When she wakes up, Sharon has disappeared and Rose is at the entrance to the deserted, dream-like town of Silent Hill.

Technical Specs


Did You Know?

In the film, Silent Hill is a desolate ghost town that had been abandoned because of a dangerous 30-year-old coal fire burning in the mines under the town. Screenwriter Roger Avary used a real-life town as the inspiration for Silent Hill: Centralia, Pennsylvania. Centralia is almost completely deserted due to a mine fire burning right under the community for 40 years. Avary saw what Centralia had become, as well as its history, and decided to use its past as the basis for Silent Hill.

Revealing mistakes: When Rose first enters Silent Hill, right before the camera starts circling around her, you can see that her locket isn't a locket at all but an oval key chain.

Rose: Sharon! She's not here! Oh, god. Christopher, can you see anything? Sharon! Sharon!

User Review

Best Game Movie Adaptation Yet!

Rating: 10/10

I'm not sure what the original comment leaver saw last night, but it certainly wasn't Silent Hill.

I saw a critic screening last night, and must say I was highly impressed. As a fan of the games, and anything related to them, my faith has been firmly established in Gans and Avery, and I can only wish for sequels.

The atmosphere was perfect, the acting was on point, the creatures were amazing, well, everything was amazing.

The town itself looks just like the town we love, and it's almost like coming home again. You'll see what I mean when you finally get to see the film.

Just be prepared for a disturbing, bloody (oh man, the blood), and genuinely creepy ride.

I'd say more, but giving spoilers would be like slapping you in the face.

Go see it!
