First Trailer for Silent Hill: Revelation 3D Creeps Its Way Online

The first movie adaptation of the video game Silent Hill was released in 2006, which puts six years between it and its first theatrical sequel, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, which reaches theaters just before halloween. In the interim, the Konami video game franchise on which the movies are based has continued with new installments (Silent Hill: Downpour was released on PS3 and XBOX 360 platforms in March), but, after revealing a preview clip at the San Diego Comic-Con earlier this month, the first trailer for Revelation has arrived online via Yahoo!.
Directed by Michael J. Bassett (Solomon Kane), Revelation is based on Konami's 2003 video game sequel Silent Hill 3, and will see Sean Bean return as Silent Hill's Christopher Da Silva. He has been on the run with his daughter Heather Mason (Adelaide Clemens) in the years between the two movies, until the mysterious, creepy and fog-filled town of Silent Hill beckons Heather to return. Like the games, the original movie was an exercise in atmosphere, while the sequel looks more like an examination of the creepy and weird. Fans of the game, though, should recognize how faithful Bassett was to it.
Written and directed by Bassett, Revelation brings back Silent Hill actors Radha Mitchell and Deborah Kara Unger and introduces Carrie-Anne Moss as antagonist Claudia Wolf, the priestess of a cult that is centered around Silent Hill, and Malcolm McDowell as Leonard Wolf, Claudia's abusive father. Kit Harington (HBO's Game of Thrones) co-stars as Heather's friend Vincent, though fans of the game know that Vincent has a secret tie to Silent Hill that is unrevealed in the trailer.
