Today's Hot Horror Trailer: Latest Silent Hill: Revelation 3D Trailer Tracks the Descent Into Hell
10.19.12 by Ryan
Welcome back to hell, er, Silent Hill.
For those that remember 2006's Silent Hill, it was one of the more effective video game adaptations, however, unlike the almost perennial Resident Evil sequels, it's taken six years for Silent Hill: Revelation 3D to become a reality. Sean Bean returns to the sequel as Silent Hill's Christopher Da Silva, only this time, it's his daughter Heather (Adelaide Clemens) doing the searching around the foggy, creepy town of Silent Hill and not the other way around (hey, that same role reversal worked for Taken 2).
Our latest look at the sequel comes from MTV, who has a new, minute-long trailer of Revelation, which does a good job of distilling the first trailer into 60 seconds of creepy weirdness.

If that got your attention, here's a new preview clip, which sets up the whole "the darkness is coming" scene from the trailer.
Fans of the Konami Silent Hill video game franchise will recognize elements from Silent Hill 3 in the movie, which, of course, is no accident. Director Michael J. Bassett (Solomon Kane) told Bloody-Disgusting at the New York Comic-Con last weekend that "generally speaking [Silent Hill] 2 is the best game, but for me 3 worked because it continued the story from the first film," including using the character of the giant blade-wielding Red Pyramid.
He appears in the movie and he has a reason to be there but I can’t give too much away, obviously. The notion is that the monsters in Silent Hill have some psychological resonance with the characters; one of the big things is that people compaling that Red Pyramid belongs in game number two. But he was in the first film, so I couldn’t just ignore this amazing character in the sequel. He’s our Pinhead, our posterboy. But he needed to make sense within the story. He represents Masculinity to me, and the film is about Heather’s search for her father, while the first was the parent searching for the daughter, so we’ve reversed roles. Pyramid is not what you would expect him to be. You think he’s a bad guy, but whether he really is or not, is something you’ll have to see in the film.
Written and directed by Bassett, the Revelation cast includes 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.
