The second Silent Hill
movie, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, has been acquired for US
distribution by Open Road Films. The company, who recently scored
with Taken-versus-wolves thriller The Grey, will release Revelation
3D in the US on October 26. That way, when you're watching the movie
and goodness-knows-what is flying directly at your face, you can just
blame the resultant nausea on pre-Halloween candy.

Revelation 3D, directed by
Solomon Kane's Michael J. Bassett, continues the story begun in
Christophe Gans' 2006 original. Seeings as pretty much the entire
continuing plot hinges on a (really obvious) twist revealed in that
movie's final minutes, we'll just mention that it had Sean Bean in it
and for a nice change he didn't betray anyone and/or die – meaning
the Game of Thrones star can return for a larger role in the sequel.
Also returning are indie stars Radha Mitchell and Deborah Kara Unger,
joined by professional terrifying wreck Malcolm McDowell and
professional person-who-was-in-The-Matrix Carrie Anne Moss.
The series' next interactive
installment, Silent Hill: Book of Memories' release date recently
slipped to next month, giving you some more mentally-fraught
goings-on to wade through before the movie's release. You can also

commentary when the movie's released in October – and in doing so
make all the friends.
