With all this in mind, I rented the movie, and was surprised to find that I had a good time watching it. I wouldn't be surprised if people who haven't even played the game would enjoy the movie, and that's relatively high praise.
So, go ahead. If you think you might like it, go ahead and see Silent Hill. It's not high art, but I wasn't expecting it to be. I was in a mindset to find the zombie nurses disturbingly hot. I think that's a good place to be to enjoy the movie.
Oh, you didn't think I was talking about BloodRayne, did you? Yeah, I saw that. I'm not proud. It wasn't good. But I have seen worse. I can see where Uwe Boll wanted to go with the movie, and I think he couldn't quite pull it off. The delivery (and fight choreography) was flat, but the special effects were good. There. I said something positive.
