    Ok, saw the movie, liked it. Has a lot of very well done, extremely creepy imagery (note: bathroom janitor and dude with the knife for those who have seen the movie). Liked the plot and all that but one thing left me confused; the ending.


    I have never played the game so I don't know how true to source the movie was. I only saw the movie for the movie itself and frankly the ending makes no sense. For those who have seen the movie I have a few questions below...in white color font.

    Are they both dead or what? How are they still stuck in a foggy world, a parallel dimension to the real world? Does the demon place itself inside the little girl when she opens her eye at the end and sees the demon looking at her?

    I'm all confused about the timeline - was the coal fire supposed to have been started by the same fire that burned the girl? If so, then why did it appear that she was in the hospital for a long time before she made her deal with the demon?

    Yes, that too. Didn't make much sense, especially when Gucci (the cop) says they never had enough time to evacuate the town.

    Play the games, they have 120% more oddness. Like pyramid head, although I heard that was in the movie also?

    I think we're supposed to wait, and find out the answers in silent hill 2 which they will be undoubtably making. That's what I assumed.
    I'm pretty sure the demon is in the little girl though.

    *SPOILERS IN POST*

    I played the game a long time ago on the PS2. The game basically takes place in the haunted town, and you play the role of an investigator. The storyline in the movie has nothing to do with the game, so don't worry about it.

    I saw it last weekend, and the mother, daughter and cop all died at the beginning of the movie, so they were dead the entire time. Since the daughter has that connection to the haunted town which is revealed at the end of the movie, this brings them into a typw of "underworld" where the hate from the girl and the incident that happened many years ago still lingers. Basically, they are dead from the start. The father and investigator can not find them because they are dead.

    I gathered that if you die in that world, then you go to the "hate" world created by the girl who got raped and later burned.

    Yes, it's worth watching. Personally, I wouldn't go and see it again, but It was definately worth watching the once. It's an interesting film, and nicely made.

    If they were dead, why didn't the cops find their bodies on the road? Remember how they spent like half the movie searching the real Silent Hill for the "missing" cop and the mother/daughter? The deputy in the movie very clearly says that they found the cop's motorcycle but that she was missing.

    Whoa. I totally forgot about that. That's a good question. What purpose did that guy with the wierd hood have in the movie anyway?

    And same question as the person above. How did the little girl get into the hospital if the place burned down????

    Yeah! Pyramid head. I never really understood his purpose in the movie.

    He originally appears in Silent Hill 2 (videogame) so technically he was never suppose to be in the original movie, but damn it he was so damn cool.
