Silent Hill

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Rose shines the flashlight down into the mine shaft, the light from the flashlight can be seen reflecting off of it, as if the lava down in the shaft is just a picture (or on a green screen).

Revealing mistake: As the miners are trying to break down the washroom door, the camera pans over the door frame from Rose's side to the miners' side. Just as it settles into its final position, you can see the sliding wall section they used to allow the camera to pan, sliding back into position on the left of the doorframe.

Revealing mistake: When the young woman's skin is ripped off by "Red Pyramid", you can tell from the texture of her skin, and the way it moves that it is fake.

Revealing mistake: When Christopher first meets Officer Gucci on the bridge, it is absolutely pouring down rain on and around them. However the river which they are just a few feet from is calm and not being rained on. I know that rain has to stop at some point, but they are on a bridge and no rain is hitting the water below the bridge.

Revealing mistake: When Rose first lights her lighter after the first transition to the otherworld, there is a bright orange light projecting onto her arm. Not only is it far too bright, but it is at an angle not possible given the way she is holding the lighter.

Continuity mistake: When Rose retrieves her phone from her Jeep, between shots the strap that the phone is attached to suddenly appears around her neck with no motion of her doing so.

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.
