Silent Hill (2006): 22 References To The Game Series From The Movie

After fan speculation about a Kojima Productions tweet connecting to Silent Hills, Meg revisited the movie Silent Hill (2006) and found that it is packed with Easter eggs and references to the survival horror game series.

It's been kind of tough out there to be a Silent Hill fan these past few years after the unceremonious cancelation of Hideo Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro's Silent Hills project back in 2015. Not much was known about the project to begin with, but the release of the celebrated demo, P.T., had survival horror fans champing at the bit--and with good reason. The last official Silent Hill game, Downpour, came all the way back in 2012, so the wait has been--for lack of a better word--pretty killer.

But all hope may not be lost. Sure, we may all be a little desperate, but a recent tweet by Kojima Productions has reignited the fires of speculation in our hearts and minds for the potential of a future Silent Hill game (or at least a survival horror game in the vein of P.T., since Silent Hill is a Konami property and Kojima's split with the company didn't seem particularly amicable). Is it a lot to work from? Absolutely not. Will we get our hopes up anyway despite the inherent risk of having them dashed all over again? Unfortunately, yes.

Now all that's left to do is wait with our eyes peeled for any more details that may slip out--and what could be a better way to kill time than to revisit the weird, kind-of-sort-of wonderful world of the Silent Hill movie from back in 2006. Love it or hate it, it managed to cram as many references to the game series as possible into a bite-sized, two-hour-long package. And, in an effort to keep ourselves from falling too deep into the speculative rabbit hole, we've revisited the movie and catalogued them all.
