Silent Hill

17 April 2009

This was one of the movies that kept us busy over the Holy Week. No cable T.V, we thought at least a good movie would keep us company.
I got familiar with Silent Hill as a game on Playstation 2. I watch my husband play it. With all the interest rising, we got a DVD copy.

The eerie and deserted town of Silen Hill draws a young mother desperate to find a cure for her only child's illness. Unable to accept the doctor's diagnosis that her daughter should be permanently institutionalized for psychiatric care. Rose (Radha Mitchell) flees with her child, heading for the abandoned town in search for answers, ignoring the protest of her husband (Sean Bean).
It's soon clear that this place was unlike anywhere she's ever been. It's smothered by fog, inhabited by a variety of strange beings, and periodically overcome by a living darkness that literally transforms everything it touches. As Rose searches for her little girl, she begins to learn the story of the strange town and realizes that her daughter is just a pawn of a larger game.-source-

This was the movie adaptation released in 2006, from the first game Silent Hill: Origins 1999.
It was a very interesting flick. Not scary at all, but very disturbing. I got confused right in the middle of the story. It will take a lot of thinking, but it was all worth it in the end. It was made for you to internalize in order to get the answers to your questions. It's one of the things I love when watching a movie---when I get to think and study. Then later, get the message I'm looking for.

No wonder it was a huge success to the general public. The characters were based from the first four games.

It's one of the movies that had an evil face-off. Watch it!
