Trailer Bulletin: Silent Hill

From the director of "Brotherhood of the Wolf" and the writer of "The Rules of Attraction," (two criminally underrated flicks in my book) comes the horror game adaptation known as "Silent Hill." And I may be nuts, but based on this teaser trailer, I'm thinking this flick might just be the one to break that "video game movies invariably suck" theory that's been the bane of genre fans for quite a few years now.

"A woman named Rose, desperate to find her child Sharon, finds herself trapped in an alternate dimension as she searches for her daughter in a world of decay inhabited by strange beings. Over the protests of her husband, she flees with her child, heading for an abandoned town to which the child seems drawn. Sharon disappears in the town, and Rose follows what she thinks is her daughter's silhouette into what seems like an alternate reality. It's soon clear this place is not like anywhere she's ever been. It's smothered by fog, inhabited by a variety of strange beings and periodically overcome by a living Darkness that literally transforms everything it touches. Joined by Cybil, a local police officer, Rose searches for her little girl while learning the history of the strange town and realizing that Sharon is just a pawn in a larger game."

Sony will release "Silent Hill," which stars Radha Mitchell, Sean Bean, Laurie Holden, and Deborah Kara Unger, on April 21st.
