I was watching Silent Hill the movie and it captured the feel of the first game really well the way Rose crashes the car because Gillespie as a young girl was in the middle of the road and even the ally way scene was like when Harry went looking for Cheryl, I didn't know the order was apart of the cult till the end of the movie.

Silent Hill Rule #21
Forget the movies if you want to know the series.

Honestly. But no, the movies were such an abomination I hate to think that I ever watched them in the first place.

I thought the movies were alright, to be honest. Don't forget that they're based on the games so don't expect everything to be the same.

The first movie was okay, and I wish there was a director's cut for all that missing content, 'cuz I'm fairly interested in what Gans wanted that the studio didn't.

The second movie is an abomination. I regret letting my sister talk me into watching it.

Now that we're at this point in the franchise, I'd be highly amused if a third movie came out that was based on one of the later games and handed it its ass.

It's what I'm trying to accomplish. A Silent Hill movie that makes up for Revelations' being such a crap movie. At least the first one had atmosphere.

I wish there was a way the Silent Hill community could support my efforts and get this paper out there.

When I first saw Gans' movie, I was disappointed. The atmosphere was epic, but it didn't capture the soul of the first game (or the series). But with time, that started to change. The more I watched the movie, the more I fell in love with it.. because I understood that it had its own soul and that I was using the wrong approach the whole time. Regardless first appearances, the story in itself is very different from the first game, thus it has its own rules and motivations. It's funny how with time it became one of my top favorites.

To sum up, in regards to Rule #21 mentioned by a member earlier, we shouldn't forget (reversed #21) Rule #22: "Forget the series if you want to know the movie."

*Notice how I wrote movie, not movieS, as nothing will ever help you understand Revelation since that garbage makes no fucking sense whatsoever.
