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:
DVD
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.

Silent Hill: Christopher’s Story - Spence

This review is for the bonus feature, following Christopher.

Filesize = 413 MB, Video = 720 X 480p mkv, Audio = 192 kbps AC3, 2-Channel stereo. No Subs.

This focuses on Christopher’s search, or rather his futile search.
The narrative is choppy, the dialogue incomprehensible at times.
Overall, this is frustrating, especially, I imagine, for newcomers unfamiliar with the series. Then this edit will make little sense.
Unless – you regard this as a dream.
Which is what I did midway. Returned to the beginning, rewatched.
That method totally worked for me. Sean Bean’s character is either hallucinating, or is delusional, or psychotic.
True, for other viewers, this edit makes a cheat sheet for a favorite RPC … oops, I mean character.
Good example of a fledgling editor, this work is still available and worth studying by aspiring editors.
Generous of Spence to make his early efforts available. His later efforts are of higher quality, but everyone has to start somewhere.
