A woman named Rose, desperate to find her child Sharon, finds herself trapped in an alternate dimension as she searches for her daughter in a world of decay inhabited by strange beings. Over the protests of her husband, she flees with her child, heading for an abandoned town to which the child seems drawn. Sharon disappears in the town, and Rose follows what she thinks is her daughter's silhouette into what seems like an alternate reality. It's soon clear this place is not like anywhere she's ever been. It's smothered by fog, inhabited by a variety of strange beings and periodically overcome by a living Darkness that literally transforms everything it touches. Joined by Cybil, a local police officer, Rose searches for her little girl while learning the history of the strange town and realizing that Sharon is just a pawn in a larger game.

Well? Can we say: Silent Hill 1? (Cybil is back!)

You are correct...

Frankly, I hope they don't ruined this. I mean, I AM expecting to see Cybil knowing what going on but the way the whole story is, it look like Harry got replaced by a female. But the trailer seem like a mixed up edition from Silent Hill 1 and a little Silent Hill 3. Don't you agree, Shuyin?

I never played any of the Silent Hill games, i've always preferred Resident Evil. However I have watched my friend play the first three.

I did notice that a female plays the protagonist, though Harry was the main character in the first one. I'm sort of familiar with Cybil from the first one too. I might end up playing through the first game to get the full effect of the movie.

Wasn't the 3rd game a little girl in a mall. I don't think the little girl is going to be doing any heroics. I didn't see a mall. What about the trailer hinted on Silent Hill 3?

I've heard mixed reviews about videogame based movies. I heard resident evil was awesome from some people, but others thought it was terrible.

Then you've got Bloodrayne coming out too. We'll have to see about that. I've never played it but the game looks fun...

Silent Hill the movie... it sounds right to me for some reason. I can see it on the screen.

But it will never top the incredible-ness of the Super Mario Bros. movie... ahaha... ha...

BloodRayne already came out and the critics tore it to shreds.

The first Resident Evil wasn't bad and neither was the Doom movie. I liked the first Tomb Raider as well. Mmmmmmm Angelina.

The 3rd game doesn't have a little girl in a mall. Her name is Heather (I think her REAL name is Cherryl through) and happened to be a adoptive daughter, I think.

What is a "little of Silent Hill 3" is that you started of playing as Heather. Frankly, she is the first female protagonist you played as in Silent Hill 3. A little refence. But there is also a hospital and several area that greatly resemble toward to the first game.

Secondly, the mall isn't even nearby Silent Hill. If I remember, Heather took a subway and walk all the way to her apartment (and went through some building. The hell?) to find her father... Well, you get the idea.

For some odd reason I STILL want to waste my money on it. I'm not that big a fan of playing the game, but I love watching my brother play it. I just want to watch it. It should be one of they "scary" movies I go to with friends and get called a pansy. Just like I did during White Noise. XD

Yeah... except White Noise didn't have a "based on the first game" gene. So I doubt it is pretty much going to be "scary" if you already played the first game.

Spoiler:
Silent hill, a relatively unknown town in the United States
which has been suffering from false magical claims and its
tragic fate since the civil war, now is slowly re-establishing
itself, 7 years ago a huge fire burned a couple of houses in
the city area, after that the city started to change, now it
is one of the most famous holiday spots in the area. Many
people come to silent hill with their families just to enjoy
their time and have some fun.

Harry mason, a 36 year old writer is one of those people, he
used to come here often with his wife, seven years ago just
after the horrible fire occurred in the town harry and his
wife find a child laying on the side of the road exiting
from silent hill, they decide to keep the baby and name it
Cheryl, a couple of years after that Harry's wife suffers
a strange disease and passes away, now harry was left alone
with Cheryl, he raised Cheryl better then most people
would treat their own flesh and blood.

Silent hill was still Harry's favorite vacation spot, he
still went there often with Cheryl now, it was just another
vacation time when something went wrong. Cheryl was drawing
something in her sketchbook and harry was driving towards the
town, suddenly he notices a police bike coming in at a very
fast speed. The officer stays with Harry's car for a few
seconds then speeds on in front, harry ignores the officer
and continues back to his driving.

A little while later harry see's a wreck of a motorcycle on
the side, quickly identifying it harry turns around to see
the passing wreck , but he fails to notice the figure coming
ahead of the car in time, a young girl steps in front of the
car and harry tries his best to avoid the girl and in doing
so crashes the car, and gets knocked out.

When harry wakes up he finds Cheryl missing, she's not in
the car, so he gets out of the car and starts looking for her
in the town of silent hill..

The Midwich Elementary school. Harry went there as well. Did some stuff there too. Same school.

Cybil didn't act like she know everything by now (when she should since she appeared in Silent Hill... twice by the time the movie make it appearance.)

The traditional of radio grabling is still there... I think.

The environment also started off with snowing as well...

When Rose saw the body on the fence, she freaks and the monster behind her attacks. Happened with Harry.


In conclusion, it is highly going to be based on the first game. (Edited due to similar story in the beginning.)

I didn't bother to read the spoiler tag thing...

From just watching one of the trailers, it looks like it's the wife... and Harry is in the movie too... but they made the wife the star instead of Harry...

Where it makes total sense to do something like this, because Horror movies are only cool when the main character is a hot chick... it still pisses me off... Mostly because in the Game Harry's wife was dead, so if they wanted to make it the same or whatever, Rose's husband shouldn't be alive...

...

Sharon sounds enough like Cheryl to not piss me off... much... lol
