Sarah and Adam return to Silent Hill to discuss MJ Bassett’s no-win scenario: making a film that simultaneously pleases fans of the Silent Hill games and the previous Silent Hill movie. Silent Hill: Revelation may not be the greatest film ever made, but its charms (including Malcolm McDowell in a mesh top) are discussed in this very special and not terribly Canadian Scare-itage.

The podcast where writer-director MJ Bassett is interviewed about her film/TV work (including Revelation) as well as her personal life, is over at The Movie Crypt. Definitely worth a listen.
There was a time when studios released direct-to-video cartoon “midquels” to films that have a newly-released sequel that jump ahead in time and fill the gap. Hence, the animated Chronicles of Riddick.
There was also an animated Van Helsing, but the Hugh Jackman Van Helsing never spawned a theatrical sequel.
