What is it about?

This is how Wikipedia describes this movie:

Silent Hill is a 2006 French-Canadian psychological horror film directed by Christophe Gans and written by Roger Avary, Gans, and Nicolas Boukhrief.

The film is an adaptation of Konami’s 1999 video game Silent Hill.

It stars Radha Mitchell, Sean Bean, Laurie Holden, Deborah Kara Unger, Kim Coates, Tanya Allen, Alice Krige, and Jodelle Ferland.

The film follows Rose, who takes her adopted daughter Sharon to the town of Silent Hill, for which Sharon cries while sleepwalking.

Arriving at Silent Hill, Rose is involved in a car accident and awakens to find Sharon missing; while searching for her daughter, she fights a local cult while uncovering Sharon’s connection to the town’s dark past.

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,
