I was impressed by the film's production values and visual panache. Between the Rembrandt burnish of the cinematography and the antique-store detail of the design, ugliness has never looked so pretty.

A mesmerizing display of human grotesquerie like Hieronymous Bosch filtered through Clive Barker, and that's exactly how it should be.

It's one of the better videogame adaptations, up there with the original Silent Hill and, eh, Doom?
August 28, 2017
An incoherent and disappointing sequel made exclusively for gaming fans.
November 25, 2013
It manages to not only contort itself into a form that is simultaneously convoluted and stupid but it also skilfully avoids any audience engagement despite a tumultuous whirl of spectacle and noise.

The demon-haunted West Virginia town still gives the creeps... but this belated sequel proves to be only fitfully exciting and scary - mostly because the action stops every few minutes for yet another character to deliver reams of boring exposition.

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.

Just how terrible is SH3D? Well, at one point, writer-director Michael J. Bassett actually tries to scare you with a Kellogg's Frosted Pop-Tart. No kidding.

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.

I can't imagine anyone who hasn't played the video game who would give a shout-out to the 'Silent Hill' sequel.

It's like going through a cheesy house of horrors at the local carnival. You want it to end, but not because it's scary.

( ... ) saturated with over-the-top sound effects. Did nobody realise that it's called Silent Hill?
November 9, 2012
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.
November 7, 2012
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.
November 6, 2012
While Silent Hill: Revelation 3D may not allay your hankering for a solid story, it'll definitely satisfy your blood-lust.
November 4, 2012
Can't even offer up the flashy production design that aficionados of the game liked about the Christophe Gans-directed original.
November 2, 2012
A sacrilegious adaptation of an excellent video game, Silent Hill: Revelation will infuriate gamers, and just confuse everyone else.
November 2, 2012
"Come to Silent Hill" reads a "scary" message left for teen damsel Heather. Hell, no.
November 2, 2012
I realize it's called Silent Hill for a reason, but enduring this botched (video game-based) nightmare is like sleepwalking into the world's dullest Halloween party.

The random, hectic storyline has little rhyme or reason, the unimaginative 3D feels like a rip-off and only Clemens seems to be taking this seriously.
