If you’re not familiar with the Silent Hill franchise, whether we’re talking the video games or the 2006 film that was inspired by them, their basic conceit is that the sleepy town of Silent Hill is connected to a hellish and freaky alternate dimension called Otherworld. This isn’t the greatest situation for the town’s inhabitants, because it means that one minute they can be walking down the street minding their own business, and the next hellfire and brimstone could be raining down on them them and they might have to do battle with any number of freaky and dangerous creatures.

Six years after the original Silent Hill comes a sequel, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D. This time around, Sean Bean is back, and when he mysteriously goes missing it’s up to his now-teenaged daughter (Adelaide Clemens) to navigate the town’s nightmares and release him from the clutches of all the evil whatsits. And if that doesn’t sound horrific enough for you, this poor girl also has to deal with the stresses of trying to acclimate herself to a new high school while everything around her turns to ash and spider monsters are attacking from all angles. New high schools are the worst.

What do you think? Is the visual style of the original Silent Hill’s director, Christophe Gans, going to be too terribly missed here? More than likely the teenagers packing the theaters to see an October horror release are going to be happy, but does it look like the new guy in charge, Michael J. Bassett, has what it takes to keep hardcore gamers and horror enthusiasts happy?

Silent Hill: Revelation is set to hit theaters on October 26, just in time for Halloween…and in 3D!
