Based on the fan-favorite video game franchise, 2006’s Silent Hill was panned by critics and never made a profit from domestic sales. However, reaching nearly $100 million in sales internationally and making Box Office Mojo’s Top 10 video game adaptations was apparently enough to elicit a sequel. Silent Hill: Revelation 3D creeped us out a couple of months ago with some carnival-themed set pieces.
Today we have some new images from the set, ones that take a closer look at some of our favorite characters and monsters. Sharp-eyed viewers among you might be able to spot Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix) looking creepier than I’ve ever seen her before. Hit the jump to check out the photos.
Here are the set photos (via the film’s Facebook page):
While Silent Hill introduced audiences to acid-spitting monsters, sexy undead nurses and the flesh-ripping Pyramid Head, fans of the franchise will see a few more familiar names and faces. Carrie-Anne Moss will play Claudia Wolf and you can tell from the pictures that her creepiness will rival return cast member Deborah Kara Unger’s (Dahlia). The photo with producer Don Carmody sitting on a throne introduces what appears to be the character Valtiel [don’t click if you don’t want a minor spoiler]. Though it’s just a statue, he could easily be the fan-favorite of this film, much like Pyramid Head was in the last one. While I normally avoid 3D movies because of their low quality and extra cost, I’ll be sure to see this one, even with the increased probability of crapping my pants.
Silent Hill: Revelation 3D will reunite former Silent Hill cast members Sean Bean, Deborah Kara Unger and Radha Mitchell resuming their previous roles. Newcomers to the series include Kit Harrington (Game of Thrones), Malcolm McDowell, Carrie-Anne Moss, Heather Marks and Adelaide Clemens. The sequel is scheduled for release some time in 2012, so until then, check back here for updates.
Here’s the synopsis for Silent Hill: Revelation 3D:
For years, Heather Mason (Clemens) and her father have been on the run, always one step ahead of dangerous forces that she doesn’t fully understand. Now on the eve of her 18th birthday, plagued by terrifying nightmares and the disappearance of her father, Heather discovers she’s not who she thinks she is. The revelation leads her deeper into a demonic world that threatens to trap her in Silent Hill forever.
