Video Game movies have set a president of being horrible. Silent Hill may be the first movie to have broken the rule. Silent Hill stands on its own as a good movie completely avoiding the need of any knowledge of the video game series (which were great games by the way). Silent Hill is the name of a town that suffered a horrible fate. Now the town exists between reality and hell. You follow a mother in search of her daughter and stumble across the horror that has crafted Silent Hill. Visually the film is perfect. The use of color is masterful. The special effects are amazingly twisted, and easily have some of the most disturbing visuals in a movie. The music fits the mood so well, it may send chills down your neck. The acting is spot on. This is a great horror movie in a psychological sense. Enjoy.
