Horror set in the eerie and deserted town of Silent Hill where a young mother is desperate to find a cure for her only child's illness. Unable to accept the doctor's diagnosis that her daughter should be permanently institutionalised for psychiatric care, Rose (Radha Mitchell) flees with her child, heading for the abandoned town in search of answers and ignoring the protests of her husband (Sean Bean). It's soon clear this place is 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 history of the strange town and realises that her daughter is just a pawn in a larger game.

The above review is incredibly harsh on the film and I would like to clarify a couple of points.
The film is fantastic if you're a Silent Hill (of the games); the nuanced atmosphere of the games is there in spades along with significant nods to it, while being totally enjoyable by any who have no prior experience of Silent Hill. The above reviewer admits to not being into horror, instantly putting him/her at a predisposition to the film. It is a tightly wound film that, while suffering from flaws, is the all the richer for them and is a brilliantly enjoyable psychological horror.
I am the first to admit that it does not deserve the 5 stars I've given it, nor does it deserve the scathing 1 star above. 5 stars should be reserved for true classics but i feel the single star above needs to be weighed out...this film is a solid 3.5-4 stars in my books, some will agree, others won't. That's the nature of film. I just wish those attempting to review items would be reasonable with their ratings, there is nothing worse than someone with little appreciation of a genre or style and giving it a rubbish review because of it. 1 star reviews are for the *absolute lowest of the low*, a 2 would have been tolerable if you didn't enjoy it that much and a 3 for a film that obviously has been well done regardless of genre.

Ultimately, excellent film that will appeal to SH game fans more so than your average viewer, but is a solid 3-4 stars regardless. There are some ham-fisted lines delivered poorly here and there, some lower-budget effects shots (though for the most part it looks brilliant) and the film may be a little too obtuse for some (see above). But overall a fantastic film that everyone should give a go :)

This was a really bad and boring film. Admittedly, I'm not into horror, but there are some horror/thrillers I'm able to appreciate and this isn't one. The plot line was boring and silly, about a woman whose adopted daughter is sick so she takes her away to get cured and then they find all sorts of scary things hiding in this town that disappeared. There are satanic themes and it's generally rather boring. I didn't find it fun at all and don't recommend it.
