[[caption-width-right:323:I wouldn't look behind you right now.]]

The sequel to ''Film/SilentHill'', released in 2012 in 3D. Written and directed by Michael J. Bassett (''Film/SolomonKane''), it is influenced by the [[VideoGame/SilentHill3 third game in the series]].

Six years after the first movie, 18-year-old Sharon Da Silva, now calling herself "Heather Mason" (Adelaide Clemens) is forced to go to the infernal town of Silent Hill to find her father, Christopher / Harry Mason (SeanBean), after the Order of Valtiel kidnaps him. Upon arriving in Silent Hill, Heather is drawn into a strange and terrifying alternate reality that holds answers to the horrific nightmares that have plagued her since childhood.

The cast includes Adelaide Clemens (as Heather Mason), Martin Donovan (as Douglas Cartland), Kit Harington (as Vincent Cooper), [[Film/TheMatrix Carrie-Anne Moss]] (as Claudia Wolf), and Creator/MalcolmMcDowell (as Leonard Wolf). Also returning from the first film are [[spoiler:Radha Mitchell (as Rose Da Silva), and Deborah Unger (as Dahlia Gillespie)]], though their roles in ''Revelation'' are smaller than before.

!!'''This film features the following tropes:'''

* ThreeDMovie
* ABoyAndHisX: Alessa and Pyramid Head.
* ActionizedSequel
* AdaptationExpansion: In ''Silent Hill 3'' the mannequin room is a small storage space with a noteworthy jump scare. ''Revelation'' expands it into a vast labyrinth ruled by a mannequin boss.
* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: ''Revelation'' attempts to be more faithful to its [[VideoGame/SilentHill3 respective game]], but in doing so it also contradicts [[http://silenthill.wikia.com/wiki/Silent_Hill:_Revelation#Continuity_errors.2FRetcons virtually the entire first film]], which this is supposed to be a sequel to.
* AgeLift: This version of Vincent is the same age and attends the same school as Heather.
* AlternativeForeignThemeSong: The image song for the Japanese version is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a7uGCLXooKo "Claymore"]] by Gackt
* AmusementParkOfDoom: Lakeside Amusement Park.
* AndIMustScream: The fate of trespassers who end up in [[spoiler: the mannequin room.]]
* AnkleDrag: Poor [[spoiler: Suki]]
* {{BFS}}: Pyramid Head wields one.
* BattleAmongstTheFlames: The battle between The Missionary and Pyramid Head takes place inside a [[RingOfFire circle of flames]] that cuts them off from everybody else.
* BedlamHouse: Brookhaven Asylum.
* [[spoiler:BitterSweetEnding]]: [[spoiler: Heather saves her father and apparently defeated the order for good, and got to leave with Vincent...but out in the real world, she's still considered a murder suspect. Also, Harry stays in Silent Hill to search for Rose, trusting Vincent to keep Heather safe.]]
* BigDamnHeroes: Courtesy of [[spoiler:Pyramid Head]].
* BloodlessCarnage: the image in the poster actually happens in the film. It is followed by Pyramid Head [[AnArmAndALeg hacking all those limbs off their owners]]. No blood happens, despite arms raining into the shot.
** Averted in the very next scene (Nurses).
* BrickJoke: [[spoiler:In ''VideoGame/SilentHillDownpour'' Harry inexplicably appears near the end of the Clocktower level. At the end of the film he is shown walking to Silent Hill, The Town starting up again, and the prison transport carrying Murphy entering the town.]]
* BurgerFool: Happy Burger
* CallBack: [[http://collider.com/wp-content/uploads/silent-hill-revelation-3d-international-poster.jpg This poster]] to the [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/5/57/Silent_hill.jpg first film's poster.]]
* TheCameo: [[spoiler: Travis Grady, the protagonist of ''VideoGame/SilentHillOrigins'' picks up Heather and Vincent at the end of the film while driving past the prison convoy carrying Murphy Pendleton from VideoGame/SilentHillDownpour]].
** Radha Mitchell and Deborah Unger are esentially making cameos, appearing in one scene each. Rose's appearance feels particularily shoehorned.
* CatapultNightmare: Heather has plenty over Silent Hill.
* ChronicallyKilledActor: [[spoiler:Subverted. It appears SeanBean (Harry) is going to be killed at first, but in the end he survives to the end of the film.]]
* {{Chickification}}: Heather, as opposed to Heather in ''[=SH3=]''.
* CompositeCharacter: While Valtiel is named-dropped a couple times and appears in effigy, Pyramid Head mostly takes over his role from the games as the figure that follows and watches over Heather.
* ContinuitySnarl: The motives of the town's cult and [[spoiler:Dark Alessa]] are pretty much the exact opposites of their motives in the first film here, both during this film's plot and retroactively, to the extent that the reason for Sharon and Rose to go to Silent Hill in the first film - thus setting up the events of this sequel - is [[TheyJustDidntCare actually written out and never replaced.]]
* CooldownHug: Pretty much how Heather defeats [[spoiler: Dark Alessa.]]
* CoolVsAwesome: [[spoiler: Pyramid Head vs the Missionary]].
* CorruptChurch: The Order.
* DistressedDude[=s=]: Harry and Vincent Cooper.
* DeathByAdaptation: [[spoiler:Douglas Cartland is killed by Claudia whereas in the game she only wounds him and he survives to become a sort of ParentalSubstitute to Heather.]]
* DeathFromAbove: [[spoiler: Douglas]] gets yanked up through a grate by The Missionary
* DreamWithinADream: The film starts out with one of these. After a gruesome dream that ends with Heather being burned alive, she wakes screaming to be comforted by her father. Just when she's starting to relax, he's stabbed through the chest and she wakes again rattled.
* EvilMakesYouMonstrous: The Seal of Metatron shows the "truth" of things, which manifests as transforming people who are monstrous on the inside into outward forms that match. [[spoiler: Leonard]] undergoes a VoluntaryTransformation into a hulking creature after getting ahold of it, and touching it reveals [[spoiler: Claudia]] to be The Missionary.
* {{Expy}}: The tarantula monster is an embellished version of [[VideoGame/SilentHillHomecoming Scarlet]].
* {{Fingore}}: Happens to [[spoiler: Douglas]] courtesy of the Missionary.
* FreezeFrameBonus: In the scene with the nurses, in the background is an x-ray of the Missionary's head.
* GasMaskMooks: The Bretheren. The in-universe justification is that they won't breathe the air of the Darkness, which they believe will corrupt them. [[spoiler: When Heather yanks one's mask off, [[YourMindMakesItReal he immediately starts choking up black liquid]].]]
* GiantSpider: Not literally but it's [[http://images.wikia.com/silent/images/9/9d/SILENTHILL_MOCK_SPIDER_QUAD_LO_v1_2_copy.jpg made of mannequins.]]
* GuardianEntity: Pyramid Head is said to be Alessa's protector and executioner. [[spoiler: It's implied that Alessa directed him to save Heather in the Asylum, and after Heather and Alessa are reunited, Pyramid Head comes to protect her from Claudia]].
* HandsOffParenting: Vincent is remarkable able to just take off on a school night to drive Heather to Silent Hill [[spoiler: Subverted--it's because his mother is Claudia and sent him to do just that.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: Douglas Cartland gets one very early on, once he realizes he's not exactly working for the good guys.
** [[spoiler: Vincent]] may have set a world speed record for it, not that he was exactly evil to begin with.
* HeroicSacrifice: Attempted by [[spoiler: Vincent]] to lead the Order soldiers away from Heather. [[spoiler: He survives, but he seriously underestimated the number of soldiers and only led a few away.]]
* HumanoidAbomination: It would be easier to list the characters in this film that are honest to goodness real humans.
* IChooseToStay: [[spoiler: Harry stays in Silent Hill at the end to search for Rose, trusting Vincent to keep Heather safe.]]
* JumpScare: All the freaking time, including one courtesy of a pop tart.
* KeepingSecretsSucks: Heather is clearly quite lonely from constantly having to hide and lie about herself, which plays a role in why she is so quick to open up to Vincent; with her father missing, the next closest thing she has to a friend is a guy she's known for barely a day.
* KissingCousins: [[spoiler:Claudia is Christabella's sister. In the first film, Dahlia was Christabella's sister, which would logically make Claudia Dahlia's sister too. Vincent is Claudia's son, Alessa is Dahlia's daughter, and Heather is really Alessa, so Vincent and Heather are cousins as well as love interests. The writer of the film appears to have missed this, as the Dahlia-Christabella connection isn't mentioned]].
* LivingMemory: The "Memory of Alessa".
* MetaphoricallyTrue: Christopher told Sharon that she had been in an accident and that her mother had saved her but was now gone. [[ExactWords Which is true]], but the car accident was the least of what happened to them, and Rose actually [[spoiler: sent Sharon back to him at the cost of remaining trapped]].
* MonsterClown: Heather 'halluncinates' several [[Music/InsaneClownPosse juggalo-type]] children with disturbing clown make up in the mall.
* MythologyGag: There are numerous nods to the game series.
** Harry's notebook contains an illustration of a [[VideoGame/SilentHill1 Mumbler]].
** When Heather enters the asylum, several phones can be heard making noise, in reference to the anonymous phone calls she receives in-game.
** One of the false names Heather used was [[VideoGame/SilentHill2 Mary]].
** Heather wields a metal pipe against Douglas, one of the weapons she wields early in the game.
** The mannequin sequence is a nod to a scare in the game where Heather is scared by a decapitated mannequin head.
** The numerous appearances of Robbie the Rabbit.
** Alessa and Leonard both make references to how Silent Hill appears differently to each individual per game.
* NowOrNeverKiss: Vincent kisses Heather before running off to draw away the Order's soldiers, thinking he won't survive it. [[spoiler: He does.]]
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler: Claudia turns into the Missionary during the final fight.]]
** [[spoiler: Leonard]] undergoes a similar transformation when he absorbs the Seal.
* OohMeAccentsSlipping[=/=]NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: Both Sean Bean and Kit Harrington are ostensibly playing Americans. Your Mileage May Vary as to how convincing either of them are. Leonard Wolfe, on the other hand, apparently emigrated to Silent Hill from England.
* ThePowerOfLove: Implied to be what allows Sharon to [[spoiler: absorb Alessa rather than the other way around]]; the original script even gives her a line about love being stronger than hate.
* PromotedToLoveInterest: Vincent. [[spoiler: Which is {{Squick}} when you realize Heather and Vincent are cousins. (He's Claudia's son, Claudia is Christabella's sister and Christabella is Dahlia's sister, and Heather is Alessa, who is Dahlia's daughter.)]]
* RecursiveReality: Leonard's belief about the world(s) and Silent Hill.
* SequelHook: Christopher stays behind to look for Rose.
** It is Travis Grady who picks up Heather and Vincent.
** Also, a prison truck that may be carrying [[SilentHillDownpour Murphy Pendleton]] is seen driving towards Silent Hill at the end, and the ash begins falling once again... That's three blatant hooks, so Basset definitely had a sequel in mind, although thanks to the panning of this film it may not happen.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: [[spoiler:Vincent and Harry survive the film, also the Memory of Alessa is absorbed into Heather... so Alessa as well.]]
* TheStinger: [[spoiler: Pyramid Head heads through the sanctuary, dragging his sword behind him]].
* YoureInsane: An unexpected villain-to-hero example. [[spoiler: Claudia tells Vincent he's insane when he says Heather is not evil]].
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: [[spoiler:The "Heather is a murder suspect" subplot is completely dropped by the end of the first act, and never mentioned again. Even if it was brought up again, by the end of the film it's more of a moot point than anything.]]
* VillainousRescue: Pyramid Head.
* VoodooShark: For every question this movie supposedly answers (or tries to) it simply raises a dozen other questions.
