Silent Hill: Revelation 3D Travels to Alternate Realities This Haloween

Although I’m an avid fan of horror films, I find interesting that I still haven’t played that many horror games. Parasite Eve, Resident Evil, Alone in the Dark and Silent Hill, are all franchises that I need to catch up with, but while I do that, I can get the best of both worlds and watch a horror movie based on a horror game. Silent Hill: Revelation 3D is an upcoming horror film based on Silent Hill 3 that follows Heather Mason as she travels between the real world and a parallel dimension.

Silent Hill 3 was really well received back in the day for its truly terrifying atmosphere, transmitting a genuine feeling of uneasiness and for being a strong sequel to the lauded Silent Hill 2. Will Silent Hill: Revelation 3D maintain some of these qualities? While most film adaptations of video games are absolutely despicable (believe me, I know!) I’m still waiting for a movie to prove me wrong. Now that I think about it, maybe I shouldn’t have so much confidence on a film that has “3D” right in its title…

Silent Hill: Revelations 3D comes to theaters on October 26.

    UGH i dont know. Looks so ” hollywood/mainstream “. I’m pretty sure the entire focus (and their budget for that matter) is solely going to showing off 3D gimmicks such as in resident evil – Afterlife. Giving it a poor result overall. Not to mention , i’m not even going to bother unless the film or someone can explain the inconsistencies that were left after the first film and are not adding up with this sequel. The daughter is all grown up, great. However last time i checked, her and her mother were still stuck in the alternate world without being able to have any contact with their father. What gives? Suddenly it’s the mom that’s missing and the daughter and father have been travelling the country.
    Unfortunately, i’m expecting a ” you can’t polish a turd but you can roll it in glitter ” approach for this film.

      Yes, I absolutely agree with you Forforic. This trailer does give that impression of one of those generic films based on a video game. In addition, I also think that 3D has been a useless gimmick for a while and Resident Evil: Afterlife is probably the best example of that. In fact, that is something I mentioned in the review of the film because at one point, it becomes unbearably distracting.

      I have yet to watch the first Silent Hill film for review purposes (I watched it when it came out and haven’t seen it since,) so expect a review of that film soon. Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment and I’m glad you liked this article!
