Silent Hill Number Two. This was a terrible, confused movie. I think the primary flaw was the decision to change the nature of the cult controlling the town. From a narrative standpoint, it required them to re-litigate, in pretty excruciating detail, the mystery that had been the heart of the first film. Since unlike the first, the plot wasn't centered on an investigation here, that in turn meant a series of long, info-dumping monologues from various characters. Secondly, it just made certain plot elements non-sensical. They try to revive the sense of paranoia, persecution and over-zealotry with "burn the witch" segments, but later claim the girl was supposed to be a divine vessel. How can both be true, and if the latter, how can that be reconciled with the manner of her birth? In the third, it leaves people very unclear about the stakes of the conflict. Everyone stops treating the demon as real now, so I'm uncertain if we were just supposed to see the little girl fighting against this (apparently also evil?) pagan god? Why was merging with Alessa a second time important, and what did that have to do with ending the curse? Please don't try to watch this movie.
