Scary nurses sought for Japanese <i>Silent Hill</i> premiere

Film's release to be heralded by 50 cosplayers taking a morning stagger to the movie theater, handing out flyers along the way.


According to ITmedia, 50 cosplay fans are being sought to assist in a promotional event for the Japan premiere of the film Silent Hill. The idea is to get 50 "Dark Nurses" to shuffle and stagger from a location near Tokyo's Ginza Station to the Marion theater complex on the morning of July 8. There they will greet customers--presumably by gurgling hideously and limping toward them with rusty scalpels--and hand out flyers. There is no monetary compensation for providing this service, but volunteers will get to keep their Dark Nurse threads and be given other memorabilia related to the film.
