[4.50/10] Silent Hill: Revelation (2012)

QuickRating: While the '06 original movie was like watching your worst nightmare, and had a strong creep factor, the CGI-laden "Silent Hill: Revelation" relies on its mostly unimpressive special effects and dark spaces to evoke sense of fear in the viewer, which doesn't really work. The truly sinister atmosphere is all gone, the creatures aren't that scary, the thrills are cheap, and Adelaide Clemens' trying-too-hard performance doesn't help either.

The first one wasn't great, but the atmosphere made it. Heard this one was a letdown.

Alex, I thought the first one was very good actually. It gave me the creeps for sure, and I love the whole atmosphere of it.

This one is a letdown indeed.
