I am not a fan of the Silent Hill games. Let’s get that right out in the open. I’m a fan of horror, but something about that series of games…they scare the living hell out of me. Maybe it’s the demon babies that you have to kill, or maybe it’s the faceless nurses, I don’t know. It just scares me to the point that I can’t play them for more than an hour, let alone with all the lights in the house on. When the first movie came out, I avoided it, hearing that it played much like the video game. But Universal Orlando and Hollywood are going to have houses at their Halloween Horror Nights events…and like the characters in the movies, no matter how hard I struggle against it, I’m pulled right in.
Since the house was announced at San Diego Comic-Con a few weeks back, I’ve visited the movie. It was disturbing, confusing and ended on a solid note that had me floored. The movie studio didn’t have the trailer ready during Comic-Con, instead showing off the faceless nurse fight. But they have since rolled out a trailer for the film that opens in October.
