While we all eagerly await the release of Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, we already know one thing for an absolute fact - the Cambridge, Ontario location is a dead ringer for that spooky place we all love so much.
The Internet has changed everything. It used to be that you would have to wait months to see images from the sets of your most anticipated movies. If some onlookers happened to be around with a camera, they'd snap a few photos for themselves, and that would be that. Those days are long gone.
Now this is the kind of news we love to report. Three of the stars of the original Silent Hill are returning to the franchise, and we even have a picture of one of them in action! From the Press Release:
With filming now under way in Canada for Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, the video game company that launched the franchise, Konami, has chimed in with its thoughts on the second film. From the Press Release

Wondering what direction the ever so twisty and turny Silent Hill series will take for its second cinema adventure? Wonder no more as director Michael J. Bassett sheds some light on what lies beyond all of that misty fog.
A couple of days ago we confirmed that the next chapter in the theatrical Silent Hill saga, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, is indeed on its way. A few more details have come to flesh things out a bit for you! From the Press Release
Some huge news out of AFM for fans of the Silent Hill franchise: Michael Bassett, director of Solomon Kane (a film we're still hoping to see someday soon), will both write and direct Silent Hill: Revelation 3D (the newly renamed sequel to Christophe Gans' Silent Hill) on location this winter in the Toronto area.
It's an odd week for DVD and Blu-ray lovers with a couple of new releases but mostly just a lot of rehashes and semi-strange pairings such as Identity and Secret Window .
Earlier in the month video game journalists gathered together in San Francisco for Konami's annual Gamers Night, an event where Konami reveals new line-ups, hands-on gameplay, and sometimes teaser trailers that make you cry “MOAR”.
Last year, Jeff Schiefelbein's Saw: The Haunted Attraction scared up a lot of business and became recognized as one of Southern California's biggest and best Halloween mazes. This year, Scheifelbein and his crew have returned to deliver Sinister Pointe - a new attraction with two brand spankin' new mazes: "Fear", an original maze of Jeff's design and "Silent Hill" which throws you right in the middle of Konami's terrifying game series.
Speaking as someone who’s lost a loved one at the hands of a drunk driver, this is a tough story to sympathize with. Academy Award winning writer/director Roger Avary has been sentenced to a year in prison after a drunk driving incident claimed the life of a friend and left others with serious injuries.
Here at Dread we're absolute suckers for haunted mazes and attractions. Last year we saw more than our share of badass parks from Universal's Halloween Horror Nights to Knott's Scary Farm...but one of the stand-outs was Jeff Schiefelbein's jaw-dropping "SAW: The Haunted Attraction" in Orange County, CA.
We’ll have to consider this pure conjecture right now, but the Canucks over at HorrorMovies.ca got word from a reliable scooper that Silent Hill 2 is still in the planning stages and looking to shoot in Toronto.
Silent Hill V is no more. But fear not, Silent Hill fans, because we're only talking about the name. In keeping with its war vet returns from war theme, Silent Hill V is now known as Silent Hill Homecoming.
