Silent Hill

(Canada/France, 2006, 124 minutes)

A distraught mother takes her sleepwalking daughter to Silent Hill, the ghost town whose name she whispers in her nightmares, only to find the city is itself a living nightmare to which the child is mysteriously connected. Intriguing supernatural mystery based on a video game, long on style and truly disquieting mood, but short on substance, although more thoughtful and articulate than most genre entries.
