I know that it met with mixed reviews, but I personally really enjoyed the Silent Hill movie adaptation. So I was super-excited to hear that they were doing a sequel, and seeming to focus on Silent Hill 3, one of my favorites in the series. The actress playing Heather looks dead-on, but now having seen this trailer for Silent Hill: Revelations 3D, I have... concerns.
Love the nurses, and that they've included the mannequin-parts creatures, because those always freaked me out. Pyramid Head looks like he's been working out a lot in the interim, and I almost squealed with joy to see the amusement park.
But there's something that doesn't feel quite right to me. I hate the idea that she's not just looking for her missing father, but also this boy. Why complicate things? Also, there seems to be a lot of Heather and this guy together in Silent Hill, which shouldn't be. It should be a solitary experience... that's what makes it scary.
Of course, the actual movie could be fine, and they just cut this together for the trailer to make it look like something else. (Kind of like how all the TV commercials for The Watch don't even give a hint that it's about aliens) I'm sure Sean Bean is in the first few minutes of the movie, and that's it. So hopefully the boy does the same. (Although since he's played by the delicious Kit Harington, I might be willing to allow some extra screen time) I also need to make sure that this movie was shot in 3D like the Resident Evil movies, and the effect wasn't added afterwards to increase box office, because that never looks as good.
I'm still totally going to see this opening weekend, regardless!
