    It looks good, and from what people on The Horror Channel.Com have been saying, it's very true to the game (except for the fact that the lead role is played by a woman instead of a man. Pyramid head rules!!

    If it dies in the theater, it dies in real life.

    Nah, that's the awful-looking "Stay Alive" movie, not Silent Hill. The trailer made it look pretty good.

    This looks good (for a video game movie) but nothing beats the experience of playing the game.

    While I like Silent Hill, I'll be passing on this, there's no way this is going to be as frightening and messed up as the games.

    I'm excited to see this, and while I think it will be good, I don't think it will be nearly as good as the game.

    IMO the BEST Survival Horror game to date... though the last one was pretty weak.

    I have been waiting for this and have seen the trailer a few times. I refuse to read ANY reviews or view any more speculations or watch any new trailers....

    I've seen enough and will be at the first viewing at my local theater

    :bassist: :hyper: :D :bag: hope it is as good as I hope :ninja:

    check out the website, at least! it's awesome! :hyper:
     
  13. It looks like an amalgam of Silent Hill 1/2/3 story bits.

    Interesting. I'm definitely looking forward to it.

    the plot is essentially the first game. some of the monsters look like ones from the second one.

    i never played the first one, so i don't know what the monsters look like.

    Either/Or. This is applicable of everything comin' outta Hollywood these days.

    The link opened, but took forever to activate...I got bored waiting. Hey I got cable, and a new Dell, the web-page was draggin' butt.
     
  17. Essentially, yes, but there are a number of things that are from the other games, such as the Pyramid Heads and some of the environments they had shown in the trailer.

    If you have the chance, definitely check out the first one. I haven't played it myself but I downloaded a video walkthrough once judging from which the game is really awesome (and also pretty damn scary, you'll be fighting plenty of monsters.)
    The game already has the big bosses and the creepy otherworld locations that appear in the sequels.

    The only drawback is the graphics, though, although the environments still look pretty good today, the character models look extremely blocky, as Silent Hill 1 is a PS1 game.

    I think for myself, the best horror title I've played as of yet has been Condemned: Criminal Origins on the Xbox 360(if you can throw it in with that genre).

    I've watched the trailer to the Silent Hill movie a few times, and it's looking pretty good. I can't wait to see what Pyramid Head is like. This movie can't be as bad as House of the Dead, so it's got that going for it. ;)

    I've not stepped into the world of Xbox yet... I've read about that one though. It looks good
