Silent Hill

In Theatre : April 21, 2006
Director(s): Christophe Gans

The movie is based on Konami's popular Horror Survival game "Silent Hill". The story was written by Roger Avary ("Killing Zoe"), and the film was directed by Christophe Gans ("Brotherhood of the Wolf").

Sharon (Jodelle Ferland) disappears in Silent Hill, and Rose (Radha Mitchell) follows what she thinks is her daughter's silhouette all over town. It's soon clear the town is not like any place she's ever been. Is's inhabited by a variety of creatures and a living darkness that descends and literally transforms everything it touches. The human inhabitants (the ones who are left) are trapped and fighting a losing battle against the Darkness.

Joined by a cop named Cybil (Laurie Holden), who has been sent to bring her and Sharon back, Rose searches for her little girl while learning the history of Silent Hill and that Sharon is just a pawn in a larger game. To save her daughter, Sharon makes a deal with a demon in the form of a little girl.....

Silent Hill Review by DerbyDemon
