For anyone considering buying the Silent Hill movie:
I did a little bit of reading and for some reason they didn't put any of the making of featurette on the blu-ray, so I decided to buy the DVD version instead, and well, the making of featurette is actually quite good. It's about an hour long, and I really enjoyed it. Shows the creatures, sets, actors, director, choreographer, etc. Great making of documentary.
What they mean by that is "when is it not going to go up against one of the box office juggernauts of the year...aka...Avengers, Dark Knight Rises, Prometheus, The Hobbit...And to a lesser extent... Skyfall, Breaking Dawn 2, MIBIII, Spiderman, Dredd, Total Recall, Bourne Legacy...and a whole load of other movies that will no doubt be totally shit but still be the type of thing that idiots go to in their droves.
Hmm.. looks like it might be fun. Who is the girl? Was she in the first film? (Sorry, I'm clueless when it comes to the characters / games)
IMDB says Radha Mitchell is in it, but I didn't see her. She's mainly what I liked so much about the first one. And IMDB also says Carrie Anne Moss is in it?? huh.. I guess she has tons of prosthetic makeup on or something, cuz I didn't recognize her at all.
(This Link says it's based on Silent Hill 3 videogame.)
But neat. I'm actually kind of looking forward to this. I just like all the creepy effects and characters.
Didnt like pyramidHead being the 'hero' at the end. I understand he was the 'protector' but I honestly wanted to see her overcome all that crazy on her own. The nurse scene was fun but I wanted more creepy moments, I felt cheated when that guy put the pieces of whatever inside him and transformed into that twisted skin monster only to be killed five seconds later simply by reaching in and removing what he stuck inside himself. Fun watch but not what I thought it would be. Reminded me a little of nightmare on elm street with the waking nightmare type slips into silent hill.
