Day 18 - Film that is your guilty pleasure
I just LOVE the game (the series as a whole) and the movie is a pretty good adaptation, of course it turned out to be a trashy film, but it’s great! =D
Silent Hill is a 2006 movie based on the Silent Hill series of survival horror video games created by Konami. The film, particularly its emotional, religious and aesthetic content as well as its creature design, includes elements from Silent Hill, Silent Hill 2 and 3. The film also includes some music, such as “Wounded Warsong”, from Silent Hill 4: The Room. A game in the series released after the film, Silent Hill Homecoming, incorporates some elements of the film.
The film follows a mother, Rose, who takes her troubled adopted daughter, Sharon, to Silent Hill, the town the girl cries out for while sleepwalking. After being unconscious in a car crash outside the town, Rose awakens and is shocked to find Sharon missing and the town engulfed in an alternate reality of fog and falling ash. While searching for Sharon, she faces reality shifts and monsters while uncovering her daughter’s connection to the town’s past.
Day 14 - Favorite documentary
I couldn’t think of a documentary, so I put on a documentary-type movie…
In The Blair Witch Project three film students travel to Maryland to make a student film about a local urban legend… The Blair Witch. The three went into the woods on a two day hike to find the Blair Witch, and never came back. One year later, the students film and video was found in the woods. The footage was compiled and made into a movie.
Day 6 - Favorite horror
I always loved that movie… I also think “psychologic” horror is much worse than bloody horror…
The Shining is a 1980 Stanley Kurbrick film where a family heads to an isolated hotel for the winter where an evil and spiritual presence influences the father into violence, while his psychic son sees horrific forebodings from the past and of the future.
Day 2 - Least favorite film
Just… trash… and not in the good way…
