Horseshit. Complete horseshit. I’m not spending much time on this.
The good: great special effects, evil characters, and atmosphere. You constantly feel on edge while watching or playing Silent Hill.
The bad: the acting, the constant attempt to make too much of a good thing, the overuse of over-the-top “scares”, and pretty much everything else. I cared nothing for the characters, the story, or the climax of this letdown in grainy motion. This was like having a scoop of vanilla ice cream that Satan made from hand. Sure, it’s evil as hell, but it’s still a mediocre flavor. (sorry Satan)
They managed to get two actors from Game of Thrones and make me hate them in their horror life. Skip it. Don’t go see it because you’re bored – that’s what got me in trouble. Fuck off, Silent Hill.
