Silent Hill Revelation 3D opens today. It’s the second stab at adapting Konami’s survival horror franchise for the big screen.

Producer Samuel Hadida, who produced the original film adaptation, tells of the background to the franchise “The Japanese creators of the Silent Hill games have drawn deeply from film masters of the horror genre in order to achieve the games’ great visual and emotional wealth. This quality has undoubtedly contributed to their huge success as one of the strongest performing game franchises ever.”

Commenting on the first film he says “Christophe Gans’ adaptation in our first film was an extraordinary homage to the games and the genre. This time I wanted this new experience to become a bridge between the fear felt when playing the game and the tension experienced at the edge of one’s seat in a theater.”

For years, Heather Mason and her father Harry have been on the run, one step ahead of dangerous forces she does not understand. Now, on the eve of her 18th birthday, plagued by terrifying nightmares and her father’s disappearance, Heather discovers she is not who she thinks she is. The revelation leads her deep into a demonic world that threatens to trap her in Silent Hil forever.

Silent Hill: Revelation 3D is based on Konami’s acclaimed survival horror video game franchise, but the film takes us beyond a mere adaptation with a storyline ideal for the big screen. Although it is a sequel to the first film (Silent Hill, directed by Christophe Gans in 2006), this new installment stands on its own for new audiences. It will not only provoke shivers but will undoubtedly strike a deep personal chord with many viewers, including those familiar with the Silent Hill world and those just discovering it.

Samuel Hadida produced the film as well as the first Silent Hill film. He has also produced all the Resident Evil films. He notes, “Silent Hil is completely different from any other video games. It is a beautiful piece of art which plays like no other with our feelings and perception. Each gamer experiences something unique: it is about fate, secrets, and our own evil inside. We believe that with Silent Hill: Revelation 3D we are really bringing this same experience to film audiences.”

Silent Hill: Revelation 3D is written and directed by Michael J Bassett (Solomon Kane, Deathwatch). Alongside original cast members Sean Bean (Lord Of The Rings, Game Of Thrones) and Deborah Kara Unger (The Game, 88 Minutes, The Samaritan) with a special appearance by Radha Mitchell (Man On Fire, The Crazies), the film stars rising talents Adelaide Clemens (X-Men Origins: Wolverine and upcoming The Great Gatsby and No One Lives) and Kit Harington (Game Of Thrones), plus renowned actors like Carrie-Anne Moss (Matrix, Disturbia) and Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange, The Artist).
