Second Silent Hill movie dated for US release

Three-dimensional psychological unease set for Halloween

TODO alt text

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.
