Brief Synopsis:
This edit shortens the film and focuses it on the character of Rose and the town of Silent Hill.
Intention:
This edit shortens the film and focuses it on the character of Rose and the town of Silent Hill. Any scenes not directly relating to her plotline is removed. The film is now more intense and atmospheric, since the other storyline that ruined the pacing. Silent Hill is now the atmospheric, creepy, horrifying film it should have been.
Release Information
NTSC DVD-5
Special Features
Christopher’s scenes are presented as their own shortfilm. These scenes work better as a bonus feature, a supplement to the main story. This short film has the original ending preserved as well.
Cuts and Additions:
Scenes removed that weren’t directly related to Rose’s storyline. All of Sean Bean’s side plot is gone.

Also the ending has changed, Rose now simply leaves the town, rather than the confusing ending the film originally had.

The intention was the correct one. However, the execution left quite a bit to be desired. Given that the Chris sequences prior to Rose entering Silent Hill stay, there’s still too much of him that adds nothing to the story, but that’s the smallest problem. The thing is, there are hard cuts everywhere, particularly in the audio, and nothing that couldn’t have been easily fixed. The removal of the parallel narrative from the school sequence results in a music bit repeatedly looped over the images, and it sounds exactly like that. However, I wouldn’t mind it that much if it weren’t because Chris enjoys a Fight-Club-dick style one-frame cameo in it. Careless. Also, the fade-out-fade-in separating the Sharon capture from the church sacrifice looks too much like a TV cut-to-commercials. There are fades elsewhere in the film, but in those the audio and video fade at different speeds and that helps them work. In the one I mentioned, both fade at the same time, and one half expects an ad to pop up.

A for effort, but I’m afraid this needed much more care in the execution. 3/10.
