He's Reserving Spots 8-10 For Uwe Boll...

Christophe Gans, who gave us the terrific Euro-genre-bender "Brotherhood Of The Wolf" a few years back, debuts his newest film "Silent Hill" this weekend. Yes, it's yet another video game adaptation, but the advance imagery (moody!) and trailer (Alice Krige!) for this Ontario-shot spookfest look mighty inviting. Gans knows a thing or two about the genre in which he works, too, given his L.A. Times list of the top seven (?) modern horror films . He's cool enough to recognize the underrated genius of John Carpenter's "Prince Of Darkness"--I think like "Silent Hill" already!
