I love the atmosphere of Silent Hill movie. It's damn near perfect. And the monster effects are great. Gans did great there. But the writing and overall story are just laughable at times. It's like polar opposites in the same body. I mean, the way the music goes with the scenes, the angles and shots, effects, even actors were great. But they butchered the story into some measly witch hunt. I really want to love this movie, even watched it over half a dozen times, but afterward, I feel disappointed.

I would love it if Gans directed another Silent Hill with a different writer. One that has a firmer grasp on what is Silent Hill.

I feel similarly. I enjoy the atmosphere through a lot of the movie, and the monster encounters and otherside transitions. And Cybil. :)
But those cult scenes... and that scene with dark Alessa talking... ugh.

I broke and bought the BluRay. And Revelations. They're are far from good, more so Revelations, but they make great background movies. I play Silent Hill movies when I write as I love the ambient sounds and music. Yeah, I could listen to the music, but I love background movies.

Dark Alessa is the worst character of the first movie hands down. Never liked her.

Once upon a time I didn't even liked the Alessa from the videogame, believe it or not. But I learned to like the character and it's one of my favorite characters from the series. The one from the first movie? No. Just no.

At least they corrected that mistake with Revelations. Memory of Alessa (it's Dark Alessa REBORN go to Hell) was awesome.

I really love the movie for the atmosphere and music. Before the movie came out, I was expecting the worst, so I pretty happy with what we ended up with. Which isn't necessarily a good thing.

But man do I ever agree about the 'witch hunt' aspect of it. I wish they just stuck with the damn story of the game but that always seems so much to ask.

It's a flawed as fuck movie but it still has a lot more to love for me than hate. Revelation is a lot harder to love bleh.

Last weekend on tv I caught just the 15 second march Christabella leads from the church to the hospital. I remembered why I loved the movie. It's bemusing how Gans mussed major points while doing the minor things so well.
