Fresh: although it is rarely if ever jump-out-of-your-seat scary, Silent Hill is an unremittingly creepy municipality of the mind where motherhood, mystery and madness have come home to stay.

Rotten: Stuffed with cheap effects and devoid of tension, this French-Japanese-U.S. co-production contributes exactly zilch to the rich film history of those three nations.

I was impressed. Never played the games and the movie was a good plot and interesting characters and great backdrop. Loved it.

Staying true to the awesome-ass abandoned city background of the video games, Silent Hill takes it's twisted-as-shit storyline and imagery and sets itself apart from the other supernatural horror films that have come out in the past decade or so. I wasn't sure I'd even like it, but after watching it I thoroughly enjoyed this film.

Not the greatest of it's kind, but it works well for the type of atmosphere it's trying to accomplish. The visuals are pretty cool and it works well as an action/horror movie with some good characters. The story is interesting and definitely worth your time, it's just not anything amazing. Had this been made a few years earlier it might be different, but as it stands it's sort've sub par to other movies made before. I do like the direction and visuals, which makes it a really fun movie.
