As the miners are trying to break down the washroom door, the camera pans over the door frame from Rose's side to the miners' side. Just as it settles into its final position, you can see the sliding wall section they used to allow the camera to pan, sliding back into position on the left of the door frame. See more »

The first segment of the ending credits plays out much like the ending credits of the games. See more »
In Canada, there is rumored to exist an extended cut of the film which runs approx. 132 minutes. It is also said to be the full uncut version of the film itself, which to this day, has never been released outside Canada. This version, being the full version of the movie that was filmed contains longer, sometimes more explicit scenes, more disturbing features (as well as extended scenes that explain everything unlike in the American Theatrical Cut) that was possibly all cut to prevent an NC-17 rating in the USA.

Dang, why aren't they making movies based on video games that I'm actually familiar with? Anyway, this really is one of the better video game movies, because it honestly does have really good atmosphere. I am at least familiar with some of the characters from the "Silent Hill" games, especially Pyramid Head. Oh come on, everyone's heard of Pyramid Head! So this happens to be the longest movie ever made based on a video game...until "Ace Attorney" came along. This film really was genuinely creepy at many times. Now, I think you did have to be a fan of the games to really enjoy it.
I would recommend it to people who are. For people who aren't, it's just alright. I admit that the CGI is actually pretty bad at many times in this movie. Well, there are other shots that are just fine. I do kind of like the characters in this movie even if they're not that great. It actually gets confusing in the middle of the film. It's when all of these other people show up and the tone of the movie starts to change. Again, probably something from the games. It's hard to find a video game movie that would appear to fans outside the series. Still, a very nice try. **1/2
