I can't post in this thread anymore with out feeling stupid because of everyone making these huge posts with theories, points and such. All I can really do is comment on the trailer (which I got from Amaterasu's link).

Whoever said that it looks too bright wasn't too off. Compared to the game, yeah it is alittle bright. However, it'd probably be unreasonable to keep things that dark or foggy. To me, it felt like it was straying away some from the SH roots when the woman was using a cell phone and there was more than three people in one place.

One thing I can say I liked tho' was seeing the woman using a lighter instead of a flashlight. That was one thing that got me, every main character (except Henry) had a pocket flashlight and a pocket on their chest to put it in.

Well anyway, that's all I got I guess...

Replaying SH2 got me thinking yesterday...do you suppose there's any connection between the mystery jumper from Brookhaven and the way the mannequins throw themselves off the tops of buildings?

If it were any other game I wouldn't comment, but given the way the Silent Hill series is crazy go-nuts over references and symbolism I think it could be referring to something.

I mean, I know the monsters in SH2 are going for the whole eros/thanatos thing, but that doesn't mean they can't go further, right?

Also: Jezum craw that's a freaky picture of Alessa. Where's her fuggen mouth!?

I'm totally gonna snag me one of those posters when the cinema across the street gets them...I couldn't forgive m'self if I didn't.

Wait,I thought the freaky no-mouth Alessa was the poster they were using...given it's on the site and all the cinema's in my area have that as the poster on their websites.

Still...even if it isn't I'ma try and filch one of whatever they eventually do go for. So determined am I that I even considered getting a job for the sole purpose of getting one. <_< >_>

About the lighter, did you notice that what was happening in the trailer is the exact same thing that happened to Harry during the first part of SH1? It's where he sees shadows of his daughter running into an alleyway. He follows the shadow and is led into the alley, where it starts getting dark; at that point he has no flashlight, and has to use the lighter. Then he stumbles upon the corpse tied up to the fence, and after looking at it, is attacked from behind by those mumbler things: the trailer breaks this up, but any time you see her with a lighter chances are it's going to be THAT section.

Oh, also...did anybody notice that in the trailer, Sharon is holding almost exactly the same drawing book that Cheryl is in the opening of SH1? It even says "DRAWING BLOCK" on it. Even if they get some technical details about the movie wrong, such as the nurses or Pyramid Head not belonging, you have to applaud their attention to detail.

I stand corrected, he's right o.o Even in the game though, when you go back to the alley and see the book, it still has that same gibberish on it you pointed out.

Weird. I went into Silent Hill 3 though, and on the bed near the end of the game is the same book, and it DOES say "DRAWING BLOCK". Guess they decided after the first game that sticking with gibberish for book covers wasn't a very good idea, hehe.

After having just watched a speed run of Silent Hill (I've played the game before but it's been awhile, so I d/led a speed run of it), I am now more anxious than before to see this movie, but I am actually kind of hoping the movie will be a little better than the game.

The first one was alright, but it would seem this movie is going to incorporate all (or at least some) of the other games, which is an exciting prospect.

Believe it or not, I forgot about that part. Whoops.

I actually went to the theater to see the new Silent Hill trailer. Ifrit posted from a viable source that it was going to play with Underworld: Evolution. I don't know if anyone else's posted about this, because I only went back to the last page but... damn, I say, the trailer looks freaking awesome. They've got the environments down to the t and, on top of that, they're not using a bunch of nu-metal music like all these other horror games turned movies. Akira Yamaoka is the shiznit! Woo-hoo!

Link please?

http://speeddemosarchive.com/demo.pl?SilentHill_3529

There are a ton on this site (speed runs I mean).

there are also a ton of speed runs for different games on www.archive.org. Cool beans.

I will admit to you, though, UE that the quality even for HQ is still a little bad.

hmm, does anyone know of an archive of Silent Hill 2 FMVs? Otherwise, I'd like to know how I might capture them for myself, if they are not attainable...
Ive got them on CDR somewhere...which ones did you want?

Also, I like the music for that horrific porn one. The bit when you're at the very end of the hotel in SH2? Love it. Shame it's not on the OST.
