Silent Hill, the movie, just never achieved the levels of creepy horror that the best of the Silent Hill games enjoyed, but that doesn't mean the sequel won't, especially if internet reports that Silent Hill 2 will be directed by Roger Avary turn out to be true. The source of the info: Novelist Brett Easton Ellis. When asked by interviewer at Chuck Palahniuk's website whether Avary was directing Glamorama, Ellis said, "He [Avary] is going to be shooting Silent Hill 2."
Avary, best known for having co-written Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs, was the screenwriter on Silent Hill, but didn't directed it, and when it comes to horror, the director is everything. As far as Avary's horror-director resume, it's relatively skinny. He directed stylish but ultimately disappointing (IMO) sci-fi outing Mr. Stitch back in 1995 s well as thriller Killing Zoe, but no outright horror is on the man's resume.
What do you think: Is Avary the man who's going to make a worthwhile Silent Hill movie, or would you rather see the directing gig go to another director? If so, who would you pick?
