Silent Hill

Christopher, Rose and Sharon from the First Film.

I caught Silent Hill Revelation on demand recently, a little late and unfortunately not in 3D; but having been a big fan of the original Silent Hill and all it’s hellish glory, as well as the intensely creepy video game series, I immediately rented it when it popped up. Silent Hill Revelation takes places some years after the original; Sharon (Adelaide Clemens) and her father Christoper (Sean Bean) have been living under assumed identities after the events of the first film. Rose (Radha Mitchell) discovers a doorway linking the world of Silent Hill and the real world; using it, she sends Sharon back, trapping herself in Silent Hill in the process. We learn all of this in a very short flashback, featuring a young Sharon and a grieving Christopher. Christopher, now going by the name of Harry, promises Rose that he will protect their daughter from the evil forces of Silent Hill that are seeking her. Sharon, now 18, is plagued by constant visions and waking nightmares of a dilapidated town and it`s demonic inhabitants. We find out that she has no recollection of the past events or her role in the first film. Silent Hill is calling her back. Read review…

Hell

Hell. 2011.

Hell is a 2011 German-Swiss post-apocalyptic film directed by Tim Fehlbaum.
Release date: June 28, 2011 (initial release)
Director: Tim Fehlbaum
DVD release date: June 13, 2012
Running time: 89 minutes
Cast: Hannah Herzsprung, Angela Winkler, Stipe Erceg, Lilo Baur, Lars Eidinger, More
Screenplay: Tim Fehlbaum, Thomas Wobke, Oliver Kahl

It tells the story of a group of survivors in a dystopian Germany of the year 2016, when solar flares have destroyed the earth’s atmosphere and temperatures have risen by 10° C. The survivors are on their way into the mountains where they expect to find water and vegetation. One of my favourite sub-genre’s of horror is Post Aplocalyptic, so I rented Hell immediately upon reading the description. The German subs didn’t bother me at all (I watch tons of foreign horror). The entire film was shot with glaring sunlight, blinding in most scenes, which I found very effective as Hell takes place in a near future where the sun played a key role in earths demise. The survivors scavenge endlessly for water, fuel and food avoiding direct sunlight when and where possible; this painted a pretty bleak picture of a future where climate change has pretty much f%^ked things up bad! Sprinkle in some cannibalism, sex slavery and killing and Hell makes for a great (if not depressing and bleak) post apocalpytic joy ride. Hell @ IMDB
