Silent Hill

Factual error: When Officer Cybil Bennett is burned alive over a roaring bonfire, we see her clothing start to smoke and the skin of her face blacken, split open and peel away from the intense heat (all of which are added digital effects, of course). Yet her blonde hair does not burn, smoke, nor even singe as her face is roasted. Her hair should have been the first thing to burn away.

Continuity mistake: When Chris pulls up at the bridge barricade, he gets out and his collar is down. In the very next shot his Burberry collar is sticking right up.

Trivia: Ironically the evil cult in this film is almost the exact opposite of that from the games. In the games, the cult is a malevolent force, trying to give birth to their dark god, and the burning of Alyssa was part of an ongoing process to help summon it. In this film, they're essentially extremely fanatical Christians who are trying to cleanse what they view as "evil" and "ungodly" and the burning of Alyssa was done because she was seen as "impure" and in need of cleansing by fire.

Question: Can somebody out there explain the ending for me? It made no sense. Someone told me they believed the mother and daughter, as well as the cop died in the accident and they were trapped in the town. However I don't buy that as the father and the other police found no bodies in the crash.

Chosen answer: They did not die in the accident. Rather, Alessa's rage and the demon's power caused the town of Silent Hill to fracture into at least three different "dimensions" that we know of (the real world, "fog world" and "other world", plus potentially others). Rose and Sharon are unfortunately stuck inside of one of those alternative realities. The sequel also confirms that they are very much alive.
