Seven Good Movies Based on Video Games

2Silent Hill (2006)

This 2006 movie borrows heavily from the first game in the Silent Hill series. Radah Mitchell’s harried mother pursues her daughter through an otherworldly town.

Sean Bean’s role as her husband was reportedly tacked-on to give the film a “significant” male presence, yet it still manages to be nearly as unsettling and surprising as its source material. The same unfortunately can’t be said for its disappointing sequel which turned Carrie Anne Moss into a discount cenobite and killed any hopes of another film.]
