Return To Silent Hill Is Taking Its Inspiration From The Best Video Game In The Franchise – SlashFilm

In a “Silent Hill Transmission” news update video, Konami shared an exclusive first look at “Return to Silent Hill,” along with a new interview with Gans, who revealed that “Return” will be based heavily on the video game “Silent Hill 2.” He explained that he considers the first four games to be “masterpieces” and that he’s excited to adapt the “most adult” entry in the franchise, saying:

“It’s the story of James Sunderland. He has lost his beloved bride and he decides to go back to Silent Hill to find her. And he realizes that, basically, the town has changed. It’s become something like hell, his own hell. And he’s going through all the circles of hell to find his wife. And find also, somewhere, the truth about himself. This film adds an emotional layer to the horror, and certainly because of that, the horror is even more disturbing, even more unsettling. I consider that the first film was like an epic journey of horror. This one is much more like a deep dive into psychological horror.”

Many of the monsters shown in the first two “Silent Hill” films, like Pyramid Head and the faceless nurses, are actually supposed to be aspects of James’ tortured psyche from the games, which made his absence and their inclusion a real sticking point for some game fans. His joining the “Silent Hill” cinematic universe will give Gans the opportunity to potentially right some wrongs, story-wise, and give fans what they’ve wanted all along.
