DAILY MANIFESTO

Silent Hill: Revelation Could Actually Be Pretty Awesome

Posted on Tuesday, August 28 @ 15:30:00 Eastern by sara_gunn


Video game movies, for the most part, are garbage. Sure, some of them are good fun; I’m totally not at all ashamed that I own the Mario Bros. movie on DVD, and I have a lot of tolerance for the Tomb Raider movies, mostly because of Angelina. But for all those, we also have Alone in the Dark, Doom, and those Resident Evil atrocities.
 
But then we have Silent Hill. Not only is it the only video game movie I’d say actually correctly represents the game it’s based on, it’s also a legitimately good film. With a lot of hot ladies. And Sean Bean.
 
I know, I know, the plot’s all wrong. It’s true. But plot doesn’t necessarily make a film adaptation for me. If I want the plot, I’ll go to the original source. The film should be a representation of the original story. If the characters, symbols, and visuals are on the level, the film is good. Silent Hill is totally there.
 
So Silent Hill: Revelation comes out in October and, I must admit, I’m a little bit stoked. Could it possibly be that Silent Hill will go the way of X-Men and Star Wars and Terminator and actually have a better sequel? Probably not, but it still looks the sh*t. And it’s based on Silent Hill 3, my second favorite SH, so we can look forward to some hardcore Heather action.
 
And the cast is freaking fantastic! The delicious Radha Mitchellas well as Sean Bean, who just can’t shake that pesky curse of hisreprise their roles from the first film, and Carrie Anne-Moss and Malcolm McDowell join as Claudia and Leonard Wolf, respectively, which will be pleasantly creepy. Kit Harington (who we know better as Jon Snow) is playing Vincent, which does seem a bit bizarre, so we’ll see how it goes. The only one missing is Cybil
