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

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

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.

An ugly, assaultive collection of jump-scares.

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.

It confirms once again that with the notable exception of Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, a film that feels like a videogame is never a positive development.

With horror altogether absent and a plot drowning in insipid convolutions, it's a film whose early warning to Heather should be heeded: "Don't go to Silent Hill."

A cheaper, cheesier sequel that's worse than its predecessor on every level (save being a half-hour shorter) and takes no special advantage of the stereoscopic process.

Only true devotees of the game are likely to recognize many of the figures on the screen, or care about a byzantine story stitched together from innumerable horror and fantasy shows.
