Another horror franchise that needs to be terminated.

Part disturbing, part daft, thanks to an incredibly poor script (which makes no sense whatsoever) and some patchy performances, but the sequel's striking cinematography can't be knocked.

Incomprehensible, ridiculously humorless horror fantasy.

Silent Hill: Revelation 3D is a sequel to the slightly less-mad horror film Silent Hill, both of them based on a video game. This makes it a rare triple-header of indications that this is not a film for the more mature moviegoer.

Radha Mitchell visits Sean Bean in a mirror cameo. 'Do I look fat in this mirror?' Radha asked. 'I wouldn't know,' quipped Sean. 'This movie isn't reflecting well on anybody.'

Silent Hill: Revelation 3D is a mixed bag of creepy and downright captivating visual set-pieces coupled with melodramatic dialogue and an overly-complicated storyline.

"Revelation" is incredibly boring as well as totally baffling.

It's a shame Silent Hill: Revelation suffers the same doomed fate as most modern horror movies, bumbling through a shockingly disconnected screenplay which strings together moments that could have been salvaged otherwise.

Unfortunately, the writing is so weak and comes up so short that all the striking imagery amounts to practically nothing.

Demonstrates what half the budget and twice the story can do to turn a fake nightmare into a real chore.

Set piece, set piece, exposition, set piece, boss fight, set piece, more exposition, boss fight, boss fight, open the door for another sequel, the end.

The good news for crummy-horror-movie fans is that there's a whole lot more fun in this one since it's dumber and shorter than the first entry.

The distinction between actors and special effects shrinks ever further in the video game-turned-horror film Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, which reduces its human players to plastic action figures in tired genre settings.

Silent Hill: Revelation 3D quickly devolves into a smorgasbord of sutured faces and blades poking the viewer in the eye.

It's never a good sign when the trailers playing before a film have richer, more complete narratives than the feature you've paid to see.

Silent Hill Revelation 3D is an inferior sequel in every way, shape and form, a horror sequel that fails to either intrigue or scare, and one that just might have killed the franchise cold-dead.

Once the 3-D special effects look dated, this head-scratcher of a movie could be ripe to become a camp classic. But for now, the humorless approach to this inane mess is embarrassing rather than hilarious.

Silent Hill is not a place you want to go, and that applies for moviegoers as well as this videogame adaptation's characters.

Let's forget the fact that the demon killed everyone in the town in the first film because obviously the filmmakers did.
