Silent Hill DVD Review

Scoring a frightening 30% from 20 reviews on Metacritic.com, the eerie and deserted town of Silent Hill just got a whole lot scarier. How could it possibly be that bad.... well see for yourself

Reviews Summary
  • In Silent Hill athmosphere trumps storyline (duhhhh!)
  • Bad acting, bad dialog, and a confusing plot (SF chronicles awarded it a 0 yes Zero)
  • A step in the right direction for console to screen transitions (what backwards?)
  • Silent hills attraction lies in it's relentlessly nightmare imagery (finally a critic)
  • Stuffed with cheap effects and devoid of tension
  • A two hour stumble through what looked like fog

Silent Hill Offical Website
featuring such innovative marketing techniques as Ipod skins , mobile phone wallpaper, bid on the original costumes and props, character downloads, and an even scarier prospect that the town of Centralia, Pennsylvania is the real life counterpart of Silent hill.

And the lead is no more a father... He is a she and a mother... Disgusting...

The Elderly said...

tsk! mothers, not likely to go ballistic or anything, can't see a mother taking on pyramid head, pffhh it was doomed from the start

gnome said...

Quite so... I didn't even bother... The trailer was wise in warning people to avoid said film...

The Elderly said...

lol

quite observant and it's probably why we should pay more attention to trailers...

The Elderly said...

It's been a pastime of mine for some years now, but a certain gnomette might rip your entrails out and feed them to the dogs...... or worse

gnome said...

Why? I didn't do anything... I simply thought aloud... Oh, dear...

The Elderly said...

I've taken the liberty of removing your comment in light of the fact you might have been followed here.....

better safe than disemboweled my dad used to say....

The movie sure did remind me of playing the game... I was shocked that Pyramid Head just disapeared out of the movie after they ran into the church..? I was hoping to see more of him and even tho' it wasnt that good, It was still better than other game movies Ive seen!!

The Elderly said...

and on that recommendation i'm buying, im a sucker for a movie based on a game i've played

TheTimeRunner said...

Why do people trash this movie. Compared to the Doom movie release it wasn't half bad. If one can see the logic why the man was changed to a woman one could understand why such was the case.

It wasn't perfect and if one was to make such, it wouldn't have been released as an R rated movie. Just be glad it wasn't like *shudders* Bloodrayne.

The Elderly said...

eeeehhhhhhh bloodrayne..... i'm off for a shower...... eeek

well thats two reccomendations, so its moved up on my wishlist
