Heather/Sharon (Adelaide Clemens) finds herself starting her first day at a new school in a new town. All her life she has been running, new names, new towns, new schools. She and her Dad are running from something she doesn’t understand, but it’s in her nightmares. It’s Silent Hill. When her Dad disappears and she finds a cryptic message telling her to “Come to Silent Hill” she knows she must. There are chilling secrets from her real past that she has to work out before it’s too late for everybody. This is a truly frightening sequel to the original 2009 Silent Hill film both based on the video game by Konami.
The original Silent Hill was one horrific movie. It really scared the crap out of me, more than any film I had ever seen. I was not aware of the video game, nor the plot of the game, so I had no idea what was going on. But I was looking forward to this sequel, and I was not disappointed. It did not have the confusion for me that the first one did, as I know who Rose and Sharon are from the first movie, but it still has a lot going for it in the horror and terror department. I saw this in the ETX theater with fabulous sound, big clear digital picture, and in 3D which was awesome, and all that technology really helped me enjoy the film. The sound is really crisp and LOUD and is enough to make you jump out of your seat time after time. But the true suspense of this strange and evil town, especially the carnival, are enough to give you nightmares for weeks. The actors were good, and the special effects and monsters are awesome. There are some scenes that will make you marvel at how technology has grown in these times. All in all Silent Hill: Revelation is true to the original, very creepy and downright terrifying sometimes, and it has a well wrapped up ending with a chance to do another sequel should it need to be made, but complete enough in itself that it’s not mandatory to end the story. All in all, it was an enjoyable night out at the cinema, just before Halloween, and a good film I won’t forget right away. I had a blast with this.
