The first trailer for Silent Hill: Revelation — oh, I’m sorry, Silent Hill: Revelation 3-D — is here, and while I can’t speak to the movie in terms of the original games or the first movie, I can say with 100% certainly that neither of them contain as much shit flying directly towards the camera as this trailer does. The real terror is knowing that someone, somewhere, thought that making even the “3-D” at the end break apart and fly at the viewer was somehow cool.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
