* Fanservice: The opening scene has a good looking blonde running around in skimpy shorts and thin tank-top with no bra on an apparently chilly night.

* RuleOfSymbolism: Quite a bit of it, since this is a SilentHill movie. Most obvious is the fact that Rose's dress slowly changes from a soft blue to a deep, blood red as the movie progresses. The differing worlds and most of the characters also carry metaphorical comparisons to Christian beliefs, and Dahlia represents Cassandra from Greek mythology.

* TheBadGuyWins: It's debatable whether [[spoiler: Alessa is really ''the'' "bad guy" considering that the people she's fighting are the film's BiggerBad, but she's definitely not morally innocuous given her willingness to harm the innocent, and her actions lead directly to the DownerEnding mentioned below]].
* BiggerBad: [[spoiler: Alessa is behind all of the horrible things that go bump in the night in Silent Hill, but she's only created her nightmare world to punish the cultists who attempted to kill her]].

* DealWithTheDevil: The hospital sequence with Alessa and Dark Alessa likely symbolically represents this, although Dark Alessa is not actually the devil.
** [[spoiler: To save her daughter, Rose lets Dark Alessa hitch a ride inside her body into the church, knowing she'll slaughter the cultists.]]
*** [[spoiler: This sequence is actually far more likely to represent the Virgin Mary being impregnated by the Holy Ghost, given the several connections between Rose and the Virgin Mary made throughout the film, including an image engraved on her necklace.]]
* DistaffCounterpart: Rose to Harry; the director changed the main character's gender because he felt like the main character of the video game was very feminine already because he cared about his daughter enough to look for her.
** He also felt Silent Hill was a matriarchal world, and wanted to hold true to that theme.
