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: Director Christophe Gans wanted to use the original soundtrack recordings of Akira Yamaoka's scores from the various "Silent Hill" video games in the film. However, due to a legality issue necessitating the hiring of a Canadian composer for the film, Jeff Danna was selected to serve as the lead credited composer. However, it was later confirmed that he actually composed very little original music for the film, and instead mainly focused on created re-mixes and new recordings of the themes from the video-games, so that he and director Gans could preserve Akira Yamaoka's music and style as much as possible.
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.
Alessa: Look at me, I'm burning.
Anna: Sinners deserve to lose their spawn.
Question: Why exactly does the radio in the movie (and the game) react with static when a monster approaches? I've never been able to figure this out.
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.
