Yesterday we were treated to an interesting new clip from director Michael J. Bassett’s “Silent Hill: Revelation”, the long-awaited sequel to Christophe Gans’ 2006 adaptation of the popular video game. Honestly, the first entry was a very pleasant surprise, capturing the atmosphere and intensity of the story while remaining accessible to those who hadn’t played the game itself. The sequel, however, has a strong William Malone/”The House on Haunted Hill” vibe to it, which is a little disconcerting. Still, “Revelation” will get my business, as I’m hoping that it retains some of the qualities present in its predecessor.
In order to keep the buzz going, a new image has been released. Honestly, it’s not very engaging, which leads me to wonder why certain pics are chosen over others. Someone must have felt it was the right choice, so there it is, at the top of the article, for better or worse.
Here’s what the flick is all about:
Heather Mason and her father have been on the run, always one step ahead of dangerous forces that she doesn’t fully understand, Now 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.
“Silent Hill: Revelation” stars Adelaide Clemens, Kit Harington, Radha Mitchell, Sean Bean, Deborah Kara Unger, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Malcolm McDowell. Look for the film to creep out moviegoers on October 26th, 2012. And if you missed the previously-released clip, take a peek at the video embedded below. Warning: Foul language ahead.
