Silent Hill

Sharon (Jodelle Ferland) is a little girl who sleepwalks; lately they've been getting worse. She keeps mentioning the same thing in her trances: Silent Hill. Over the protests of her husband (Sean Bean), Rose (Radha Mitchell) flees with her child to Silent Hill. She ends up driving through a "portal in reality", which takes her to the eerie and deserted town of Silent Hill. Sharon disappears in Silent Hill, and Rose follows what she thinks is her daughter's silhouette all over town. It's soon clear the town is not like any place she's ever been. It's inhabited by a variety of creatures and a living darkness that descends and literally transforms everything it touches. The human inhabitants - the ones who are left - are trapped and fighting a losing battle against the Darkness. Joined by a cop named Cybil (Laurie Holden), who was pulled in with her, Rose searches for her little girl while learning the history of Silent Hill, and that Sharon is just a pawn in a larger game.

Continuity mistake: When Rose retrieves her phone from her Jeep, between shots the strap that the phone is attached to suddenly appears around her neck with no motion of her doing so.

More quotes from Silent Hill

Trivia: Director Christophe Gans wanted to use the original soundtrack recordings of Akira Yamaoka's scores from the various "Silent Hill" video games in the film. However, due to a legality issue necessitating the hiring of a Canadian composer for the film, Jeff Danna was selected to serve as the lead credited composer. However, it was later confirmed that he actually composed very little original music for the film, and instead mainly focused on created re-mixes and new recordings of the themes from the video-games, so that he and director Gans could preserve Akira Yamaoka's music and style as much as possible.

Question: Why exactly does the radio in the movie (and the game) react with static when a monster approaches? I've never been able to figure this out.

Answer: It's either simply the same phenomenon explored in the film "White Noise," or it could be Dark Alessa warning them. She doesn't want the mother to be killed; but she does need to refine the mother's will, for the final conrontation with Christabella, with tests of emotional and physical endurance.
