Not one for the kiddywinkies. Genuinely spooky.
Fairgrounds are bright, happy places, filled with childrens laughter, right? Not in Silent Hill. Here torchlight throws eerie shadows off demented horses on the carousel and the grunts of bloated, eyeless monsters grow ever closer.
The third in Konamis spectacular horror series dumps new character Heather on the edge of the towns amusement park where, in one of the games many highlights, shes forced to creep past wax-figure tableaux in the Haunted Mansion. For Silent Hill survivors, the new game offers a touch more action (weapons now stretch from switchblade to sub-machine gun) and a
few more clues to the towns mystery as new areas are explored. What hasnt changed is the fact that this misty, terrifying landscape is raised to video game genius-level with its atmospheric sound.
Trust us, you wont see or hear anything more frightening on the big or small screen this year.
