News - First Silent Hill movie trailer releasedPosted by Ash Paulsen at 06:17:09 AM EST on 1.11.2006.
Fans of Konami's otherworldly, intensely disturbing and downright freaky survival-horror series Silent Hill have had it rough lately. It's been more than a year since the fans have gotten their fill of the series' latest title, Silent Hill 4: The Room... and the game wasn't even that great, and is widely considered to be the series' low point. Those clamoring for another trip through Silent Hill may get their fix pretty soon, however... though it won't be in the format that most are used to. What I am talking about, of course, is the upcoming Silent Hill movie.
Now before you all start moaning in collective agony, wait a second: this one actually looks like it might turn out to be good. First off, infamously awful game-to-movie director Uwe Boll has not so much as touched this one, which is already a very good sign. Instead, Silent Hill is being directed by Christopher Ganz (Brotherhood of the Wolf) and stars Deborah Kara Unger (The Salton Sea), with a part also being played by Sean Bean (The Lord of the Rings). The movie chronicles a mother's search for her missing daughter in mysteriously and utterly horrifying town of Silent Hill.
There is no word yet on whether or not the movie takes place during any part of the main timeline already established by the games, but reportedly, series producer and composer Akira Yamaoka has been very involved with every step of the movie's production, so much so that nothing gets green-lighted without his prior approval. (This is most definitely a good move, considering how most game-to-movie transplants go.)
Of course, I can tell you about it all I want, but there's nothing like seeing it for yourself. Now, we all finally can: the first trailer has been released online, and you can view it at the movie's official teaser site here.
Be warned: it is creepy... especially the end. You'll know what I mean.
Overall, it really does look as if the looks, sounds, and feel of the games is being accurately preserved for the movie, which can be good or bad depending on how much you can handle while playing the games. Either way, we'll know soon enough: Silent Hill hits theatres on April 21.
