    I don't necessarily know if I'd recommend it to you just because, if I remember correctly, I think you and I have very different tastes. But, I would say that this is probably the best videogame-to-film adaptation I've seen. Granted, it is also one of the videogames with the best story. But, the visuals are very solid and really quite disturbing at times, even if they are taken from the game and the story is good, even if the characters can be a bit silly at times. If you liked "Brotherhood of the Wolf" which is also Christopher Gans, I'd say you might want to give Silent Hill a look.

    I would have given more love if it wasn't for the slightly superior original. The remake is not a bad film. I just don't think it's as good as the Japanese one.

    Very true- NONE of the remakes of asian horror were as good but the Ring was the only one that was fairly close.

    I'm surprised Deadgirl isn't on the list, come to think of it (I forgot about it too, when I voted)

    Only one film this decade gave birth to a new horror icon.

    Actually, that's not true. I heard as much about "The Creeper" when Jeepers Creepers came out as I hear about Jigsaw today. The tide has finally turned, and people now know the 'star' of those films is the selection of torture devices. Either way, a very pathetic excuse to think Saw a classic or a good film.

    Let's repeat that remark 15 years from now. You words will haunt both of us forever. Every generation of teenagers is like a cancer. Think about what I am saying long & hard (no sexual remarks please). :hum:
