Heather/Sharon retrieves the second half of the Seal of Metatron from Leonard in the asylum, and Pyramid Head rescues her from the inmates. She then rescues Vincent from the asylum and the two make it to Lakeside Amusement Park, where Heather recombines with Dark Alessa. She reaches The Order's underground sanctuary and finds her father Harry/Christopher there, along with Claudia, the leader of the cult. Claudia reveals she's the sister of Christabella from the first movie and claims that The Order actually burned Alessa and lured Heather back to birth their God. Claudia asks for the Seal of Metatron to summon the God with, and Heather gives it to her because Leonard told her it revealed "the true nature of things." Claudia transforms when she touches the Seal and is revealed to be the monster that killed Douglas and kidnapped Vincent. She attacks Heather but Pyramid Head shows up and kills her, saving the day. Heather, Vincent, and Christopher leave the town (presumably after Pyramid Head kills the rest of The Order) and they are released back into the normal world, as Heather remarks she thinks things will be different in the town from now on. Christopher says no, more lost souls will come to make their own personal hells. He then decides to stay behind to search for his still-missing wife, re-entering the Fog World dimension and entrusting his daughter to Vincent. As they walk out of town, Heather and Vincent get picked up by a trucker named Travis Grady (from the game Silent Hill: Origins) who says it's been a long time since he'd been in town. As they drive off, a prison transport bus (from the game Silent Hill: Downpour) speeds into the town, entering the Fog World.
Plot hole: The motivation of the cult in this film - a dark entity trying to birth their demonic god - is completely different from the cult of the original film, which was portrayed as fanatical Christian witch-burners. No satisfactory explanation is given in the film to explain this and in fact the film explicitly implies they are the same cult on several occasions. The explanation that the cult of the original film is some sort of offshoot or different sect of the cult from this film cannot explain this as it is pure fan speculation and conjecture (thus non-canonical) and in fact raises several more plot-holes.
Trivia: After the film was released, director M.J. Bassett (then credited as "Michael J. Bassett") admitted she was extremely disappointed by how the film turned out, and even wrote a blog entry where she apologized to fans who were also disappointed by it. In a later interview, Bassett admitted to second-guessing many of the creative choices in the film, often altering her vision to try and make the movie more broad and appealing for the producers, instead of fighting to make a more personal film with a clear vision. Bassett called the film a "nightmare dance" that she just "couldn't do."
