Konami of America, announced that its hit psychological horror videogame series, Silent Hill, will be released worldwide as a major motion picture. Production company Davis Films will produce the feature film adaptation of Konami's popular franchise. Produced by Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo, the Silent Hill games thrust players into a nightmarish world where they must unravel twisted storylines and battle grotesque creatures and terrifying monsters.

Bringing the series to the big screen is prolific producer Samuel Hadida whose credits include blockbuster films, True Romance, directed by Tony Scott and written by Quentin Tarantino, Spider, directed by David Cronenberg, and Brotherhood of the Wolf, directed by Christophe Gans. Gans, who also directed the major motion picture, Crying Freeman, has been appointed as the director of the Silent Hill feature film.

Silent Hill is a groundbreaking game with an atmosphere that has mesmerized millions of gamers all over the world - it is scary and clever, said Christophe Gans. I am very proud to be associated with this game.

Working closely with the production team, Konami Corporation will help recreate the universal appeal of the game by overseeing the script development, participating in the design of all the monsters, creatures and characters as well as aiding in the film's soundtrack composition.

The success of the Silent Hill series is based on a perfect blend of suspense, plot twists and captivating characters, said Geoff Mulligan, Chief Operating Officer of Konami of America, Inc. We are confident that Samuel Hadida and his talented team will capture and create an unforgettable movie-going experience.

Silent Hill is the premiere franchise in the horror videogame genre with over four million copies sold in Japan, the U.S. and Europe. Silent Hill 3 for PlayStation 2 was recently released in August 2003 and is considered to be the best game in the series. With a terrifying narrative, spectacular graphics and a bloodcurdling soundtrack, Silent Hill 3 has already garnered numerous industry accolades and awards.

To further strengthen the Konami brand worldwide, the company is currently pursuing film production deals for its other blockbuster videogame franchises.

Silent Hill Movie Makes Sense

what are talking about resident evil has ever been a great game, but the movie sucked really hard thought, in the movie the girl just figth the zombie dogs, and how can be that possible, if they are dogs and and zombies, plus in the game characters dont figth either, i hope they dont screw with this to. By the way in the res movie they should have gone for the outside city struggle vs zombies and not with just umbrella. Ill guess that if they come out with res2 theyll just make their characters figth and beat the nemesis instead of running like in the game.

I liked the Resident evil Movie although I do agree it was not a Horror at all but a Shoot em up action movie with a Sci Fi Twist, I do think they could do alot better in a sequel... however I think Silent hill as a Movie if Done Right will Blow Resident evil out of the water.

Lets hope they make a movie of silent hill 2. I think thats the best of the three. If they can capture the mood, the excellent plot and the interesting characters, it's going to be gooood. If they make it an all out action-movie like RE, it's gonna suck!

I really hope they get Johnny Depp like they want.Also, the problem with Resident Evil, was the movie, unlike the game, would have 50,000 zombies on screen at a time, instead of like 1, or rarely 2. Also they completely changed the story. From what I have been reading about the SH movie is they seem to be emphasizing the fact that Silent Hill is awesome because of the creepy ambiance, not because you shoot crazy things. And also that it will be sticking very closely to the game. I think Konami saw how fans of Resident Evil were upset, and won't do that. Because upseting your fans doesnt get you more money.

This movie is definitely going to happen..I really hope they stick to the story..It would be really sweet if they went back to the story from the first one, that game was the greatest I loved the plot..I dont want another one of these damn movies where they make a whole new story that has nothing to do with the original, that is why all the video game movies made today suck horribly..

If done right, this movie will be the blockbuster hit of not just video game movies, but of all movies in the suspense-horror-mystery genre. I cant f-in wait..lol...but for now all i can do is pray it doesn't suck as bad as Resident Evil....

There are just a few horror movies out there whitch combines psychological elements that actually works as long as you're watching them correctly (alone, late at night, in the dark). And those are among others: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, both The Ring-movies, The Blair Witch Project and I have to say...That the beginning of the Resident Evil had a frightening atmosphere, reminded me a bit of Italien horror-classics.The most importmant thing in the creation of a good horror movie/game - is the storytelling, the way HOW you tell the art (games and movies is an art-form ya know). Take a look at the Silent Hill-games and The Blair Whitch Project for example - You have this creeping atmosphere where you always find yourself unsafe and afraid, you don't know what's out there, you don't know what you're dealing with. If you can't tell and identify the source of the creeps (the mystified sounds actually) - you'll get afraid, and that is satisfying - we don't wanna have the predictable stuff, we want something else, try something else.By the way, the key-word of making a terrifying and often psychological atmosphere - is silence! There should NOT be any "Hollywood-music" in the backgrounds, it kills the horror-experience (That's why The Blair Whitch Project works so efficiently). There should not be any music at all except under the "right" circumstances (look at Silent Hill - awesome music, brings the right mood). A great example of creating a positive frustration in horror is The Texas Chainsaw Massacre with its terrifying and intensing music. To make it short: "Hollywood music" eliminates the realism while no music or frustrating music makes it more realistic and frightening.

I'm 100% agree with Bleeding_Me.I have completed all the three SH games and when the only thing you can hear is the shoes the character is wearing. That's creepy. It gives you "the mood" for the game. And the unexpected in all the games always come in a quiet scene. You never know how and when you will meet a creature.BTW please stop those lame posts. It sucks!

I don't really think that a SH movie would need hot chicks in it to be a good movie. Sh, unlike RE, has a much better plot line and can pull you in much better than RE ever could. Plus in SH the characters are just ordinary people, who don't look like they've been working out and in the military for years. One way it will be better, it has ordinary people, not some super solider bullshit. Sh shouldn't need to rely on fire fights with huge ass monsters with even bigger guns or hot chicks that seem to be able to move quite well in tight clothing. One exmaple of why a SH movie would pwn a RE movie, it has a good plot therefore doesnt need "intense" action scenes. The only thing I think that could really ruin the Sh movie is is they made some toned up assswipe, such as vin diseal, the main character. Come to think of it, I've never seen a "fit" person on any SH games. I agree with juice that they should have massive trucl loads of gore and other "adult" themes. Hope they won't do the sme thing as thign as Alien vs Predator and make it PG-13. That would be the end right there. Metal bands would be a good idea, as long as it was blended in with some sick freaky MC/ambient noise deal. Like a blend of the SH1 soundtrack and Slipknot. By metal I don't mean wanna be bands like linkin park. The other day I saw a music video that had a linkin park song with SH1 cut scenes -.-, what a disgrace....but yea, they should at least incorperate one (at minimum) little kid(s) in trouble, 1 or more teenage person (if more than one, then one has to die a gruesome death in front of the other's eyes). You have make the audiance question whether or not what is happening is actually real, kinda like the anime Perfect Blue.Only, the thing i don't really like about konami is their monster design is getting kind of weak, they need to look like more than walking piles of flesh turned inside out. If the movie doesn't give you nightmares or deeper mental issues for at least a couple days then it wi

the music dude who did the SH games is doinn the music for the films and the people who make the game are helping the director of it to make it by desinging the monsters characters etc, also it might be a anime film, which i really dont want it to be, cos i cannt take anime seriously and it woudlnt be as scary as real people, i love the SH games, there my favourite games ever, and i am in the midst of completing the 4th one, but its too damn scary, the film shouldnt have hardly any guns and should just have melee like the wooden plank or the chainsaw it should not have any music in it, part from maybe one or 2 scenes, but should just be really quiet, and all u hear is the footsteps and the heavy breathing of the character and the odd screeching of a grotesque creature that scares the crap out of the person watching it, it should have a big star playing the main character, but no one with muscles, or a sexy woman, just some average looking person, i also heard that Johnny Depp MIGHT be playing the main character, but its no final yet, i also think it should follow the 2nd SH, as i think its got quite a good story, as a lot of films are like the plot form SH1 a father looking for his lost daughter, but SH2 has a better, creepier, darker plot to it, i cannt bloody wait for this film, but i hope its not a let down like the RE movieS, they really put me off Resident Evil, so i can only hope

no, no metal bands. silent hill is all about disturbing and creepy ambient music and sound effects. i dont know why people feel the need to have f**king killswitch engage or some other shit blasting in horror movies now, but it really takes away from the overall scare factor.

Silent Hill Movie Makes Sense

Mike........you are a f**king retard and you apparently don't know how a good movie is made. If you see a movie for the "hotties" then you are seriously a dumb f**k. If you want to see "hotties" go look at a magazine you superficial twat. People like you are the reason why shitty films still exist. You're probably one of those people that didn't like Jacabsons Ladder...just do us all a favor and stick to watching Baywatch you dolt. As to comment on the intelligent posts, from what I've heard the soundtrack is being done by the same person that did them in the SH games, and the main characters will be a mother and daughter.

Okay.The movie is going to be based on SH 1-2.It's being filmed in Brantford,Ontario,Canada(I live there,front page of newspaper)for some parts.They're using downtown for the creepy ghosttown.Yay.And don't worry,it's going to be good.

Silent Hill Movie Makes Sense

Please don't say there should be gore and a lot of blood, or even sexy women showing their skin. (Go get some porn for that, stupid!)I DON'T want an action movie.I would like to have something like The Ring (the american one), which was the most scary movie ever, IMO. And not because of the monsters tearing people apart. That's not scary. But it had a great atmosphere. Just like the SH game.

Silent Hill Movie Makes Sense

OK, first of all, all of you guys are fcking stupid shit eating ballsucking assraping motherfckin fckers who like to suck their dads small microp***s on the weekends for allowance, which is probably like 5 pesos or somthing.I think that the movie shuld have like 3 hot chicks who get raped by pyramid dildo, and lesbian nurse monsters.The main characters shud be Vin Deasel, JLo, Brittany Spears, Ashton Cutcher, Dave Chappel, Jenna Jameson, and somones ballsack with a happy face on it.Most of the movie shuld be just people getting raped by sick disgusting monsters and they suld say fck at least 2,000 times. There suld be tons of sick sexual gore with just loads of hot chicks with big tits.If tha prodacuers and direcater folloows my stuplnendus guidalines this movae shud be reallay gooododd.
