Films viewed in 2011

198. Silent Hill

In Canadian on August 30, 2011 at 10:54 AM

Dir. Christophe Gans

A woman goes in search for her daughter, within the confines of a strange, desolate town called Silent Hill. Based on the video game.

MY TAKE

Saying this is a step-above most video game adaptations still isn’t saying much. The difference here is that Silent Hill really feels like a horror film first, despite its origins. I  also give the film points for the strange absence of male characters. The story, however, is overlong, but it’s nice to see screenwriter Roger Avery put his Canadian passport to use for CanCon points (pre-manslaughter charges, of course).
