Silent Hill fans are gluttons for punishment. The 13-year-old video-game series hasn't seen a decent interactive entry since 2004, so imagine the frustration when Christophe Gans's faithful '06 film adaptation of the original PlayStation title came so close to perfection, only to collapse under the weight of good intentions. Lacking the affinity he brought to his Solomon Kane film adaptation, writer/director Michael J. Basset picks up some 10 years after Rose Da Silva (Radha Mitchell) was trapped inside an alternate reality, whereupon we learn that her daughter was able to escape. Sharon, now known as Heather (Adelaide Clemens takes over for Jodelle Ferland), is on the run with her father (the returning Sean Bean). It's the eve of her 18th birthday, and the two are a step ahead of the cultists who threaten to pull her back into their nightmare realm. In other words, it's more of the same, on a cut-rate budget, without Gans's atmospheric reverie.
