Silent Hill

Post by Steve » Mon Mar 05, 2007 9:47 am

I was a big fan of the first game, and I for the most part enjoyed the movie. The scene where the monster rips the girls skin off was a little over the top, but all in all I gave it a B+.

I enjoyed the movie a lot. I have played through 2 and 4 and watched 3 to the end. Great games all. I thought the movie captured the mood of the games very well, and the music was great as well.

I liked the movie a lot, except for the excessive and ridiculous gore at the end. Barbed wire whipping around and people screaming just became silly.

Even better is a breakbeat song that samples from it.. "I.. Have many names. I.. Have many names."

I agree. Most of the movie was unnecessarily gory. It wasn't the gore that made the games scary, but the ambiance...

A lot of the gore, which wasn't much if you think about it, was for shock value. And it worked on me. They were pretty crazy. The ambiance is definately what scared the shit out of me when playing them. Especially when I was playing the second game and I had to go back home, around 1 am, and it was foggy as hell.
