As a fan of the game I really appreciated the way they kept that true spirit to the game, which is creepy to say the least. the music was strongly linked too, which was a character in itself. It is not as scary as the games (scary as hell) but I really enjoyed the visuals and the soundtrack is superb. The gender change was clever I thought. Its not the dad running around looking for his daughter, they switched parents, so the mother is on her own trying to figure out everything while trying to avoid being taken out by nasty twisted creatures. Radha is just so bad ass in this. I have always loved her but she really works it in this.

What I am most happy with is that they put in the alley way scene at the start of the movie and actually did an ok job of it. In the game it is a gazillion times scarier but it brought back some good memories. Anyone who has played the first game will always mention that fist part when you hear the sirens go off. every hair stands up and then they just slam you will the worlds scariest soundtrack. Pure genius. Even the camera angles and directions are the same, it actually lifts up over her as she runs past and goes back down from behind her. I loved that.

Speaking of the soundtrack, the tracks include songs from games 1-3 and they are all amazing. you can buy them for all games and bring you deeper into the world. the one thing about the games is the amount of emotion involved. All three games (in particular the 2nd one)has very sad and tragic stories. I am very happy they gave Lisa some screen time because her case actually made me very sad along with many gamers out there. That's how much you care about the characters.

This movie is a fun ride, depending on what you call entertainment. It is a bit twisted and some parts are quite extreme but so is the game so if you don't mind images like nurses with no faces, children with twisted heads and screaming.....you know things like that, then there shouldn't be a problem. Ooh and the barbed wire part...holy moly that had me crossing my legs.

This is still one of my favourite movies.....just for that one quotes...

"To rid the world of this demon - WE MUST BURN THIS CHILD!" - "look at me....im burning"

The extras are quite good, there is a long "making of" feature that shows you all the people that are in the costumes YES THEY ARE ALL ACTED OUT. It is amazing to think that each creature had its own "driver" and actor. I would absolutely recommend buying the dvd to see how this movie was made, especially the part with the nurses. Omg wow so cool. Pyramid head is in here and the "lying creatures" or armless man. SO SO CREEPY!

The entire cast is amazing in this, every single one whether good or bad, they all just added to the whole movie. This movie has a very strong female leading cast. they are a bunch of power houses, every single one. Poor Chris did what he could haha.
Absolutely fantastic movie.

For this adoption of a computer game made into a film by the director Christopher Gans who again turned to the writer Rodger Avery who he previously worked with him on his 1995 "Crying Freeman" film, that film was from a manga magazine but this time instead of being a unaccredited writer for that film he wrote the screenplay for Silent Hill.

Instead of changing the story from the game the action and gory scenes are played almost exactly as it does in the video game making the whole movie experience quite strange and surreal for anyone who hadn't played the game and scary for a whole load of other reasons, I found the film a little slow at the beginning but once the town of Silent Hill is found the pace picks up.

The story is where a Mother searches for her lost child in the town of Silent Hill, this role is played by Radha Mitchell the town appears to be built on a permanently smouldering coal seam.

The monsters that feature have been directly lifted from the game along with the backgrounds which gives the film another world atmosphere that is both dark and disturbing in equal measure, this is better than your average game to film adoption and has some genuine moments that make the viewer jump.

This DVD is presented in 2:35.1 aspect and has a really well mixed 5.1 surround sound track, and has some interesting special features including a Making of documentary, the original trailer, photo gallery and U.K. T.V. spots.

Not as scary as you'd imagine. The moments of tension are ruined by their outcomes. It is still a good movie as the plot line goes but a lot of the time the scares don't deliver.

for those of you who have played the Silent Hill games (especially the original and best on PS1) will not be disappointed by this film, the director has stayed true to the essence and feel of the games without being tacky!

Those who are not aware of the Silent Hill games will also enjoy this film just for what it is, it's a suspenseful and thrilling film to watch and should not disappoint.

my only criticism is Sean Bean with his terrible american accent along with his poorly wrote character, however this fortunately doesn't subtract from the enjoyment of the film (maybe personal taste)

Overall a worthy buy!
