My wife and I went to see this movie (being huge fans of the original Silent Hill). My wife and I own and play every Silent Hill game and own the first movie based on the first Silent Hill game. Anyway, we were very excited to see this movie and once we bought tickets we decided to see the 3D version. The 3D was awesome. What we didn't like was that we didn't think the movie was scary at all, the story dragged on, and we just overall thought it was dissapointing based on the original movie and the video games, which are all 10-times scarier than this new Silent Hill: Revelations.
Maybe it was just us but from what we are used to the scary and original Silent Hill games. Also, at the end of Silent Hill: Revelations, it looked as iff they set up for another sequel which appears it might be based off the newest game, Silent Hill Downpour.
Overall we thought the movie was kind of boring and deffinitely disappointing.

A few story elements felt rushed and the male character named Vincent feeling remotely anything for Heather was unrealistic since they'd known each other for less than a day.
Also Heather never pukes up a fetus like in the game. Blah.
On the plus side, you get to see Pyramid Head kick some butt in 3D.

Silent Hill: Revelation was a good creepy movie but at times I got lost with its plot that for non players of the game franchise may get totally lost with whats happening. Visually the movie is wonderful, felt very much like the games look and feel. There was also a constant creepiness to the film with its grungy look and eerie creatures. I still prefer the original one better, I think many of the aspects that made the first one good got buried beneath the dense story line presented in Revelation. Definitely a must see for fans of the games or the original movie, though it is definitely not for children.

I would rather play the games than watch this movie. At least I am involved and have fun playing the games. I have 5 games of Silent Hill but I fell asleep watching this movie half way through.

The first "Silent Hill" is related to this one in title only. I always try to find something nice to say about a movie because I know it took bunches of people and gazillions of dollars and months to even years to bring it to the screen. In this case, I kind of wish they'd opted to let the first one stand as a monolith of horror. Sadly, it's all about the money, especially in movies. And it shows here. For all the genuinely artful special effects and camera work, the elaborate make up and set designs, you'd think they'd have spent at least some of that budget on a decent screenplay. Not a chance, and that's what makes this among the most comically awful horror movies, or perhaps movies in general, that this viewer has ever seen. For perspective on that last comment, I see hundreds of films on screen in theaters each year. It's what I do for fun and what I've been doing for fun for more than a decade now. Skip this one. You'll be glad you did. Insist on more for your money.
