Christophe Gans' 2006 adaptation of game studio Konami's Silent Hill was a rare thing: a video-game-to-feature-film crossover that actually worked. Naturally, hopes for its sequel, Silent Hill: Revelations 3D, centre around it pulling off the same trick.
Directed by Michael J. Bassett (Solomon Kane, Deathwatch), it brings back old hands from the first film (Deborah Kara Unger, Sean Bean) as well as introducing newcomers such as the lead, Adelaide Clemens, who plays Heather Mason, the protagonist from Silent Hill 3 who is used by the baddie of the piece, Claudia Wolf (Carrie-Anne Moss), in an attempt to bring about the rebirth of "God".
As for the inter-dimensional town of Silent Hill, well, that's back too, and you can see a little bit of what it's getting up to these days in this handy clip below, featuring Clemens and Unger.
The plot of the sequel sees Clemens' Heather Mason turning 18 years old before realising that the person she thought she was isn't the person she actually is. This revelation takes her to another dimension, and to Silent Hill, and all the dangers that lurk there...
Intrigued? Silent Hill: Revelation 3D is out on October 31. So that's a scary fillum out on Hallowe'en, then. Who saw that coming, eh?
