Pyramid Head Slashes in the 'Silent Hill: Revelation 3D' Motion Poster
It's Halloween season, but the timely sequel and video game adaptation Silent Hill: Revelation 3D just doesn't have our attention. From a strange psychological plot device to the seemingly sloppy adaptation of the video game series, it just feels like the sequel has been phoned it to reel in horror fans, and deliver a commercial for the theme park attraction. However, we like the idea of motion posters to mix up the normal print campaign that hits the web, and a new one has just surfaced featuring the return of Pyramid Head. he stumbles and slashes with a nice blood splatter at the end, but we're still not excited about the movie at all.
Here's the new poster for Michael Bassett's Silent Hill: Revelation 3D from Yahoo:
For years, Heather Mason (Adelaide Clemens) 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 terrifying 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 in Silent Hill forever. J. Michael Bassett (of Solomon Kane) wrote and is directing Silent Hill: Revelation 3D which also stars Sean Bean, Radha Mitchell, Carrie-Anne Moss and more. The film arrives near Halloween on October 26th.
Actually, from what we've seen so far this seems like a pretty faithful adaptation of Silent Hill 3.

Minus pyramid head who serves no purpose in this film, much like the first film. Then again I am a rabid Silent Hill 2 fanboy.

Accept for the fact that the pyramid headed character has no connection with Heather Mason whatsoever. It was never a manifestation of her inner fears or inner demons since it was part of James Sunderland's psyche from the silent hill 2 game, representing his guilt and need to be punished for killing his wife. The fact is they just put that monster in the movie for the sake of it. This movie will be enjoyed more by people who don't know the game than those that do since it's not faithful to it's source material.

I'm REALLY looking forward to this. I hope I can follow it though, I've never seen/played the games and missed a bit of the first films logic... like who is that pyramid head guy?

This movie is as faithful to the silent hill games as the resident evil movies are to the resident evil games. Monsters are thrown in just for the sake of it without any real connection to the protagonists story, background or personal fears. The silent hill games monsters were always personal to the individual characters, that was the brilliance of the games. A sexually abused person would be tormented by monsters that remind them of the traumatic experience etc. The monsters always had meanings and were metaphors for something deeper and personal to the protagonists of the story. Why does this movie have slutty nurses with revealing clothes when the protagonist is female? Because the director remembered seeing them some where in a silent hill game not taking into account that the women looked that way to the male protagonists who had sexual depravity or suppressed labido etc. Maybe i'm nitpicking but I just think that movie makers need to do more research when bringing franchises with large fan followings to the big screen. In doing so it shows they actually care.
