*******The movie definitely suggests Sharon is mentally ill. Chris even mentions putting her in a mental hospital. Rose also suspected Sharon actually came from Silent Hill, since she was found at an orphanage in the same county and all.



* They had tried to control her sleepwalking. Think about it, Alessa was making Sharon sleepwalk, and she has powers out the wazoo, so motion sensors and locks weren't going to stop her. It's implied every possible avenue of stopping the sleepwalking had already been taken, to no avail.



* Rose was desperate to save Sharon, even if it meant she herself would end up in jail. Had Cybil been able to stop her, she would have had to go back home, where Chris would make damned sure Sharon was shipped off to the local institution ASAP.



* Dark Alessa was created the same night as Alessa's burning, and Sharon is created 21 years later.

\n* Gucci was far enough away that he wouldn't have smelled her perfume, and no sane person is going to assume a ghost just ran by them, so of course he didn't believe Chris.

*** Someone's been watching too much Twin Perfect. First of all, don't take the words of those dipshits, anything that is published by Konami is automatically canon unless they themselves declare otherwise.

[[folder:When Cybil gets Rose to pull over...]]
* "Oh look, a police officer's pulled me over. She already thinks I might have kidnapped the little girl I have in my car and is concerned I'm a bit of a weirdo. I know! I'll drive off at full speed away from her into the darkness!" Seriously, Rose? I know she was worried about being arrested, but good god. Cybil was already suspicious of her - didn't it ever occur to her that driving away like that would just make her look even more suspicious?


Added DiffLines:

[[folder:Dark Alessa, and Sharon]]
* When did Dark Alessa arrive? She explains to Rose that Sharon is what's left of Alessa's goodness, which is fine, and she's seen leaving baby Sharon on the doorstep of the orphanage, which is also fine. But how much time passed between Alessa being burned (and subsequently arriving at the hospital), Dark Alessa showing up, and Sharon being dropped off at the orphanage? It's been thirty years since the disaster, and no indication of time is provided.

[[folder:Regarding Thomas Gucci and Christopher when they're searching the town.]]
* At one point, Rose runs straight past Chris, who can't see her because she's in another reality, but he does smell her perfume. The whole purpose of the exercise is to try and find Rose and Sharon, so why does Gucci then insist that Chris ''didn't'' smell her, and tell him she was never there? Seems a tad counterproductive.

[[folder:So there's a group of cultists who are basically trapped inside the church they 'live' in. They can't go outside because it's too dangerous, which is fair enough in and of itself.]]

* Where the everloving fuck were they getting food from? When Cybil and Rose meet Anna in the hotel, she explains that her mother needs more food, so they do eat. Later on, Christabella tells Eleanor that Anna disobeyed their rules and 'went outside into the devil's playground'. And besides, even if they do leave the church occasionally (which they are admittedly seen doing, albeit in those big suits), it's been a full thirty years since the disaster struck the town. Where's the food coming from? It's pretty obvious that you wouldn't be able to grow crops or raise animals in Silent Hill, and the town's water supply must have dried up long ago. All that would be left would be canned food, and after thirty years, even most canned food would probably be a little on the dangerous side. Or did the cult simply stockpile huge quantities of Spam prior to the disaster?

* Sharon's sleepwalking was definitely dangerous, but if that was the only problem and if none of her sleepwalking episodes were violent or self-injurious, why were they even ''considering'' permanent institutionalization? Problematic sleepwalkers are usually cared for by making sure that they're in a safe place where they can't easily go anywhere or somehow harm themselves while they're asleep. A room without a window and with infrared motion detectors set up to trigger an alarm on the door would have solved a lot of problems.
