There has to be someone out there who can make a successful video-game adaptation because faith is being lost year after year and Silent Hill: Revelation does nothing for the many unwavering believers.

The only solace is that there is no direct threat of a sequel.

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.

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.

Hollywood, this isn't good enough. Silent Hill deserves better. Audiences deserve better. Video games deserve better. And frankly, the film industry deserves better.

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.

I would rather go to Hell than sit through that movie again.

This mess makes no sense and plods along for 90 minutes throwing things at us that are neither scary nor contributing to the tale.

"Come to Silent Hill" reads a "scary" message left for teen damsel Heather. Hell, no.

Silent Hill: Revelation fundamentally misunderstands the appeal its source material.

"Do not go to Silent Hill!" That's one of the first lines of dialogue, but by that point you've probably already realized the magnitude of your mistake.

A sacrilegious adaptation of an excellent video game, Silent Hill: Revelation will infuriate gamers, and just confuse everyone else.

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.

An ugly, assaultive collection of jump-scares.

Put this much effort into bringing your idea of Hell to the screen, film fans will start calling you Satan. And not in a good way.

With Bean unable to save the unsavable, we're left with waves of hard-working special effects trying to torture Heather instead of being able to enjoy a top star on form.

( ... ) saturated with over-the-top sound effects. Did nobody realise that it's called Silent Hill?

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

It's in too much of a rush, and tries to cram in so much plot that unless you're familiar with the game it's closely adapted from, chances are it will leave you baffled.

More of the same, on a cut-rate budget, without Gans's atmospheric reverie.
