Return to Silent Hill

In the new featurette, Christophe Gans spoke about the emotional layers of horror in the story, which is more disturbing and unsettling. He said he considers the first film “an epic journey of horror,” whereas Return to Silent Hill is “much more like a deep dive into psychological horror.”

The director also confirmed the return of series composer Akira Yamaoka for the film’s soundtrack. Gans spoke about retaining the spirit of the game and staying true to Yamaoka’s work, saying:

Yes, Akira Yamaoka is on this film. That’s very important for me, you know. Because I’m working on HIS creation. I never forgot that. It’s exactly like adapting a great book. It’s important to show respect and humility into his process.

Pyramid Head

Fan-favorite villain Pyramid Head from the film was recently revealed at the Cannes Film Festival a few weeks ago, where it was being previewed.

Unfortunately, no release date was announced; instead, we only got a “Coming Soon” title card at the end of the featurette. Stay tuned here for more updates and announcements as they happen.
