Another movie for this week! I am really loving this meme. I really enjoy doing movie reviews or sharing to you guys how different (and Kaye can attest to that) my taste is. For this week the theme is Suspense or Thriller movie.
The movie Silent Hill is about a mother (Rose) and her adopted child, Sharon. Sharon is notorious for her sleep walking and the constant mention of Silent Hill while sleeping. Finally, Rose decided to take Sharon on a trip to the mysterious place. She wants to make an end to what is it that’s missing in Sharon’s life.
Arriving at Silent Hill, Sharon run away and Rose was greeted with mysterious events. A siren, a burned like figures haunting her. Finally another human being came to the rescue, a police officer. Together they discover the truth behind the mysterious place. Together they uncovered the past of her adopted daughter. There is a dark, dark secret that surrounds it all.
Meanwhile, her husband came down looking for Rose and their kid. It was later revealed that Rose, Sharon and the police officer was in a different dimension. It was a scene where the husband was roaming in Silent Hill, in a different Silent Hill and they almost bumped to each other. The husband discovered the history of the place, of where Sharon came from and how dark the place was.
Later it was revealed that Sharon came from Alessa. A very young and innocent but powerful girl. A girl who experienced nothing but worse from the townsfolk. A child who found solace in a very dangerous creature. Sharon was part of Alessa, the innocent Alessa. Now, Rose must face the challenge of saving her innocent Sharon and helping Alessa to finish her business with the townsfolk.
Sorry guys if this took so long, this is really my favorite movie of all time. More than a suspense film it also capture the love of a mother to her child, may it be her own or not. The movie was really captivating, story aside, the effects was really great. This a horror film that I really really love. It was not scary and to top it all it does not make me cringe (unlike Hostel and the likes..ugh!)
