I've never heard of the game this is based on - not as creepy as stated by other reviewers but it's not the worst horror movie I've ever seen either.
What was this movie about?
ok I THINK THIS MOVIE WAS OK have seen worse have seen better I can follow this one not like have no story line and make no sence.
This has to be one of the worst horror movies I have seen in a long time. Would give it negative star ratings were that possible. This film is overly fixated on creating computer generated special effects at the expense of good script writing. The story is lame, implausible and characters spend most of the movie running around dark corridors calling out each others name. I can't believe that Sean Bean agreed to actually be in this movie.
Have no clue about the game but thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Didn't like the ending, There was no need for them to die as Rose did what was asked of her, they so could have lived happily ever after. This movie is more of a thriller/supernatural not really a horror. My 13yr son wanted to see zombies, no zombies here really. There was a group of "zombie" things ( looked more like mummies) in a scene with Rose & it looked like they were going to do the Michael Jackson Thriller dance. No blood, guts and gore for horror fans. Good suspense for thriller/supernatural fans.
expected better,not enough story to it,i have played the games and they freaked me out more than this pic.special effects were pretty good but like i said not enough story to it,jumped to next part too quick i thought.
Exellent movie, very creepy y atmosphere with quite a twist, end not finishing as we thought it would, though the story compelled us to stick to our seats and watch it through
one of the worst horror/suspense films i have ever seen.
Silent Hill is up there as one of the stupidest plots I've seen - from start to finnish the characters made little sense. Visuals were good, but nothing great.
Excellent. Actually had a plot that made you care (and which made sense), which is unusual in this genre.
Gore and horror factor a step up from something like House on Haunted Hill or Ghost Ship , so not recommended for 15 or under.
Silent Hill twisted minds and sent shivers down gamers' spines for most of the late ' 90's and early '00's.
Rose's doomed search is a tale of suspense that keeps you guessing then wondering what the living daylights was that.
Scariest character for me was played by Alice Krige. She best known for playing "The Borg Queen" in the Star Trek franchise: paricualrly "First Contact" and the two-part finale of "Star Trek: Voyager." Fundamentalism never was so evil. Want to know more? Queue this one anad find out.
Great visuals, but the story is confusing and the characters uninteresting.
Worth watching, very good.
one of the best horror movie
I loved this movie. It was creepy and really delivered. I dont understand why it keeps getting underated. You do need to understand the story line though. If you dont, then it wont make much sense to you. Either way, a good, scarey horror flick..
Bizarre but very watchable. A good storyline once I fugyred what was going on. May have helped if I knew the computer game. Still not sure what happened at the end but didn't stop me from enjoying this classy horror. Worth a look.
a shocker, wouldn't recommend
Never played or even seen the game but the movie starts off brilliantly somewhere in the thriller/mystery genre then succumbs to the usual horror formula with weird, kooky religious fanatics thrown in for good measure and that's about the time I tuned out.
One of the best Horror out the there. Big giant bad guy,the Young lady who plays 3 different characts is excellent acting.
I enjoyed this movie. Great effects throughout. It was a movie that you had to sit through it and watch it all to be able to understand what was going on. The ending was a bit weird, but in a good way.
Great movie. Very different script than anything I've ever seen. The twist at the end is excellent & doesn't leave you feeling like the writers took the easy way out.! Go watch it - for sure!!!
I liked the movie but had to watch it a second time to understand the plot. I found it hard to follow the first time but the second time around I realised they were dead.
It's got the "What's going on?" feel to the horror, making it better than many others of this type.
not to bad if your into horror has it's moments but not as good as the game
Scary in parts but strange ending. Some very good special effects.
My daughter watched this movie and liked what she saw, although there was a section in the middle which she could not watch due to bad scratching.
Too long and story line disjointed.
Don't waste your time
First scary movie I've seen in ages that is actually scary.
Very well done, cool special effects
I haven't seen the game and the movie therefore was not so clear to me. Frankly they should just leave these game derivatoves in the game box.
scary movie worth watching
If you liked the game I am sure you will love the movie... Has a great eerie element to it that scares..
