The first ever footage from Michael J. Bassett’s sequel, Silent Hill; Revelation 3D, was screened at Comic-Con this weekend, and even better Open Road Films have allowed the clip to be shared online. What does that mean? Well, it means we can all watch the clip and begin getting really excited about the highly anticipated film.
Open Road Films plan to release the film in US cinemas on 26th October, and it will follow here in the UK on 31st October. The clip is superb, and features a poor fella strapped to a hospital bed unable to get free. As we all know, the evil nurses move by sound, so everytime the guy attempts to get free, the sounds attract the well designed nurses, bringing him ever closer to danger. The filming style, the lack of music, the colouring and the design of the scene itself all point to a film on a par with Christophe Gans’ superb original, maybe even better? Check out the terrific clip at the bottom of this post.
Based on the groundbreaking video game franchise, SILENT HILL: REVELATION 3D is the sequel to the hit film SILENT HILL, which opened to number one at the U.S. box office and took in nearly $100 million at the worldwide box office. Featuring an unparalleled horror experience, Konami’s Silent Hill franchise has captivated fans for more than a decade and has spawned a hit comic book series, graphic novels, collectibleaction figures and numerous soundtracks from rock bands.
