‘Silent Hill: Revelation 3D’ Clip & Image: Psycho Nurses & Hell Fire

Published 2 years ago by , Updated March 3rd, 2014 at 11:58 am,

Silent Hill: Revelation 3D hopes to recapture the hellish atmosphere and dread that its predecessor inspired. While the original isn’t exactly a masterpiece, it was a successful enough adaptation of the popular horror/mystery video game series to warrant a sequel – not to mention, it left plenty of a viewers with at least one or two twisted images or sequences burned into their brain.

Today’s clip from Silent Hill: Revelation shows that writer/director Michael J. Bassett (Solomon Kane) is definitely going for a nightmarish aesthetic all his own. Check out the aptly-named “Nurses” sequence above.

The clip of course recalls the “Nurses” scene from Silent Hill 1, which saw star Radha Mitchell (who is returning for this sequel) having to crawl through a gauntlet of short-skirted, bandaged-faced nightmare dames, armed with rusty scalpels. If you’re not getting the picture, such is the type of sequence that makes the Silent Hill games (and subsequently, the movies) so effective in their goosebump-inducement – even if the overarching narrative is not quite effective.

Game of Thrones star Sean Bean will also be back for the sequel film, which follows a new young protagonist (Adelaide Clemens), whose past leads her to the accursed town, and all the horrible truths that wait therein. Check out the official synopsis below:

In SILENT HILL: REVELATION 3D, Heather Mason (Clemens) and her father (Bean) have been on the run, always one step ahead of dangerous forces that she doesn’t fully understand. On the eve of her 18th birthday, plagued by horrific nightmares and the disappearance of her father, Heather discovers she’s not who she thinks she is. The revelation leads her deeper into a demonic world that threatens to trap her forever.

Now a new image, which shows things getting hot for Clemens’ character, Heather Mason:

Personally, I was a big fan of the original Silent Hill. Yes, the story was a convoluted mess, but there was something about the way director Christophe Gans (Brotherhood of the Wolf) captured that dark and twisted version of hell (inspired by the games) that just made the film memorable – not something you hear often about a horror film, these days. Whether this sequel will be able to achieve at least that much ( rather than being just a cash-grab b-movie sequel with a  3D gimmick) remains to be seen; however, this first clip certainly makes it seem like the latter is more likely than the former.

Silent Hill: Revelation 3D will be in theaters on October 26, 2012.

  1. Silent Hill (2006 film) was horrible with a passion !

    • ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND? IT WAS THE ONLY DESCENT MOVIE BASED ON A VIDEOGAME BY FAR!!!

  2. I love the SilentHill video games, i have the 1st SilentHill movie & want this to add to my collection.
    However too bad the story is wrong from the start.
    Seventeen years before the start of Silent Hill 3, Harry Mason defeated a god brought forth by the resident cult of Silent Hill and at the ending, was given a baby girl to care for. Heather, the teenaged adopted daughter of Harry Mason.
    Having arrived at her residence, Heather discovers that her father has been killed by a monster under Claudia’s orders, who tells her that she will be waiting for her in Silent Hill and leaves.

    The story of Heather is already written out & yet hollywood still has to add their take on it & get it wrong then blame fans for losing interest.

    SilentHill is setup so any game developer or hollywood director can add to the SilentHill storyline, just like resident evil it’s an open story….idiot proof. Yet idiots find a way to screw it up.

    • SilentHill & resident evil is setup where you could have your own character for the lead in the SilentHill or resident evil universe.
      As long as it was kept to believable & followed the SilentHill or resident evil guidelines hollywood could’ve made the SilentHill & resident evil movies awesome.
      SilentHill character: john thumb.
      Reason for going to SilentHill: his dead military buddies calls him on the phone & leads him to SilentHill.
      So many possibilities but NO, hollywood tries rewriting an already written story claiming it as theirs & getting it wrong in the process.

      • So you’re saying with Silent Hill they could make up a story and keep it believable, but they are getting it wrong because they’re making up a story?

        The thing is the makers of these movies try to keep a certain style and tone in keeping with the original games, but what you need to understand is a 10 hour game does not translate well into a 90 minute movie. Things need to be done and sacrifices need to be made in order to get it onto the screen. And usually the studios don’t give a s*** about the original IP and they are going on the writing of the script. To them the important part is that the movie’s script makes sense, and I understand that. The writer/director of the first movie got the basic ideas right. Silent Hill is a purgatorial town stuck between Heaven and Hell and the characters are forced through incredible trials while trying to find out what the f*** is going on and escaping with their sanity. They did that in the first movie and I’m sure they will in this movie. You not being a fan of the movie doesn’t justify your claims that Hollywood is trying to make the movie their own, claiming it as theirs. They have a job to do, and translating from one medium to another is ALWAYS difficult. Show me a video game movie translated to the big screen that’s 100% correct. You can’t do it. And as for the first Silent Hill movie, I thought it was excellent for what it was. Sure the movie could have been a little better in some areas but when you have a budget and studio approval to worry about you’re going to be forced to make sacrifices in the name of getting the project done in a reasonable time limit. I loved Silent Hill and I can’t wait for Revelation…

        I’ll wait to pass judgment on that movie until AFTER I see it.

        • No i’m saying don’t try & mimic the storylines & characters already written in the SilentHill games getting it wrong in the process, i’m saying make up new characters new storyline.

  3. I actually liked the first film. I wasn’t a fan of the crazy church people though.

  4. I like the look of the chinimatagraphy.

    Is pyramid head returning?

  5. Just beautiful!

  6. Looks like more of a teen slasher than the dark and creepy and grainy cinematography and lighting of the first. But it is after all only 1 1/2 minutes of a clip.

  7. I expect it to be rubbish. Which is a shame as there is so much that could be done with this IP. I always thought Hideo Nakata (Ring, Dark Water) would’ve nailed this. There is a scene in Dark Water in which it focuses on the little girl walkiing home from school, back to the apartment building and onto the lift that felt very Silent Hill to me. In tone, pacing, atmosphere.

    Instead, we get the next Resident Evil franchise. Ho hum.

  8. The thing that dissapointed me in Silent Hill 2006. Was they did not make Dhalia a bad guy like in the game. Nor did they make Pyramid Head a sick sadistic killing machine who has sex with maniquins. But it was a good shot after all. I was slightly satisfied, but I’m trying my best not to give high hopes for this film. I am excited though.

  9. Kofi do you know when the trailer will be released?

  10. Ah cool! I’m glad they’ve gone for something different that we didn’t see from the first movie……oh wait a second…..

  11. That new image looks like it’s right out of a video game. I’m looking forward to this. I also feel the first Silent Hill was a great adaptation of the games. Hope the sequel will feature more of the Hell World.

  12. Annoying. There’s no such thing as heaven nor hell in the SH universe, get your damn mythology right cause you’re making it sound like devil may cry. And PH wasn’t sexual in nature in Alessas psychology, only James’s in the second game.

    Amazing how many people criticize the movie with no damn backup knowledge in the silent hill mythos.

  13. Why is the story of James Sunderland from Silent Hill 2 game being ignored. SH2 was the only truly great idea in the entire franchise! A man looking for his dead wife (who he killed) in a creepy old town. All of the horrific beings and events were based on his fractured psychology. They will never get the it right. The idea of Silent Hill was influenced by the movie Jacob’s Ladder (great film), we need something more like that rather than Resident Evil! Fingers crossed for this but on the evidence of this clip – it looks weak.

  14. I ve made a big painful abt real d story in hell fire l felt almost cry in my eye nd open my eye dat angelica ws dre both of heaven nd hell,she z so dreadful in her sin when she saw their people re in hell nd she would repent 4rm her sin 2 against d demon want 2 destory their people being tornment,they re yet being tornment it z nt easy bt l ve made a believe in her wat she said nice

  15. I don’t care about the criticism or bad out looks on this movie. All that matters is Silent Hill is back and by the looks of it, it’s back with a bite. I watched the trailer and it captured a lot of the horror vibes that the games brought. I believe that this movie will probably be an entire mixture of a few of the games not just one. Personality I am very excited and cannot wait for the movie to come to theaters. In my mind there will be no dispointment, at least they put some effort into it.
