Old Jan 22nd, 2006, 07:48 AM        Silent Hill - Scary things that look like vagina insides!
The movie really seems like it has all the potential in the world to be really good. There's a lot of work being put into the film, and there's seemingly a desire to be faithful to the source material.

http://www.sonypictures.com/movies/silenthill/

I never played the games (I can't, because they scare the shit out of me), but I know the stories for the most part. And people who have played the games keep saying how perfect this movie seems to be.

Is it actually possible that we'll get a GOOD video game adaptation for once? Or is it all a trick, and someone will go "FOOLED YOU!" and show us a movie about Michelle Rodriguez blowing shit up while a heavy metal soundtrack plays, and then Matrix-fights a bunch of zombies?

I have mixed feelings. The Silent Hill games are well adapted to movies (Especially number 2) because they're heavily focused on plot and environment and less on action (as opposed to, say, RE). Silent Hills 3 and 4 had some of the scariest shit yet, especially 3's hospital area. All of that gives me hope for the movie since it seems to me that it could be easily converted without losing a lot of the original charm.

On the other hand, they altered the story of SH1 a bit and that worries me. Last I heard it was something like a merger between the plots of the first and second one, but I don't know the specifics.

It's kind of loosely based on the first two games, but it seems more intended to be a story all its own.

But story changes aside, it really seems that the integrity of the games is being preserved. Go to the official site (with sound), and look at the new trailer.

I've never played SH but I don't think I could if a B horror game like Resident Evil made me scared of the dark.

But yeah, the movie looks pretty awesome. I'll definantly check it out.

It comes out on my birfday

It's looking fairly good, but there are too many living people, like in the scene on the staircase where she yells "It's coming!"... part of what made the games so great was the lack of human companionship so that you were truly alone

Pyramid Head has nice feet. There better be a sex scene with him and the mannequins or I'm walking out

Can someone screenshot Pyramid Head for me? I keep missing him in the video, and I don't know why.

I've been thinking about it, and probably only fans of the SH games (or, at least, people who know what it's about) are going to enjoy the movie. Pyramid Head is one of the scariest villains ever, I think, on the basis of his sheer up-fuckedness, but he's probably going to look really goofy to people who haven't played the games.

Edit: Also, I thought Silent Hill was in Illinois. If you walk around the town you find Illinois state signs, the Chicago News in the school, and I think Route 66 is supposed to pass near it.

And I thought the main character in Silent Hill was supposed to be a guy. :/

Then again, a 32 year old grown man screaming in terror and running like a bitch from a bunch of fucked up monsters isn't exactly the best movie material, so I can kinda see why they changed Harry to a woman. :/

This will fucking rule. I don't care if non-fans don't get it or aren't creeped out by it. I haven't even played the first one, nor have I finished 2, but damn, is it creepy.

Did anyone vote in that poster contest they had?

I think they found a winner, since I was at the theater today and saw this:



It's even more unsettling in reality.

Not even then. Might be the bottle of JD but it's still not scary
