Can a videogame actually be turned into a movie that is actually good? It’s a question that often plagues a process of such an endeavor. A discouraging thought to many who attempt this daunting task. However, those involved in the Silent Hill sequel, Silent Hill: Revelation don’t seem to be burdened at all with that fear. And it’s a good thing these people don’t scare easily because they’re covering some seriously creepy content!
It was announced that,
Radha Mitchell (The Crazies, Surrogates), Sean Bean (HBO’s upcoming series “Game of Thrones,” Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, “The Lord of the RIngs”), and Deborah Kara Unger (Shake Hands with the Devil, 88 Minutes) will return to join Adelaide Clemens (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Mad Max: Fury Road) and Kit Harington (“Game of Thrones”) on Silent Hill: Revelation 3D.
In addition to an eager cast waiting to return to the project, both new director, Michael Basset and Cinematographer, Maxime Alexandre expressed their excitement about the project as well. Basset commented,
“It wouldn’t be the same without some of the original ‘Silent Hill’ cast. Sean, Radha and Deborah’s return will certainly thrill fans of the franchise and compliment Revelations stars Adelaide and Kit.”
And Alexadre painted a haunting picture of the direction of the sequel saying,
“With the most advanced technology available, in particular the lighter, smaller and more flexible 3D Red Epic, we are able to take audiences deeper in the world of ‘Silent Hill’ than they ever dreamed possible. Devotees will finally be able to enter this realm along side of Heather, Vincent, Harry and Rose and experience the psychological horror and the fear of the unknown with them.”
Now, I usually despise video game adaptions. Silent Hill was a step in the right direction. It had a few missteps but nothing that really made me despise it. If this one holds together I’ll have a watch
The plot of Silent Hill: Revelation follows the character of Clemens and her father. Her father ends up disappearing and Clemens begins to come to the realization that she may be trapped in Silent Hill FOREVER.
Are there any Silent Hill fans out there, if so, are you pumped for a sequel??

Silent Hill: Revelation 3D is based on the acclaimed survival horror videogame franchise by KONAMI and is the sequel to Hadida and Carmody’s earlier Silent Hill directed by Christophe Gans. For years, Heather Mason (Clemens) and her father have been on the run, always one step ahead of dangerous forces that she doesn’t fully understand. Now on the eve of her 18th birthday, plagued by terrifying nightmares and the disappearance of her father, Heather discovers she’s not who she thinks she is. The revelation leads her deeper into a demonic world that threatens to trap her in Silent Hill forever.
