Silent Hill: Revelation

3

The videogame-adap sequel is a near total misfire

Even by videogame adap standards, this is ropey stuff.

About as scary as a hug from a loved one, this follow-up to the 2006 horror follows the usual interminable film-to-game structure of set-piece, exposition, set-piece, exposition - perfectly suited to Xbox, but disastrous on your Blu-ray.

Drowning in dense mythology, clumsy plotting (a missing-dad quest leads to the titular nightmare zone) and thin characters this is a near-total misfire.

Positives? Well, it looks good, while lead (and Michelle Williams lookalike) Adelaide Clemens is clearly going places.
