    Like I said in my review of the film.

    Visually, EXCELLENT. The score, tone, colors, and sets rock. The killings and monster attacks great...but unless you followed all the games, you are lost in the parallel stories. THere are too many open gaps and and not enough closure or expanation to events.

    It is a movie made for the gamers, and is very true in that aspect, but lacks in Movie plot and such.

    I still enjoy the film and own the DVD. But I still also agree that the first part of the film is seperate from the last 20 min which reallt seem like 2 differentf films. And in areas it was too long and should have been tightened.

    I still didn't help you but watch it a few more times.

    I loved the games and the movie. I hope they make more of both but, what I would love to see is a Silent Hill haunted house, now that would be wicked.

    I really did like the games (haven't played them in quite a while)...I guess they really can offer the tension that the movie just couldn't. When you're playing, you really sort of fear for your character and ponder the unknown. The movie was really just eye candy to me. We've had some elements in our haunt in the past the were inspired by the sets in the game. I think a haunt based on it would be really cool. Give me a budget, the liscensing and let's do it. LOL.

    ..better have enough money in the budget for those 50 fog machines.
    Duplicating the fly-ash might be abit trickier.

    I loved the movie, hadnt played the games before I saw it. I started playing them from #1 and i'll go from there. I am trying to do a few scenes this year that resemble the chain link and flesh feel. That's how i described how I wanted my knew website, and his is getting a good idea on it.

    I just realised what "Silent Hill" reminded me of.
    Anyone here , besides me, ever have a concussion and then the deep sleep following ? You find yourself stuck in a dream that won't end, even though you know it's a dream, it doesn't make any difference, it just goes on and on.......
    .......I may wake up from this long dream someday when they forget to replentish my IV and miss emptying my bed pan.
    Good help for the helpless is hard to find, especially if you can't wake up!

    An event based off of the film would be sweet. You would def. need to get snow thrower from TW to make the ash effect and a ton of foggers, but it would be pretty sweet.

    I couldn't wait to watch it but guessed right away as soon as she said 'your bleeding that were dead'. When her husband came into the town and it wasn't raining ask that confirmed it.

    Plus I didn't find the monsters scary at all. Visually stunning but pointless to the story line. The religious freaks were the scary ones. I also found too many holes in the plot. Why they burned, but the burned victim lived and had a daughter... what happened to the nurse... what happened to the cop...

    One move I did watch recently that I liked was Hostel!! I am making a mini guiloteen for validating the tickets this year. The old factory was a brilliant set. Did anyone see Hostel?

    Next on my list is the Wickerman remake.
