It was given to a writer/director team who understood it. That was my hope for Bioshock, given Verbinski's glorious visions of deep-sea horror in the Pirates films. Now that he's off the project, my hopes are dimming substantially.


I watched Silent Hill again after I posted that and yep, I like it. It looks great.

If they understood it they would have made a much better movie.

I'd argue that they made a much better story than the last three Silent Hill games. It wasn't perfect, but they clearly 'got' the mood and creatures of SH. A lesser team would have made it Resident Evil 4 with some hottie karate-kicking Pyramid Head.

It LOOKED like Silent Hill, absolutely, but it was about as scary as watching the developer play the game and then stop playing to tell you EVERYTHING that's going on. That movie was bad.
