I’ve been reading Anne’s Story, and I like it. Do you like the SH comics? Which is your favorite (if applicable)?
What's on your mind?
I think the SH OSTs absolutely slap. Mary Elizabeth Mcglynn is fantastic and Akira Yamaoka is super talented. Do you like them? Do you think they’re appreciated? Because they’re definitely important. Regardless of lyrics, nobody wants to play a game with awkward background music unrelated to the action.
Silent Hill has been one of the most iconic horror films of all time turning a the world in a person's eyes into a giant bloody puzzle that only they can solve called a "Nightmare". They can die just like they would in real life and unlike reality or the real world every... small... error... matters. So even if you leave your coffee in Midwitch Elementary, oh well fuck your coffee. The otherworld owns it now. The series has since spawned the most asked question: "What Is Silent Hill?" And another asked question "Why won't they make more films?"
So I am here today to answer those questions and explain.
What is the unknown dvd menu theme on Silent Hill 2006. I have a Silent Hill movie where the dvd menu has some sort of freightning harmony I just love. It sounds like "Nightmares of Home" and some other parts of music from the movie put together.
1. The dvd menu itself is orange like the otherworld with an unsettling hum and the side of pyramid head's helmet shows Rose Da Silva's, Anna's, and Cybil Bennett's faces on it except his helmet will appear at different times showing one of the three character's faces.
2. Then it will show the Midwitch hallway where Pyramid Head is seen grabbing his great knife as the otherworld fades away.
3. Then Anna's screams where Pyramid Head gabs her and walks up the stairs with her neck in his hand can be heard. Pyramid Head's growling can also be heard.
4. Then the part of the movie where Sharon looks into the waterfall and the camera looks and zooms down into Dark Alessa in the otherworld as she smiles. However only the zooming into Alessa part is showed. ( Note that 4 will only happen once. After 4, when the dvd menu plays again 4 doesn't happen unless you take the disc out and put it back in again ).The movie case was simply plastic and Sharon's mouth is missing. The characters on the front of the movie case go from left to right: Pyramid Head who is weilding his great knife with his right hand, two nurses, and two miners. Here's what the illustration for the movie case looks like both front and back:
The DVD disc has some of the monsters from the movie. This is the movie case and the dvd. The one I have. BTW this movie has an awesome Ultraviolet trailer so you guys should get Ultraviolet it's a really good movie.
so if any of you have this exact movie case and disc CAN YOU PLEASE TELL ME THE THEME SONG OF THE DVD MENU?
Silent Hill 3's opening theme "You're Not Here" is said to be a reference about Heather Mason's thoughts on her father's death, or James Sunderland's feelings for his wife Mary on SH2.
You're Not Here is a song featured in Silent Hill 3, it'd only make sense it was about the characters from SH3, and even Book of Lost Memories says "The opening theme is sung about the feelings involved with the loss of an important person. These feelings of loss become an important factor in what drives the heroine in the latter half of the game.", which points to Harry and Heather, how she feels these feelings of loss, but I feel like this is about Stanley.
I took my sweet time analyzing the lyrics and Stanley's notes to Heather, and this is what I've gathered so far. - You're Not Here lyrics (Stanley's notes to Heather)
Blue sky to forever
(I also like the rooftop.
It makes me want to fly.
You too )
The green grass blows in the wind, dancing
It would be a lot better sight with you with me
(I'll be patient, too, even though I long to hold you in these hands of mine.)
If you did not met me
I'd be fine on my own, baby
(It's all over.
Leonard despises me - because I made fun of it, saying it would come to this.
If it were not for your meddling, I would have been able to meet you in just a little while.
Then I could have taken you to my world. )
I never felt so lonely then you came along
(I was always thinking of you, here in this gloomy cell.
I never even knew your name or face until today.
But now I know.)
So now what should I do?
I'm strung out, addicted to you
My body aches, now that you're gone
My supply fell through
(I should not have let this place get
me, should never have gone crazy.
But it's superbly enjoyable to
drown in my love for you)
You gladly gave me everything you had and more
You craved my happiness
(You may not have realized your own true feelings.
But you sense them unconsciously.
And you're trying to get closer to me.)
When you made me feel joy it made you smile
(Oh, how I love you, Heather.
I want to give you my prized doll I made to commemorate our meeting, the start of this everlasting love.
Oh, I can already see your smiling face.)
Love was never meant to be such a crazy affair, no
And who has time for tears?
(The Organization has shut me up in here.
They need to break my will, to make me forget about all that.
But I'll stay sane even if they throw me in here with lunatics. )
I never thought I'd sit around and cry for your love,
I'm long for you, but you're so cruel.
Still, I want you, Heather.
Now stepping one foot outside my speculations, and onto.... more speculation, in the Otherworld Hospital Note is a memo found in Silent Hill: Homecoming in the Otherworld Alchemilla Hospital on the 3rd floor in Room 303. The note simply repeats "She's not here". That note is believed to be from Stanley to Heather, so I linked the content of this note, and the name of the song, and even another one of his notes, where he says "Isn't it a shame? I'm not there. Aren't you irritated?"
So, what do you guys think? Have you thought about this before?
The Silent Hill film franchise needs to return. Cybil needs to reappear as the main protagonist. Rose needs to go back to Silent Hill and be incharge of the Town.

That day has finally arrived! My debut Silent Hill novel is done in terms of writing. It has been one hell of a journey (pun intended), but I have finally reached the point where the novel has been concluded.
Now I enter the arduous task of editing. This means going through everything with a fine tooth comb, and not just in terms of grammar and spelling. I need to make sure there is consistency, firstly throughout my plot and sub-plots, and then with the future novels in this series. It can be very time-consuming, but necessary for the quality of the final product.
As you can see by the image on this post, I have designed the first concept design for the cover. While I am editing, I will be designing four other mock-up covers, followed by a poll on social media as to which one is preferred. The voted winning cover will be the one chosen to be published.
Amazon has approved the pre-order of the novel, so if you wish to have your copy available on launch day, head over to AMAZON to reserve it.
As for printed versions, at this stage I want to first focus on the e-book version of the novels before I establish a launch for the print versions. Expect press releases to hit worldwide on the release of the e-book while I prepare the print copies.
I will update you further as time goes by. Expected release date of the e-book: 31 October 2016. More information can be obtained from my BLOG
Last week I got my first exclusive interview for my upcoming Silent Hill novel. The interviewer is a writer for Video Game News Source and, more importantly, runs her own website on Silent Hill news and updates calledMy Silent Hill.
The interview took place late last week and was released to the world on Saturday. If you would like to read through the interview, click here.
As an update on the novel, there are six chapters left to write. We are nearing the final stages now, to be followed up by editing and then finally publishing. More news to come.
In love and grace

So it's finally happened! Someone took notice of my tweets and contacted me to have an interview done. Apparently the interviewer of Video Game News Source is a mega superfan of the Silent Hill franchise, which means I can expect some decent questions and a test of the potential excitement for my much anticipated upcoming novel, 'Silent Hill: Betrayal'.
It is also going to give me a chance to answer some questions I am sure are on many people's minds. I will update you on when the interview becomes available and where you will be able to read it.

This post may be a bit delayed compared to my Social Media links, but with my wife and kids falling ill I had to phase out of author mode for a bit to attend to their needs.
Be that as it may, here it is: Act 2 is complete! There is one Act left before the final showdown. Trevor needs to learn one more truth about betrayal before he meets the final enemy, who will offer him a chance at redemption. What no one knows is that there is an invisible player, someone with a greater scheme at mind. Forgiveness and redemption will come at a price that may be too expensive for Trevor to pay.
Act 3 marches on: the finale of 'Silent Hill: Betrayal' is upon us! Expect some SneakPeek sketches and reveals soon!

I have just made and released a video trailer of my upcoming Silent Hill novel. If you cannot view it below, please visit my blog celenicearth.wordpress.com
I just posted a new article on the top 7 things you should expect from my upcomin novel, but it is a bit too long to post here. Please see the article as per below if you want to know what to expect:
1. The novel will have sensitive material, such as violence, sexual connotations and religious overtones
2. It is an original story and not adapted from any of the game or film storylines
3. There are certain themes and items that will remain from the franchise
4. There will be puzzles and mysteries for the character to solve.
5. There will be hints of something bigger in the background that will be realised by book 5
6. Some easter eggs will be hidden in the story
7. The significance of The Order that fell away during Downpour is not so great in this novel as in future novels

In case you missed it, I released some sketches on Sunday via my blog , Twitter and Facebook. This was the next sneak peek into the "Silent Hill: Betrayal" novel, this time taking a look at some of the main weapons that can be found in Act 2.
I say 'some', since anything that can be found at hand can be used at a weapon, but of course the main ones are the featured. These can be seen as an upgrade of the weapons in Act 1, which can be seen the novel's portfolio,
So without further ado, please see the gallery for Act 2 Weapons:
Tomorrow, 16 June 2016, South Africa celebrates Youth Day, which means it is a public holiday for us. It also means for some of us that it is a long weekend ahead... and something wonderful this way comes.
I'm going to be spending quality time on writing "Silent Hill: Betrayal" further, among other things (such as precious family time). Trevor has just reached Alchemical Hospital, and is about to meet someone he never expected to find in Silent Hill. This location takes up the bulk of Act 2, and certain mysteries start to unravel and he gets a better understanding of what is happening in the town, and why he has been brought there.
I will also have the chance to develop the sketches for the next SneakPeak Sunday, which will feature the creatures from Act 1, and some more weapons for Act 2. I will also be doing some design concepts of the locations for the first two Acts, as well as some preliminary sketches on the characters so far. Finally, I will be releasing an adapted Halo of the Sun design, specifically catered for this novel.
So buckle your seatbelt and expect to get some goodies from me this Father's Day!

Following the permission I received by Konami and Ster-Kinekor Entertainment to write my own story in Silent Hill, with my own characters, creatures and weapons, I have begun writing "Silent Hill: Betrayal" which is set for release within the next few months.
I have many followers and readers following my epic fantasy trilogy, The Celenic Earth Chronicles, but I want to make sure I reach actual fans of Silent Hill. Only they will understand the true worth of what I am writing, and I would not want them to miss out on the free goodies when it is released with the first publication.
Please feel free to follow me on , or on twitter @Shadowolfd, as I am constantly updating followers with progress.
Please don't miss out. I want to share this story with you.
I got to ask, since both Claudia and Christabella were priestesses, couldn't the 'sister' part that Claudia said be because they are both priestesses? Almost like how nuns call each other sister?
Here is a video I found recently that was spread around the internet for a short while causing some spark & thoughts of an upcoming Silent Hill game (Downpour already be out at this point).
While I'm, of course, skeptical, I feel this video holds a slight bit of validity seeing as how we see cockroaches at the end of this video in very similar lighting and setting conditions as we see in P.T.
That said, I am not sure how far Silent Hills was in it's life cycle as the public wasn't made aware of this new title until a few days after P.T. was released and discovered as being a means of announcing Silent Hills and Hideo Kojima's involvement... Regardless, this was just something that really caught my attention and I've seen no one else make any connections with this older video since P.T... Let me know what you all think!
