For horror franchises, getting turned into a maze at Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights is a badge of honor. Hostel, Scream, The Thing, A Nightmare on Elm Street, the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and others have all been immortalized as interactive, three-dimensional experiences and this year, two new properties are being added to the list. Silent Hill and The Walking Dead will each be represented at the seasonal event, which takes place every Fall Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Studios Orlando. Also, DreamWorks has signed a deal to exclusively license their characters – such as Shrek, Madagascar and others – to a new theme park being developed in northern New Jersey.

You might have forgotten that there is a new Silent Hill film that went into production last year, and has been in the editing room in recent weeks. Seems like the movie comes up every once in a while, then news on it goes quiet for months at a time.

And so Silent Hill: Revelation 3D has been picked up by Open Road, which will release the movie on October 26 of this year. Read More »

Silent Hill wasn’t a huge success at the box office—domestically it failed to even gross beyond its $50 million budget—but apparently between its worldwide gross ($98 million) and DVD sales, it made enough that a sequel is now in order. The sequel, which has been given the title Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, is confirmed as being shot in 3D rather than post-converted (as should be the case with all productions from now on), and also has a writer and director on board to boot.
