Just one more day and we can all submit our fragile psyches to the mind rending maelstrom that is Silent Hill. I am overly excited about this movie. Probably so much so that it will never satisfy my grisly cravings. As far as I am concerned, no survival horror game rivals Silent Hill in pure terror. There is great fear in Silent Hill, fear of the unknown, even fear of ourselves. The characters aren’t all good. They are not heroes. The monsters aren’t something our brains can easily process like, say, zombies. The environments are gritty, dirty, and steeped in sadness. So, yeah, there is basically no way this movie will live up to my expectations. I really hope that I’m wrong, though.
