Getting to hell is more complicated than you'd think.
Whoever said that the road to hell is paved with good intentions apparently didn't remember the other steps involved, but the latest Reelz-exclusive trailer for Silent Hill: Revelation 3D fills in all five steps that are taken on the way to hell.
Of course, the old adage still rings true for the movie's plot, which sees Heather (Adelaide Clemens) travel to the foggy weirdness of Silent Hill in order to find her father (Sean Bean). Along the way she encounters giant blade-wielding guys with pyramid heads, mannequin spiders, faceless nurses, and pale young schoolgirls with black, soulless eyes. Sounds like hell to us! all the latest horror trailers

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.all the latest horror trailers

"Oh, yes, there will be (more) blood!"
It's difficult enough to scare audiences when a movie has an original plot and an unknown killer, but horror movie franchises somehow manage to keep moviegoers coming back for more of the same frights. The immortal killers in the Friday the 13th, Halloween and A Nightmare on Elm Street movies hold a place of prominence in movie history alongside Vulcans, Jedis and British secret agents because of their long-running franchises, while the George A. Romero-style zombies have become ubiquitous. All too often, horror sequels are cheap knock-offs of the original created solely to cash in; however, there are those rare sequels that manage to surpass their predecessors, often by expanding upon the original's mythology or by taking the franchise in another direction. Lock the doors, turn on all of the lights and help us rate the best horror movie sequels.

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. watch the trailer >> Posted 07.27.12 by Ryan
Open Road Films is clearly an intelligent and intuitive company, scheduling their panel after the one for Django Unchained and before Warner Bros.' panel for The Hobbit, Man of Steel and Pacific Rim. The line for Hall H that day was the longest of the entire convention, with many either lining up at dawn or sleeping overnight. Therefore, Open Road got a packed house for their panel presentation, which included a look at their upcoming sequel, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D.
The follow-up to 2006's Silent Hill, writer/director Michael J. Bassett based Revelation on Silent Hill 3, Konami's 2003 video game sequel. In an interview with Dread Central, Bassett revealed that audiences don't need to see original to understand the sequel. "People who are new to it will totally get it," said the director. "Even though there are some recognizable faces too. Sean Bean is back." MORE >> Posted 07.16.12 by Ryan
As has become standard, more cast has been announced while another new photo has been released for writer/director Michael J. Bassett's horror sequel, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D.
With the lead actors Adelaide Clemens (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and British actor Kit Harington (HBO's Game of Thrones) already set, Revelation announced that Silent Hill actors Radha Mitchell and Deborah Kara Unger had joined the cast last month. Fellow Silent Hill actor Sean Bean (Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring) had already been cast. The photo revealed at that time was of Mitchell inside an elevator with Clemens approaching, while the most recent photo depicts Clemens and Harington in the streets of Silent Hill.
The latest casting announcement has revealed the additions of Carrie-Anne Moss and Malcolm McDowell as antagonists Claudia and Leonard Wolf. In the Konami video game Silent Hill 3, Claudia Wolf is a priestess of a cult that plans to use Heather Mason (played by Clemens in the movie) to birth their god, and Leonard Wolf is Claudia's abusive father. more revelations about Revelation >> Posted 04.07.11 by Ryan

It's early days, and I'm keeping details of the plot secret for now, but it's going to be a sequel to the first film whilst trying to remain true to the plot of game 3, and will also work as a stand-alone movie for people who don't know the series.
Looks like Silent Hill 2 is on track to confusingly scare audiences soon. ShockTillYouDrop reports that director Michael J. Bassett was announced as the director at the recent American Film Market. Bassett, who recently directed Solomon Kane, will take over for French director Christophe Gans, who helmed the 2006 original but chose not to return for the sequel.
Titled Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, the script for the sequel has been in the works for a while, experiencing a small setback when screenwriter Roger Avary was incarcerated for gross vehicular manslaughter in October of 2009. In the recently released press release, it looks like Bassett will take over scripting duties. read the synopsis >> Posted 11.06.10 by Ryan
