silent hill Silent Hill: Revelation 3D Motion Poster: Pyramid Head in Action

No one would consider director Christophe Gans’ Silent Hill (2006) a blockbuster by any stretch of the imagination. Yet, the film – which earned a $47 million domestic box office take ($97 million with international totals included) against a $50 million production budget – has found its niche with a cult following comprised of both horror aficionados and fans of the video game series on which it is based.

Now Silent Hill: Revelation 3D – the sequel from writer/director Michael J. Bassett – is set to hit theaters later this month. The film stars Adelaide Clemens, Kit Harington, Sean Bean and Radha Mitchell, while Malcolm McDowell and Carrie-Anne Moss join the franchise.

We’ve already seen the spooky trailer for the film, and courtesy of Yahoo! Movies, we now have a look at a new motion poster – featuring fan-favorite monster, Pyramid Head. See it below:

The first Silent Hill film had a distinct vision of Hell on Earth, and if the marketing materials for the sequel – including the above motion poster – are any indication, then Bassett has done a strong job of sticking to that while also improving on the groundwork the first film established, including the introduction of even more sinister characters that fans of the video games will undoubtedly recognize.

Bassett previously wrote and directed Solomon Kane, the 2009 film based on the comic book character. While the film is considered a box office flop, it received a positive critical reception, specifically for its dark, atmospheric aesthetic. This is a skill that will surely benefit the world of Silent Hill and lends itself to a bit of confidence in his take on the franchise.

Still, the sequel will face stiff competition at theaters this Halloween, largely from Paranormal Activity 4. Are you excited for Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, Screen Rant readers? Or does this seem like an unnecessary horror sequel? Let us know in the comments.

  1. This movie looks like trash. The first Silent Hill was awesome, what the hill happened?!

    • Honestly it’s the clip that came out before the trailer that is keeping my interest. The trailers are not that good. The clip with the nurses however… I like how the tension is played out.

      • Agreed. The nurse clip has boosted my confidence that Bassett may actually know what he is doing.

  2. Oh yay more compressing and mutilating of four games into two movies weeeeee

  3. Bring the baby bottles to the theater cause this flick is gonna be one heck of a suck fest

  4. Solomon Kane was Fantastic,
    the Clip shown a while back looked good as well,
    and the Trailer…could have been better !
    But I will trust the Director on this….i think he can do it !

  5. I just watched the first film again, it’s been years. Yes, it was a great representation of the game even though they butchered the most important part…the ending. Seeing how the ending of the game actually makes sense for Silent Hill 3 to open up, the film does not leave a good opening for a direct sequel. Unless they actually explain how Hea…I mean Sharon made it out. Which I doubt they do, because people will pay to see it regardless. Hell I am going to see it just so I can b**** about it. However, the trailer for Revelations is more entertaining than the whole first film.

    • “Unless they actually explain how Hea…I mean Sharon made it out. Which I doubt they do, because people will pay to see it regardless.”

      Basset said there will be an explanation for that.

      “Hell I am going to see it just so I can b**** about it.”

      Are you serious?! Don’t you have anything better to do with your time?
