Here’s the trailer for the latest installment in the “Silent Hill” movie franchise. I wasn’t a huge fan of the original movie that came out in 2006, but that doesn’t mean I won’t check this one out. Most of the trailer looks fairly decent, although the CGI mannequin creature-thing looks terrible to me. I understand that these are horror movies based on video games, but that doesn’t mean that you have to make them look like video games. The CGI in some of these is just way too over the top and it takes me completely out of the flick… not to mention it’s in 3D and 3D is terrible no matter how you do it.
Will anyone go see this one in the theater? I’d much rather have a lower budget horror movie like “Silent House” or “Paranormal Activity” than this. And that’s not to say that a horror movie with a bunch of CGI can’t be good, as I really enjoyed “Cabin in the Woods”, but sometimes it’s just too much.
