First I would find people that wanted to make it and I would be certain that they were not copying from what has been done. A new Silent Hill would require some truly sick, dark people behind it. It is time to throw out the Silent Hill mold and try to ask ourselves again what it means to be scared. It requires a lot of inward looking. It isn’t just about making slimy, squirmy things on screen. Fear is inside us and we have to look at it closely before we can make other people feel it.
LIKE ZENITH FILMS ON FACEBOOK! THESE GUYS ARE CREATING AN AWESOME SILENT HILL FILM CALLED REQUIEM! THEY ARE RELEASING SCREEN SHOTS OF THE FILM!
Bloody Disgusting’s Silent Hill retrospective.
What then is “horror”? Well, to me, “horror” is when it crosses into our personal space. When that place which is our own personal space, our pure sanctuary, is invaded by the impure and the external –that is when horror happens. The boogeyman in the night is “fear”, the boogeyman under your bed or in your closet is “horror”. Seeing a person with a twisted stump of a hand pumping blood is “fear”, seeing your own is “horror”. Seeing a maggot crawling on a lump of meat is “fear”, seeing one crawl out of your infected wound is “horror”. So many great filmmakers, writers and game creators understood this. Stephen King with his “shitweasels” in “Dream Catcher; David Cronenburg and his twisted transformed bodies; Silent Hill 4: The Room using the concept of invading personal space. The list is endless. To summarize, a killer with a knife, machete or chainsaw that is about to break down your door is fright. Finding that the killer is already in your home is horror. Discovering that the killer is actually you? That is psychological horror.
Good look at Toymunkey’s Heather Mason and Original Bubble Head Nurse statues!
We will be entering the final quarter of the year soon and will hopefully see the release of Robbie and Heather before the year clocks 2014. While we didnt get any news on a new Silent Hill game we got some great exclusive high quality merch from Toymunkey. What do you guys think of Toymunkey Studios presence this year? Would you guys want more Silent Hill statues in 2014? SH4? SH1? Which statues would you like Toymunkey to work on next?
Hello Silent Hill Fans! We got the remainder inventory of Limited Silent Hill T-shirts from SDCC available on our website! Order them before they’re all gone! http://www.toymunkeystudios.com/tshirts.html
Toymunkey Studios has posted the Silent Hill shirts in the many variants except for the Robbie shirts which are exclusive to Japan only through Mamegyorai. Many of you are probably excited to hear this news as they are official Konami merchandise and an easy checkout through paypal, problem is however, many of the sizes with colors are sold out and the shirts run up to 45 dollars after shipping charges… Im guessing this is due to the high demand and limited shirt number which I dont know they will replenish once all gone. So if you are interested and they have the shirt that fits you you can purchase it here. For me? I will be waiting till they have my size and color as well as a free shipping coupon code…
Also exclusive RPT and BHN statues seem to still be up for grabs on their website here.
Mamegyorai Have posted their Silent Hill merchandise for sale with many options and color variants available with many of the shirts having another image on the back. The Japanese price looks to be quite a bit when converted to USD, but it appears they will also be distributed and sold here in America through Toymunkey Studios! I am hoping they will have them up and available at Comic-Con this year which is why they are probably holding back on an announcement.
Check out Silent Nerd’s short video clip in tribute to Silent Hill 4: The Room!
I think when people say I sounded bitter, they were referring mainly to Metal Gear Solid and Silent Hill, and you know, bitter is just a word. I was certainly regretful, and disappointed, and in a sense felt victimized by a few people. From the beginning, when you’re working as a freelancer for a company, they don’t want to put your name out there. So you’re already kind of a stealth figure. If I’m bitter with Konami over Silent Hill and MGS to any extent, it’s just that they weren’t very honest about admitting my role in it. Watch the making of Silent Hill videos and look for me - you might see me in a couple of scenes, I appear in it, but it’s as if I pop up in the way and they can’t get rid of me. But I did everything for those games, and so it would have been very hard to make those videos without my appearing in them, but the fact they managed to do it is an indication of how hard they tried to get me out of it. My question is, where the heck am I in those videos? I was there every single day, so yeah, it bothers me a little bit… The bitterness comes out because I was playing the role of a director in a very unique way - and I didn’t get any credit for it. If I had been a Konami employee, I would have been in those making of videos, and they would have said: here’s a central figure from the localised versions of the games.
Hi, it’s me Emitremmus.
I’m composing a tribute fan album to the Silent Hill saga, inspired by Akira Yamaoka. You can listen few tracks on my web site. The album will contains some cover and reinterpretations of some famous song made by Akira for the SH. I’m working hardly to build something of personally suggestive in atmospheres, melodies and feelings and hope that 2013 leads me into the release of this full-lenght album.
This work is made by a gamer to the gamers, before the musician and the creativity, I know the feeling that Silent Hill has on all us, so I tend to recreate the mysterious and romantic expressions in an amateur music project. From ambient-rock to electronica, I wanna travel with you my new journey through all these “Forgotten Memories”. Each track, a story; each story, some feelings.
Feel free to comment giving me suggestions and feedbacks, and don’t forget to follow me.
C’ya in that special place… have a nice day.
Haha this made me laugh. Its like Konami come out and said, “April fools! We will release the actual Silent Hill HD Collection with the quality that was expected and deserved. We had a good year of laughs but lets get serious” Just hoping Tom Hulett DOESN’T come back today and say “JK, i didnt quit” Just joking. Anyway got some good laughs. Happy April fools.
