Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”
Advent Children is made to excite and is likely only to excite video game fans. Silent Hill, on the other hand, is made to scare the bejeezus out of you, and is likely to have that effect on anyone. This year's valedictorian of the what-the-fuck-is-going-on school of horror moviemaking, the movie strands its heroine in a nightmare beyond reason or redemption, bringing her (and us) visions of things that cannot be. It's H.P. Lovecraft for the Playstation generation, and it's a gorgeously freakish vision to behold.
