The original Silent Hill movie, for all of its many layers of gore and flayed flesh, is considered by many to be one of the best video-game adaptations ever made. It’s hard to say anything about the upcoming sequel, Silent Hill: Revelations 3D, at this point, as shooting has only just begun. But some new photos from one of the film’s sets, an amusement park — the fictional town’s Lakeside Amusement Park — are simply gorgeous.
The photos are the work of professional photographer Sara Collaton (via /Film), who captured each scene during a late-night shoot using long-exposure techniques (keeping the shutter open for long periods in low-light situations, to capture images in darkness without using flash). You can check out one of the images above, and I highly recommend following the above link to Sara’s website, where you’ll find the rest.
The amusement park is said to play a prominent role in Revelation‘s story. Lakeside Amusement Park featured into several of the Silent Hill games, including the first and third ones. The previous movie incorporated elements from the first three games, so it’s hard to say how Lakeside will be represented in the coming sequel. There’s not much signage in Sara’s photos to draw conclusions from, but I think we can all agree that the visuals themselves are awfully cool.
