Did You Know?
In the film, Silent Hill is a desolate ghost town that had been abandoned because of a dangerous 30-year-old coal fire burning in the mines under the town. Screenwriter Roger Avary used a real-life town as the inspiration for Silent Hill: Centralia, Pennsylvania. Centralia is almost completely deserted due to a mine fire burning right under the community for 40 years. Avary saw what Centralia had become, as well as its history, and decided to use its past as the basis for Silent Hill.
When Rose first enters Silent Hill, right before the camera starts circling around her, you can see that her locket isn't a locket at all but an oval key chain.
Sharon! She's not here! Oh, god. Christopher, can you see anything? Sharon! Sharon!
Best Game Movie Adaptation Yet!
I'm not sure what the original comment leaver saw last night, but it
certainly wasn't Silent Hill.
I saw a critic screening last night, and must say I was highly
impressed. As a fan of the games, and anything related to them, my
faith has been firmly established in Gans and Avery, and I can only
wish for sequels.
The atmosphere was perfect, the acting was on point, the creatures were
amazing, well, everything was amazing.
The town itself looks just like the town we love, and it's almost like
coming home again. You'll see what I mean when you finally get to see
Just be prepared for a disturbing, bloody (oh man, the blood), and
genuinely creepy ride.
I'd say more, but giving spoilers would be like slapping you in the
Go see it!
