Hollywood returns to Silent Hill
With John Carpenter's Halloween and Stanley Kubrick's The Shining both back in cinemas on Halloween, you might be forgiven for thinking that Hollywood has lost confidence in the current crop of horror movies. But that's not the case.
Few genres are quite as bankable, and even the ropiest of horror flicks are virtually guaranteed to earn back their budgets.
This year, Sinister got in early and has already scared up £4 million at the UK box office, leaving better reviewed films for dust. Last week it was joined by Paranormal Activity 4, the latest film in a lucrative, seemingly endless franchise. Paramount doesn't even bother screening these to the press anymore.
On Halloween itself, they're joined by Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, the belated sequel to 2006's critically unloved Silent Hill, which made $100m at the global box office and spawned a comic book series, action figures and so on. This too has yet to be screened to critics.

All we can tell you is that it builds on the story of the first film, which was in turn adapted from a popular computer game.
Stars Sean Bean and Radha Mitchell are back, while Adelaide Clemens gets the role of the young girl who's sucked into the spooky nightmare world of Silent Hill.
Taking over as director is Brit Michael J Bassett, who knows his way around a horror movie, having given us Deathwatch and Wilderness as well as the bigger-budgeted Robert E Howard adaptation Solomon Kane.
