I had been warned by many of my colleagues. I had been warned by many of my friends. "Silent Hill: Revelation" was terrible. The critics hated it. The fans seemed to generally hate it. The chances of me liking it? Slim to none. It's not my fault though. I'm a franchise whore and I owe it to you, blood brethren, to finally get around to watching and reviewing this long standing second "Silent Hill" film. Oh yeah, it's bad. It's very, very bad.
Sharon (Clemens), who now goes by the name Heather because her and her father (Bean) are on the run, has been having nightmares about a horrific carnival filled with infernal faceless creatures. As it would happen, the people of the cursed Silent Hill have been searching for her. Waiting to bring her back. They kidnap her father to bring her to the ash covered place, but what could they want with her?
To give my review some context, I have to say that even the first "Silent Hill" isn't a great film. It was a bit long and the story could be a bit confusing. It did, however, have stunning atmosphere and the visual charm of director Christophe Gans. When he dropped off of this sequel and Michael J. Bassett stepped on, I already knew that "Revelation" was in trouble. Trouble isn't a harsh enough term for it. "Revelation" is single handedly worse in every aspect to the original - and that's from a guy who didn't think the original one was a great film to begin with.
