One of the more under the radar movies to show up in Hall H at San Diego Comic Con had to be Silent Hill: Revelation 3D. It’s not that the first movie was horrible, but I don’t think anyone expected to see a sequel made. The Silent Hill panel gave attendees a chance to find out if they should get excited for the new movie not.
The panel started off with two clips from the film. One featured the films heroine, Heather (Adelaide Clemens), facing off against a mannequin monster. The other clip featured Heather attempting to rescue Vincent (Game of Thrones star Kit Harrington) for a group of featureless nurses. The clips captured the feel of the video games, and were at least a little creepy. Unfortunately, the clips were shown without any context, and fell a little flat on the crowd. The 3D in the film looked okay, and the films writer/director Michael J. Bassett said that the film was shot entirely in 3D.
The film looked okay, but the bigger announcement was that Konami would be bringing the Silent Hill experience to Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights at both their California and their Orlando location. The creators of attraction said that it will feature film quality sets and they promised it will scare the crap out of those who attend.
Overall, the film seemed to leave many in the audience fairly cold. Those on the panel didn’t do the best job of selling the film to the audience. It would have been better if they had maybe shown an actual trailer or some hint of what the story of the movie is. The film will be out on October 26th, 2012, so check it out if you’re a fan of horror movies featuring months with a low mouth to face ratio.
