‘Silent Hill: Revelation 3D’ Trailer: Welcome Back to Hell

Published 3 years ago by , Updated February 15th, 2014 at 10:00 pm,

Silent Hill: Revelation 3D writer/director Michael J. Bassett (Solmon Kane) is intent on delivering a standalone (disturbing) blend of psycho-horror, mystery, and thrills, while also heavily incorporating elements from the Silent Hill video games that fans appreciate. He has quite the catalog of deranged boogeymen at his disposal, ranging from demonic nurses armed with surgical tools to spider-like creatures made out of decaying mannequin parts.

The new trailer for Revelation 3D makes the film appear to work as a standalone horror flick, but nonetheless overflows with Silent Hill iconography (such as classic baddie, Pyramid Head). Whether or not Bassett is also going to be successful at delivering a satisfying viewing experience, is another matter.

Revelation 3D features a new protagonist played by Adelaide Clemens (essentially an unknown, here in the States) and reunites Games of Thrones duo Sean Bean and Kit Harington. Here is the synopsis:

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.

The cast is rounded out by franchise newcomers Carrie-Anne Moss (the Matrix trilogy) and Malcolm McDowell, along with returning players Deborah Kara Unger and Radha Mitchell (in limited capacity).

Bassett was full of praise for Christophe Gans’ first Silent Hill movie at the Comic-Con 2012 Revelation 3D panel, calling it a marvelous cinematic representation of the SH universe (there are certainly fans who’d agree). He promises Revelation 3D will surpass that film thanks to its cutting-edge technical qualities and native 3D – though, those could (conversely) be the semi-sequel’s downfall.

There’s a lot of atmosphere and hellish visuals that impress in the Revelation 3D trailer, but it’s weakened by the polished shooting/editing style that 3D filmmaking requires (and distracting CGI imagery). On the other hand: if Bassett weaves an intriguing mythology, then Revelation 3D could still offer a better story than Gans’ film (even if it lacks as much visceral punch).

Silent Hill: Revelation 3D opens in U.S theaters on October 26th, 2012.

  1. As a longtime Silent Hill gamer & fan I am SOOO looking forward to this–COME ON HALLOWEEN!!!! #silenthillrevelations3D

  2. i just wish http://www.cosplay.com/costume/56928/ was a professional actress.

  3. That looks like a combination of Silent Hill 3 and SH: The Room.

    I think I need to go play 3 again. I haven’t had any nightmares lately.

  4. 3D,3D,3D,3D,3D,3D,3D,3D.


  5. looks okey ish,

  6. Pyramid head has been working out.

  7. the good thing is that this is not a reboot. it was good to see sean bean again,so they follow the events of the first part. i hope it will be a creepy ride with a good story.

  8. I don’t understand.. who is “Heather”? The daughter’s name was Sharon in the first film.. and she remained trapped in the “other dimension” with her mother at the end of that film.

    It looks cool, however. I’m just not hot for the 3D. I’d rather more energy spent making sure the script works, than wasting time on making “cool 3D effects”.

    • This film is based on the third Silent Hill game…Heather’s father is the protagonist of the first game, which the first film was loosely based on.

  9. Wow, looks way better then the first. But why is Sean Bean in it again? If Rose and Sharon are no where to be seen why him?

    • I just read somewhere that it would seem that Heather is Sharon… go figure.

  10. Cannot wait, cannot wait, may have to see it in 3d even though i am not a fan of 3d.

  11. Looks pretty sweet however like some others I’m a bit confused about the continuation

  12. This movie is sweet.. heather is sharon and alessa combined into a better version and better life of them. Remember in first movie Alessa walking creepy towards sharon and sharon faints? at the end of the movie she walks all creepy and weird…they combined together…but part of the game is that heather is both combined.. the new after life of them put together is confusing but thats silent hill to you pure master piece..if you played SH 1 a baby is at the end of movie and that is Heather. The dad pick up.

  13. Cant wait and the nurse is awesome!

    New sweet trailer

  14. Why does it seem like those who want to see this movie the most are people who’ve never played the game?

    • I want to go see it, but I’ve played the game. Even though I didn’t get a chance to play the first two I read all about them.

  15. I am the greatest fan of silent hill.
    And I am going to see it this eve.
    I am so excited.
    I am gonna keep my fingers crossed.
