Similar to the first Silent Hill movie, there will be some tweaks to the approach of story. What elements from Silent Hill 3 were borrowed and adapted in this new movie? Quite a few, and it seems the movie itself follows the game's plot and synoposis rather closely. What do you think of this movie adaptation? Is there any alterations or modifications to the plot that you are concerned over?
