Silent Hill: Revelation (3D) Review
December 9, 2012
In my attempt to catch up with my incredibly belated reviews, and try to clear the backlog; I'm writing very short reviews on some of the more disappointing films that have come out over the past few months. Next up: Silent Hill: Revelation 3D
Another Hallowe’en, another horror failure. Picking up a few years down the line from Silent Hill, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D promises more gore, more blood and an extra dimension! What could go wrong?
Heather Mason (Adelaide Clemens) and her father (Sean Bean) are on the run, under the guise that they’re running from the law. On the eve of her 18th birthday, plagued by nightmares and devastated after the sudden disappearance of her father; Heather discovers she’s not quite who she thinks she is. This revelation runs the risk of pulling her into the demonic world of Silent Hill, trapping her forever.
Despite its dramatic title; Silent Hill: Revelation 3D was one giant bore fest. I did plan to write an ironic review about how marvelous the extra dimension was; how deep the characters were; how terrifying it all was but I just couldn’t bring myself refer to Michael J. Bassett’s mediocre movie as enjoyable, even sarcastically. The one redeeming feature of Silent Hill: Revelation 3D is the creepy portrayal of the iconically scary characters that frequent the original video games, especially the nurses and Pyramid Head. This still isn’t a good enough reason to recommend this tired, weak, incomprehensible sequel.
