Movie Review

More horror mumbo jumbo, in 3-D

Like the video games in the “survival horror” Silent Hill franchise, “Silent Hill: Revelation 3D” continues the story of a forlorn mining town fused to coexisting universes full of occult practices. The first film adaptation, “Silent Hill,” came out in 2006; in the video game series, we’re up to part nine, released earlier this month.

Here in part two of movie-land, single dad Sean Bean (“Game of Thrones”) must protect his daughter Heather (Adelaide Clemens) after wife Rose (Radha Mitchell, seen in flashback), in part one, rescued her from Silent Hill and disappeared. All grown up, Heather is sullen and detached, partly because her father moves her around from school to school — and partly because wherever she goes, light bulbs flicker and tortured humanoids writhe before her.
