I can still recall the first time I saw Silent Hill in the theater. The tone of the movie had me smiling from start to finish. A killer soundtrack, amazing atmosphere and original monsters kept me coming back for repeat viewings over the years. News of a sequel sort of crept up on me, but my love of the original film kept me optimistic. Interviews at New York Comic Con and a director professing his love for the original and the video games made me even more excited. Then there was the screening... and the laughing... and the moaning... and my thought that I would really like to leave the theater had I not promised to write a review when the embargo date arrived... AND THAT DAY IS TODAY!!
