Pyramid head is not a guy in a helmet. That is his head. It does not come off and there is no misunderstood animu bishie underneath and sure as hell no “Homecoming” characters underneath.
Love him the way he is!
You know, because of the heavily psychological themes in Silent Hill, the idea that it looks different to each individual…nothing has scared me more in the ENTIRE series than that ONE line from Vincent.
That was the moment I went, “oh, SHIT.”
It calls to mind so many different ideas.
What does Silent Hill look like to him?
What does Silent Hill ACTUALLY look like?
What are we actually fighting?
What if we’re killing PEOPLE?
What if the monsters aren’t real, and we’re going around slaughtering real people? Maybe even other people trapped in Silent Hill just like us? What if they attack us because WE look like the monsters to them?
What if we’re the real monster.
<SPOILER ALERT> (Just in case)
If I recall what the director of the first Silent Hill movie said, he mentioned something about how all the Silent Hill monsters were once people, but because they were all trapped in Alessa’s nightmare world, they all ceased to be human and became tortured monsters, constantly suffering through a vengeful girl’s nightmare, Even Pyramid Head is in a constant state of suffering.
Using that theory, you basically ARE killing people throughout the game. Or at least they USED to be human.
Or perhaps everyone in Silent Hill is so accustomed to seeing monsters all the time that they’ve long forgotten what the rest of the world looks like.
IDK, but I do love Silent Hill theories.
im pretty sure this is somewhere on tumblr already but im too lazy to look
pyramid head in heels is realy kawaii ok
I think it’s time I tried watching the new Silent Hill movie
This is a total nightblog that I’m gonna let rest on my queue for a while, but…
MAN do I feel terrible for people who’ve had to make the Silent Hill movies.
From what I gather, the Silent Hill fandom can be RUTHLESS when it comes to preserving the games.
Okay, we get it, nothing will ever be as good as SH 2 and 3. No need to get all butthurt over everything that came after it.
I personally like the first Silent Hill movie. Was it great? No. Was it 100% true to the games? Of course not. But I can appreciate the director who played the game and wanted to take a stab at making a movie out of it. Plus, I like the aesthetics of it, even if the plot and the flow was a bit rocky. I commend them for trying something I wouldn’t even TOUCH because I’d be too afraid of the backlash of “how dare you tamper with MY precious game!”
It’s not your game, you didn’t create it.
Does it suck when they have to change some of their masterminds behind what made the first Silent Hills great? (For example: Akira Yamaoka is no longer writing music for the games.) Yes, it does suck. But that doesn’t automatically make Daniel Licht a bad composer, it just means he’s DIFFERENT than Yamaoka. Sometimes the changes they make COULD be for the better. Sometimes not. The point is not to judge before you hear Licht’s soundtrack.
But let’s face it: movies based off video games are NEVER great. How many can you name that have ever been beyond “decent”? You could probably count them on one hand. It’s an unforgiving and brutal market.
It’s HARD writing for games translated to the big screen. You’re basically having to write for an audience where half of them HAVE played the games, and the other half haven’t, so you have to explain enough for the latter, but still make it engaging for the former. It’s a hard balance.
Is it basically a cash cow? In a way, yes. Though very few movies these days actually make their money back beyond the big box office hits, and I HIGHLY doubt it’ll be a box office hit. That’s why all the gratuitous gore, monsters, and Pyramid Head: because it sells and the fans demand it (and yet some still whine when they DO include PH, WTF?).
As long as they’re able to shoehorn PH in better than they did the last movie and keep him truer to his character, I will be one happy camper.
Aw, heck, who am I kidding? I could never hate Pyramid Head.
Most are going for the fact that it’s Silent Hill. Some just love a good horror movie/gore fest.
For those who will never love anything beyond SH 3, you still have the games. Play them to your hearts’ content and let us newer fans have our fun.
Okay, just needed to get that out. Off to my next adventure! *Puts on cape and flies away*
