So, there was this movie I saw a while back, a brilliant horror movie set in the first world war, with a brilliant atmosphere and some extremely freaky shit going on, and I completely forgot what it was called.
So today I decide to learn more about Michael J. Bassett to see what to expect from SH2, and so I look up trailers of the 3 movies he's made.
Low and behold, Deathwatch was the name of that kickass movie.
Very happy now, Silent Hill 2 is going to be great!!

though some parts of the trailer caught my eye, it seemed B- Movieish. actually, i watched wilderness and it seemed not so well made either. and from summeries of his other work, it seems thats all MJB makes. low budget/indepedent movies. im not impressed, though he deserves credit for his work compared to most directors/ writers that do the same. but i dont think SH:R will be for me if its gonna be like this. though, to be fair ill watch his other work, just dont see myself wrong at the moment.
WARNING: Some Parts of Reality May Seem Violent or Cruel.
Having just recently seen Deathwatch, it seems to me that MJB doesn't need to prove he can make a good SH movie. In fact, he already has with Deathwatch. It's creepy psychological horror with copious amounts of fog. It has a very similar atmosphere to SH, and the ambiguous ending is pulled off far better than it was in the SH movie. Deathwatch really impressed me, and the acting was quite good for the most part. let's face it: when is Andy Serkis not awesome?
