If you missed writer-director Michael J. Bassett’s Silent Hill: Revelation when it hit theaters in the US this October, then you can remedy this problem by picking up the film on home video early next year.
The sequel to director Christophe Gans and writer Roger Avery’s 2006 horror flick brings back a number of actors who appeared in the original picture. In addition to star Radha Mitchell, the film features Deborah Kara Under and the always enjoyable Sean Bean.
Gans and Avery’s 2006 chiller was based on the popular Konami video game Silent Hill which debuted on the first Playstation console back in 1999. However, Avery incorporated a number of elements from Silent Hill and Silent Hill 2 into his script.
The synopsis for the sequel reads as follows:
“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.”
According to High Def Digest, Silent Hill: Revelation fans will be able to pick up the film in a number of different formats. Although the movie will be available on DVD, the Blu-ray editions seem to have more to offer fans of the franchise.
Those home theaters enthusiasts who are set up for the perfect 3D experience should strongly consider picking up the Silent Hill: Revelation 3D two-disc package since its compatible with 3D Blu-ray players and televisions. Those who want to stick with 2D should gravitate towards the Silent Hill: Revelation editions on Blu-ray or DVD sets.
