The best video game movie adaptations of all time
Using the story, characters, and dialogue from the source material to hatch a good adaptation is one thing. But just using the atmosphere and successfully doing it is in a league of its own. While Christophe Gans silent Hill is a loose adaptation of Konami’s survival horror, it nurtures a feeling from the original that creeps into the viewer’s mind just like the setting of the game.
The story itself is as revealing as the haze of Silent Hill 2 – a young girl, Sharon, played by Jodelle Ferland, disappears after being delighted to travel to the town of Silent Hill. Her mother Rose, played by Radha Mitchell, sets out to find her. And things happen, as with everything silent Hill, or the horror really, the title.
Here’s the charm of the series, though – instead of bland horror, we’re offered an unsettling tone with visual language that, at times, could be compared to Hitchcock’s way of slowly putting all the pieces of the puzzle in front of them. characters and spectators.
Oh yeah, and it’s bloody, like really bloody – giant bugs, “sweet” nurses, circus-level mutilations, and so much more. Entertaining for some, too much for others, a bit too long (almost two hours) because of a few streaks too, but nonetheless, a convincing entry into the silent Hill universe.
