I hate 3D movies and really REALLY don't want to pay 13+ dollars for a movie ticket. That sucks. Silent Hill: Revelation is a direct sequel to the original Silent Hill movie (if you missed it I reviewed the original on Thursday) following Chris, now Harry (Sean Bean) and Sharon now Heather (Adelaide Clemens), who are on the run from a mysterious group, who want Heather for some sinister purpose. This movie is clearly intent on hedging very closely to the plot of Silent Hill 3, and that is to its credit. Like I said on Thursday, in my opinion Silent Hill 3 was the best one. So how did this movie stack up to the original?

I went in to this movie with pretty low expectations. I'd seen the trailers, and noted that 3D was actually included IN THE TITLE, and that is never a good sign. You know what else had the 3D in the title? Piranha 3D is the answer. That is just not the company you want to be in. Anyway, back to Silent Hill 2. The movie starts the same way as Silent Hill 3, which I thought was a nice touch. There are a lot of moments in this movie that evoke moments from the game, but I felt like there was at least some genuine attempt for them to fit into the movie, as opposed to say the cheap attempts to evoke nostalgia that the resident evil movies so often attempt. Heather awakens from a terrifying hell amusement park nightmare, and then heads off for her first day at a new school, where she meets Vincent (played by Kit Harrington, who you might know as Jon Snow in the Game of Thrones TV series). Now I knew from the game that going by his name, he was probably there to follow Heather, but if I hadn't his more or less immediate fixation on her would have seemed really strange (and his willingness to put himself in danger for her). Heather suffers from almost constant hallucinations of some nightmare place (Silent Hill naturally) and that made for a pretty cool effect. Eventually her father is kidnapped, forcing her to return to Silent Hill to try and save him.
|Heather is at least smart enough not to go without a gun.|
|Claudia doesn't seem like a very nice lady. Also is she related|
to the guy from the second Hellboy movie?
That's all for now! Assuming I have power again by Thursday, I will give it a rest with the horror for now, and review a movie not about dismembered bodies!
