There was a Silent Hill themed haunted house at Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights and it was awesome.
 
2012-10-24 04:16:37 PM
Well, something that "looks" like Google Maps. Would have been cooler if they'd actually used the GM engine.
 
2012-10-24 04:25:26 PM
please. Where are the lovely ladies in tight outfits? It's not a promotion without ladies in tight outfits.

My favorite was for the schlocky monster movie Slithus.
 
No one is admitted without a "Slithus Survival Kit" (available for free with purchase of a movie ticket).
 
Also you could MEET Slithus at limited engagements.
 
I don't know that I ever actually SAW the movie but I remember being very excited about the possibility of meeting Slithus.

Eh, not impressed at all. If it had "satellite" and, better yet, Street View it would be awesome but a general map like this is a part of any decent movie/game production.

If you based it on the location where it was filmed, the map isn't even close to accurate!

Yeah, I was disappointed by the lack of Street View as well.

When I was 10 I REALLY wanted to see "Alien" and "Slithis" was playing the same theater. My mom asked my if I'd rather see that one instead. I declined.

I never could get into the Silent Hill games....
 
2012-10-24 07:27:25 PM
I never played the games or got into the movies but that scene in the first movie where that monster thing ripped that lady's skin off FREAKED ME the F OUT!

Now seeing Pyramid Head on street view, THAT would be a promotion.

I read this as Slither, that bad/silly horror movie with Nathan Fillion.

Yep. I think by far one of the best themed ones there. I was a little let down by "The Walking Dead" haunted house in comparison.
 
2012-10-24 07:38:25 PM
The map isn't working.
 
2012-10-24 07:47:55 PM
The nurse monsters only make sense in the context of Silent Hill 2, yet have been in every game since. I don't think Konami itself knows what SH2 was really about. Amazing game.

Eh, zombies are pretty boring "in real life". Meaning at the park, they frowned upon your shooting the actors in the head so the fun in shambling zombies is limited.
 
2012-10-24 07:49:58 PM
Going down to street view on the indicators shows a movie clip. That was clever.
 
2012-10-24 08:03:34 PM
Is anyone else bugged by the insanely wrong scale on the bottom left?
 
2012-10-24 08:06:41 PM
Damn, Silent Hill is HUUUUUUGEEEE

On another note, I wish the sequel wasn't 3D, they're already advertising the hokey cinematography.

SH wasn't horrible, but it could have used a few more drafts. And less Bean.

They sorta make sense in the movie as well. A horribly disfugured girl be tended to by attractive or even normal women would start to see them as monsters as well.

Sorry, I just meant the games. That makes sense in the movie though.

There is a "Street View" at the locations with Orange Tags, and each shows a short movie clip, after which you can sort of pan the camera, but its not 360 street view.
 
2012-10-24 09:16:01 PM
I hope this movie has more Pyramid Head.

/I loved Silent Hill 2 and 3 games

I clicked on two of the location spots. Both had street view.

It was surprisingly entertaining.

It's nice but it's not the Silent Hill from the games.

Disagree. HHN (Orlando) just wasn't as good this year as in years past. The scare zones were the worst ever, and the Penn & Teller and Alice Cooper houses were pretty crappy. Still a lot of fun overall.
 
2012-10-24 10:23:14 PM
Meh. I'd much rather see Google Middle Earth. That'd be badass.
 
2012-10-24 10:27:12 PM
Meh. One of the saving graces of the first movie was that they didn't go all hollywood schlock with it. It seemed low key and a sincere attempt to tell an interesting story. This one looks like Saw meets Halloween 3D.
 
2012-10-24 10:29:16 PM
so should i go see The Walking Dead @ HHN...i'm heading down to Orlando in a few days and want to know

Nice use of authors in the street names like the other Silent Hill games. Matheson and Simmons as major streets? Awesome.

The street view was buggy but kind of cool
 
2012-10-24 10:43:10 PM
I loved the movie because it felt so much like the games, right down to certain camera angles appearing in both, as well as the music from the games being used well. Sure, there werer some big changes, but they didn't hurt the story. Except the movie did come across as really hating women and wanting to punish them. That's fine, I'm all for punishing those whores...

However, since SH 2 & 3 there hasn't been a decent SH game produced. Some of them are not bad, but with the new gen of machines we should be seeing much better graphics, much smoother engines and much larger stories...the franchise could be huge, much more popular amongst horror fans than the Resident Evil series (which I love) just based on the horror elements alone.

Finally, for the next Silent Hill movie the tag line should be "Evil comes home..." because that would be badass.

If they could work traffic into it, it would be even better.

It has Street View. Everything looks covered in ash/snow.

Mugato: Eh, zombies are pretty boring "in real life".


Really? Do this.
Run for your lives

I ran it back in 2011, everything was fine till I came around the corner and I was face to face with a field full of zombies. They're just people i makeup I know that. You know that....but if you're like me, there is a tiny part of your brain -- the primordial part that will hesitate and maybe even panic.

The guy next to me punched a zombie (portrayed by a petite woman) square in the throat. He was horrified seconds after the punch, but it was a total reflex action. Throughout the afternoon (after my race) I talked to many other 'zombies' they told similar tales.

There was one zombie who was deeply 'in character' snarling, and swatting at people.

Zombies, they creep me out...
 
2012-10-24 11:25:30 PM
It's not google maps unless it has street vi...shiat the farking bed.
 
2012-10-24 11:25:30 PM
I never saw the movie, but that video game scared the hell out of me. Do not play that game alone in the dark at 2am with the sound turned up a bit.

3 was the last really good SH game. The Room wasn't terrible but it wasn't the same. I like that 2 and 3 got the HD treatment I would like a reboot of 1 with Heavy Rain style graphics.

Horror, as a genre, hasn't fared well. People just don't care any more. They don't want the stupidly bad controls for the sake of having stupidly bad controls that build tension. They don't want contrived camera angles to hide monsters and be a pain. They don't want the 'indesctructable baddie' chasing them on an endless timer. They don't want to not be able to slaughter the mobs and collect the phat lewts.

I'm part of that group, I found horror games beyond tedious and tiresome until RE4, and it wasn't really survival horror any more.

Basically, the things which could make a survival game, are the same things people don't want in a game. Works great for cinematography, could make a great movie, but terrible not-fun game.

Yes and Yes. Now that you said it, it's painfully obvious that the next "real" SH game should be done a la Heavy Rain. It just has to happen.
 
2012-10-24 11:59:52 PM
I loved the first half of the Silent Hill movie, and hated the second half. One of the reasons that the early Silent Hill games worked so well was that you don't really know what's going on. The more they try to explain it, the less creepy it becomes.

The goofy cult just completely took me out of the movie. A wiser choice would have been to keep the cult's true nature vague and ambiguous. Silent HIll 3's presentation ventured dangerously close to over-explaining things, but pulled back at just the right moment.

You make some great points. I wish the people making the games (not the same as the ones who own the properties) were being paid enough (or given the space) to address those very issues. But I think horror can be done right. Just like the other fellow said, I think Silent Hill could be great as a Heavy Rain style game. An average Joe (or Joette) with no combat skills stuck in a town would explain why there's a lack of serious gamer combat. Camera angles can be addressed, but with all the fog and ash, there's plenty of room for suspense and horror. Also, horror really relies on the the story, not just on game mechanics...tell a really good story with strong character development and you have something magical. In SH when that nurse realised she was dead and slowly started changing into a ghoul while crying and begging to be saved....that haunted me for a few days. But only because she seemed like an interesting character.

since sh 2 and 3 taught us that what we see in Silent Hill is not necessarily truth, and that the 'monsters' in the game t'aint necessarily so...................... what exactly really did happen there?

Anyone looking for a good horror game needs to know about Amnesia: The Dark Descent.
