Fans of the first film will love the return to Silent Hill. We get to see the continuation of the story in full 3D - and it's actually not as cheesy as you might expect. Here we find a tale about underground cults, alternate dimensions, and the splitting of souls. Fascinating stuff. The movie is not truly scary - but - the scenes when "the darkness comes" are genuinely unsettling. There are also some moments of very thick tension. There is enough reality injected to make the craziness seem almost plausible, The protagonist is lovable, yet very snarky and biting - as one would expect of someone raised by a single father and who has been on the run after the death of her mother. The ending is believable enough, and I appreciate the lack of a "last scare" scam. Nevertheless, I smell a sequel - after all there were several video games in this franchise.

Other than the odd sisterly method used to destroy Alessa, I thought the overall story was decent. The CG ash, fog and shadows were the best of the 3D factor. It's kind of a turn off when a movie adds gimmicky jutting weaponry purely for the sake of 3D.

Scary, nightmare inducing creatures drive this well but slightly altered story from the books and games that keep us coming back for more.Will the cameos of players in number 2 be just the slight bit of info. needed to keep the hunger alive for the release of number 3? I say yes!
Awesome, headscratching, great entrtainment.

If you want to see SH3 morphed into a movie, sorry this aint it, but it does create a bit of a new and interesting story that follows the first movie, I am a big SH fan and I did enjoy this movie quiet a bit, i'm actually thinking of going again

If you liked the first one you will like this one I think. Of course the wild and off the wall crazy is still with this one just like the first one. My wife and I enjoyed it and felt it was worth the money to see. I really feel that this one looks so much more like the silent hill we all know and love so I will say its a go!
