Now on the eve of her 18th birthday, living under the alias of Heather Mason, plagued by horrific nightmares and the disappearance of her father, Sharon discovers he has been protecting her from a religious cult called the Order of Valtiel.

I'm a fan of the first movie, even though I never played one of the games. And I was disappointed by Silent Hill 3D, mainly due to the weak plot, gratuitous violence, and bad dialog. Finally there is a pink bunny that shows up seemingly every ten minutes throughout the movie, for no reason at all. Why? The script writer generally added horror elements that have no connection to the general plot, and those elements are really cliché to the extreme (an Indian cemetery? so lame).
The amounts of gore are much higher than the original movie, but the lack of a mystery and no connection to the plot whatsoever leaves a feeling of emptiness. The actors go through their lines in a very unconvincing way, and the ending, well, is underwhelming to say the least.
In the end, Silent Hill 3D is a mediocre horror movie with violence that would fit more in a Saw movie, and really undeserving of the "Siling Hill" moniker. The only two good points that I can see (pun intended) are 1. the 3D and the visual effect and 2. the scene with the clown, quite chilling and well done.
