Silent Hill: Revelation 3D (2012)

Director: Michael J. Bassett

Starring: Adelaide Clemens, Kit Harington, Carrie-Anne Moss, Sean Bean, Radha Mitchell, Malcolm McDowell, Martin Donovan, Deborah Kara Unger

More info: IMDb

Tagline: This Halloween prepare for a 3D ride through Hell.

Plot:  When her father disappears, Heather Mason is drawn into a strange and terrifying alternate reality that holds answers to the horrific nightmares that have plagued her since childhood.

My rating: 3/10

Will I watch it again? No.

Malcolm McDowell is admittedly a working actor.  He'll do anything as long as he gets his price.  I get it.  I can't fault him for it but for fuck's sake, at least look like you're trying.  Maybe I expect too much.  Beats me.  This flick has got way too many jump scares.  The 3D had only a couple of moments where it was effective and one of them had a chick walking down a hallway and that was it.  I was bored less than a half hour in and the rest of it was me trying to get through it without laughing.  I say laughing because of the excessive jump scares and I dropped ten bucks for the ticket and then another 12 on corn and coke.  I felt like a chump.  They can't all be good but, like how I feel about Malcolm McDowell's performance in this thing, they should have at least tried to make a good movie.
