Wow, what a fun and entertaining Halloween film to visit!
My wife and I caught the early Thursday release prior to the main Friday. We were surprised at how many people filled the theater and responded to the special screening. We were pleasantly pleased when the lights dimmed and the eeriness began. A simple recap and off we were going, back to Silent Hill. The typical cast of creatures are back with the blind nurses offering up a very terrifying scene.
3D technology was up to speed and not overused as we have seen lately in some recent offerings. When the 3D kicked in, we were leaning left and right trying to avoid the onslaught. The most pleasant use of course really played out in the daylight. Walking through the town as ashes fell constantly, surrounding us and really creating and unusual bleak world.
Overall, this is a fun, late night film to take your date to in celebration of the October things that go bump in the night......

I liked the first one so i decided to give the second a try. I went by myself and saw it in 3d. I think the back story should have been explained a little sooner that it was. Left a big hole in the story for about thirty minutes. It was ok.

Story 7/10 the head of the order resisting Alessa doesn't make sense if shes a demon herself and Alessa was defeated by her daughter way too easily
Visuals 8/10 gotta admit the red pyramid vs the Lady of the order was cool and the nurses are hot as hell
Horror factor 6/10 nothing jumped at me as scary but the manaquine spider was creepy
Overall 7/10 I rate this as a strong B+ or A- a must go and may see again,

I'll have to be honest I didnt play much of the games as a kid but that does not stop me from enjoying and adaptation of a movie from a game franchise even though usualy it ends up as a train wreck. This is the movie all other game movie adaptations should be compared against. The story was pretty spot on to the game I beleive the third game and leaves it open to start into the fourth game! Perfect blend of suspense and action opens up this to only want you to go to halloween horror nights to see what they have done to match up to the movie! A must see for the season and one to see twice! I know I will!
