welcome to my new World of creeps
this time im going to featured another terrifying film that was an adaptation from a hit Playstation game called

The town of Silent Hill is a resort area that exists in at least three parallel layers or dimensions: a normal, populated town; a silent, seemingly abandoned town veiled by supernaturally thick fog; and a dark and decaying town (called the "Otherworld") filled with disturbing imagery. Only the latter two layers are explored by the games' protagonists, where demonic and disfigured creatures roam the streets and buildings (appearing in greater numbers in the Otherworld). Occasionally, characters will transition between dimensions, and in some cases the dimensions may collapse into each other, creating an incoherent space called "Nowhere."

The different appearances of both the town and its inhabitants are manifested from characters' personal fears, though not necessarily those of the protagonists. These manifestations may be shared between characters, or otherwise appear exclusively to only one of them. It is implied that Silent Hill always held a supernatural presence (Mary Shepherd-Sunderland's assertion in Silent Hill 2 was that it "used to be a sacred place."), but the town's violent and deadly history had perverted these energies into something darker.[2]

Commentary published by Konami has stated that the power of Silent Hill has "intensified greatly" since the events of the first game. While the first two games featured protagonists who were drawn into Silent Hill, in the third and fourth games, the Otherworld has reached out to people in nearby towns.

The geography of Silent Hill is situated around the edge of Toluca Lake, with the older sections of town located to the north and along the banks of the adjacent river. Due in part to heavy commercial development, the town is fairly self-sufficient; it has an elementary school, a shopping mall, a church, two separate hospitals (Alchemilla Hospital in Paleville and Brookhaven Hospital in South Vale), a sanitarium, and other stores and attractions. "Old Silent Hill" and "Paleville" hold large residential areas with both apartments and homes, as well as several motels and the grand Lakeview Hotel. The beachfront area of Paleville also has a lighthouse and hosts the Lakeside Amusement Park.

In 2003 a motion picture based on Silent Hill was officially announced, with French director Christophe Gans (Brotherhood of the Wolf) attached. The film was released in April 2006.

While incorporating elements from the first four games, as well as original material, the film adaptation generally follows the plot of the first game in the series. However, there were significant changes such as a role reversal for the prime antagonist, and a religious cult resembling Christian fundamentalists rather than devil worshippers.

Harry Mason was replaced with Rose Da Silva (played by Radha Mitchell), a married mother. Rose's adoptive daughter Sharon (Jodelle Ferland) wanders and cries out "Silent Hill" in her sleep. Against the wishes of her husband Chris Da Silva (Sean Bean), Rose takes Sharon to find the elusive town of Silent Hill, in hope of finding the source of Sharon's nightmares. On the way Rose encounters a police officer, Cybil Bennett (Laurie Holden), who is suspicious of the distraught mother and her actions. Cybil follows Rose into Silent Hill where they are caught in a living nightmare, and encounter a religious cult connected to Sharon's past.

The film featured music from series composer Akira Yamaoka. The musical score featured several selections of original game music, such as the opening from the first game "Silent Hill", "Promise - Reprise" from Silent Hill 2, and "Theme Of Laura" and "Laura Plays the Piano", also from the second game.

The film was released through Tristar in the United States, and Pathé in Europe. Although panned by most professional critics, general audiences reacted more favorably, and the film was considered a financial success, opening at #1 in the US with $20.1 million dollars on its way to a total of $47 million domestically. A sequel has been commissioned with the IMDB predicting a 2010 release, but presently little is known about
