My Thoughts

I saw this movie in a movie theater back when it came out, the arrival at Silent Hill with the ash babies/creatures creeped me out, and this movie was better than the usual video game movie and it was not bad for a horror film.

For some reason many people seemed to not like this movie back when it came out, but I liked it better than the critics.

The end,
