    Short-Media @ The Movies - Silent Hill

    I don't believe I've ever linked to a movie review here in HEXUS.news, but there's always time to start...
    Let's face some facts here. Movies spawned from games generally don't work. Doom was terrible, Bloodrayne was awful, and Resident Evil made gamers turn away in droves. Necks twinge and anxiety wells whenever Hollywood and movie studio execs get an idea in their heads to convert a much-loved game into a movie. So, Sony Pictures buys up the rights to a much-loved Konami (game production studio) game called 'Silent Hill' and many a gamer wonders what fate will befall such a classic series of games. Is it "Doom"-ed, so to speak? Or, can a movie be made from a game that stays true to the subject matter and instead deliver a great movie that can win over cynical gamers and movie goers alike?

    Sounds like it's worth a watch.

    I never really got into silent hill, but for some reason the movie does intrigue me.
