Silent Hill: Revelation 3D is an horror film that opened be on October 26, 2012. It is written and directed by Michael J. Bassett. The movie is based around the mythos of Silent Hill.
Heather Mason (Adelaide Clemens) and her adoptive father Harry Mason (Sean Bean) have spent the past few years moving from town to town and assuming different identities. Heather believes that they are on the run from the police because Harry killed a man in self-defense and that her adoptive mother Rose (Radha Mitchell) died in a car crash. In fact, Harry has been protecting her from the Order, a cult of Silent Hill, a town haunted by shifting dimensions. Rose was able to free Heather (then Sharon) from one of the alternate dimensions using one half of a talisman called the Seal of Metatron, but Rose remained trapped in Silent Hill. Heather meets fellow student Vincent Cooper (Kit Harrington), but is haunted by hallucinations of Silent Hill. She is approached by private investigator Douglas Cartland (Martin Donovan) regarding her identity. Heather warns Harry, but he is abducted by the Order and taken to Silent Hill. Unaware of this, Heather goes to a mall to wait for Harry, but enters the mall's Otherworld. Douglas explains he was hired by the Order to find Heather, but decides to help her when he discovered who his clients were. A monster, the Missionary (Liise Keeling), kills Douglas, but returning to the real world, Heather flees, leaving her a suspect to Douglas' murder.
Vincent escorts her home, but they find a message instructing Heather to go to Silent Hill. Heather learns the truth by reading a letter from her father, and decides to go to Silent Hill to rescue him; she takes the other half of the Seal of Metatron which is stored in her house. Heather and Vincent travel to the town, but stop at a motel, where Vincent reveals that he is the son of the Order’s leader Claudia Wolf (Carrie-Anne Moss), and was sent by her to convince Heather to willingly come to Silent Hill. He reveals that Heather is a part of Alessa Gillespie (Erin Pitt), a girl who was burned 38 years ago by the Order, leading her to create the town's shifting dimensions. A shift to the Otherworld occurs, and Vincent is dragged away by the Missionary after telling Heather to find his grandfather Leonard (Malcolm McDowell), who possesses the Seal of Metatron's other half.
Heather ventures into one of the alternate dimensions to find Leonard. She encounters Alessa’s mother Dahlia (Deborah Kara Unger), who reveals that Claudia intends to complete a purpose intended for Alessa at her burning. Heather finds Leonard who after informing her that the Seal of Metatron will reveal "the true nature of things," he fuses Heather's half of the amulet with the one he possesses and becomes a monster. After knocking Heather out and taking her away, she awakens and retrieves the amulet from his body, which kills him. As she runs away, she encounters Pyramid Head (Roberto Campanella) and hides from him while noticing Vincent being dragged off by the Order after being deemed insane by Claudia for betraying them.
Heather saves Vincent and they go to Lakeside Amusement Park, where the Order's sanctuary is hidden. Dark Alessa (Erin Pitt and Adelaide Clemens), the manifestation of Alessa’s wrath, confronts Heather who embraces her counterpart, absorbing her and making Alessa complete once again. Heather confronts Claudia, who is holding Harry and Vincent hostage. Claudia explains that Alessa's destiny was to be the incubator for a deity worshiped by the Order; the deity will punish all sinners upon its birth and Heather's destiny will be complete. Realizing Leonard's words, Heather gives Claudia the Seal of Metatron, revealing her to be the Missionary. Heather summons Pyramid Head, who kills the Missionary, allowing Heather to rescue Vincent and Harry.
As the fog fades from the town, Harry decides to stay in Silent Hill to find and free Rose, leaving Heather in Vincent's care. As they managed to hitch a ride on a truck driven by Travis Grady (Peter Outerbridge) away from the place. At the opposite a couple of police cars followed by a prisoner transport is entering the area of Silent Hill which is consumed by the fog. In a post-credits scene, Pyramid Head is seen walking through an unknown area in Silent Hill.

Absence of Christophe Gans and Roger Avary Edit
In December 2006, Silent Hill writer/director Christophe Gans announced that Sony had officially ordered another installment in the Silent Hill film series. Gans stated that he would like to return to the franchise, if his commitment to Onimusha did not bar him from participating. Gans also confirmed that Roger Avary would be back to write the script.
In 2007, producer Don Carmody stated that a screenplay was slowly being developed and that "[Gans is] involved pretty heavily in another project right now" and would likely not return as director. As well, Avary said that he would not be returning to collaborate on the next film on the account that Gans would not be returning, either.
In September 2009, Sony Pictures announced that Roger Avary and producer Samuel Hadida were officially signed on the project and that filming would begin in 2010. Hadida stated that production would begin upon completion of Resident Evil: Afterlife. However, later that month, Roger Avary was sentenced to a 1 year jail term, and was unable to participate in the film's production.
In November 2009, Don Carmody told Shock Till You Drop that Christophe Gans was unlikely to return for the sequel, and that they were going to make the sequel "more accessible to a wider audience." Carmody stated that the film would feature a character from the first movie who is now older, implying that Sharon Da Silva or Alessa Gillespie would be returning, although Jodelle Ferland announced that she had not been contacted for the role.
In August 2010, Carmody said the sequel had "stalled" due to Avary's imprisonment, but that he still wanted to be involved with the film and had a basic outline for it.
Silent Hill: Revelation 3D is announcedEdit
In November 2010, it was announced that Lions Gate has begun pre-sales on the next installment and that Michael J. Bassett would direct the film, titled Silent Hill: Revelation 3D. Bassett revealed he had written his own screenplay, apparently replacing Roger Avary. He added that he would bring back as many of the core creative team as he can from the first film to keep its look and feel, but add "more darkness and fear into the mix as well".
Before filming began, Bassett was open to suggestions in casting the woman to play Heather, allowing fans to post the names of actresses on his blog that they believed could play her, provided that the actress can realistically portray an eighteen-year-old and has experience in other films. Adelaide Clemens was eventually chosen for the role of Heather.
In March 2011, the production team began filming in Cambridge, Ontario, Canada. On May 15th, 2011, Bassett announced that filming had ended. The film began post-production and several months later, on February 2nd, 2012, Bassett announced that post-production was finished.
On April 18th, 2012, it was announced that the film would be released on October 26, 2012 by Open Road Films.
On July 14th, 2012, Michael J. Bassett appeared at the San Diego Comic Con. He showed two clips from the movie. The first was a short clip showing the Mannequin Monster, and the second showed Vincent tied to an operating table surrounded by Nurses.
