Silent Hill - The Spence Edit

Spence?s Edit of Silent Hill is what this film should have been like originally.

Removing all of Sean Bean?s side plot, which to me seemed irrelevant, greatly improves the flow of the film. It now builds atmosphere, it feels more creepy, more disturbing. Nothing whatsoever is lost from removing the whole subplot, in fact, after watching this edit you realise how irrelevant it is.

Good work Spence!

My rating of the original: 5/10
My rating of this FanEdit: 8/10
