i half-loved this movie. it captured the town’s terrifying shifts from real ghost-town to dream-like haze to nightmarish corrosion. visions of abominations that could have been the children and adults of silent hill–children who are still burning to death, faceless nurses that no longer move like humans, a pyramid-head reaper, humans twisted, mutilated, and bent out of shape with eyes still open and evil intact–followed me around even with the lights on–and long after i finished watching. with the game, we are left frustrated because all we got were hints, even when we have killed the beast. with the movie, we’ll get the answers–and silent hill transforms once again… to that of a b-movie with a director who can’t shut up.
