Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Silent Hill is visually impressive, but as with many video game adaptations, it's plagued by inane dialogue, a muddled plot, and an overlong runtime.

Grim horror film about missing girl. Not for kids.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this film is too violent for children. The storyline takes the form of a nightmare, so connections between scenes and events are sometimes hard to follow. The town is ostensibly located over an ongoing coalmine fire, and the general mythos has to do with a cult that accuses and burns witches in order to maintain the group's "purity." Characters burn, stab, shoot, and throw rocks at each other; the film includes a couple of vehicle crashes, frequent scenes where the mother and/or her daughter scream in terror. Men in miners' gear appear to threaten Rose, mainly because they look scary in goggles and overalls. Various monsters are misshapen and zombie-like human-types, able to shape-shift in bad-dreamy fashion. The monsters attack with swords, the cop shoots until she's out of ammo and then submits to a dire beating. Characters are burned to death, with skin melting, bubbling, and charring.
