So recently I played the "Born from a Wish" scenario from SH2, and I noticed that in there we find a book called "Lost Memories", this version is different from the one seen in the normal scenario and even mentions Xuchilbara. Also mentioned in the memo we have:
Words of blood = crimson ceremony, drops of mist = white chrism, the vessel of the night = obsidian goblet
With this said, we can assume that the deity summoned by James in the Rebirth ending is Xulchibara, the red god, right? So if the red god is one that has control over the passage of life and death, could the red god be Valtiel? We see him tu…Read more >
Wow, hey guys, it's been awhile. I just love coming back to this wiki.Read more >
Morning, Afternoon, Evening... (That's another day gone)
I think it's best just to show these two little articles first:
- Article 1
- Article 2
Speculation, speculation, speculation. On article one there is only 144 words on non-speculative information and 529 words on speculation and theories. On article two there is only 145 words on non-speculative information and 431 words on speculation and theories.
These are two extremes of something that is present on this wiki, and from my opinion, I think we should get rid of once and for all..
Don't get me wrong, I love speculating and theorizing about Silent Hill and it pretty much dominates my Silent Hill time, but I'm fed up of scrawling through pages and page of utter crap to…

Thanks for your patience while I've been gone. I recently spoke to Alessa about how I'm going to be pretty busy these days. I have a new (awesome and kickass) job doing QA up at Bungie, so it's made free time very difficult. I do still visit though and I'll try and manage news and other bits of backend admin-y stuff. Frankly that's my favorite job here anyway.
I'll be around though.Read more >
Now on many occasions, I've seen the Silent Hill series, most specifically the pilot installment, be called the "true" game if you want a digital trip through Hell. And I couldn't agree more, honestly. Of course fear is a matter of opinion, but there are some universal happenings that instinctually usher us into an apprehensive state.
The thing I love most about this series is that it's not some gore or jump-scare oriented game meant to just give you a quick jump, like the indies Slenderman or what I've seen of Pesadelo. It's rooted in the desire of burrowing into your psyche and making you question your very own real world. I've said it so many times but I'll say it again... the series is just such a brobdingnagian, complex metaphor for ou…

Hey all. I am currently in an English course that encompasses an ISU (independent study unit) and I have convinced my teacher to allow me to do the study on the novelization. I'll be using Ducky's translation, as well as the game itself. I know this isn't ground breaking news from Konami, but it is very exciting to me. Any thoughts or suggestions you guys have would be welcome. Thanks :)Read more >
Self-explanatory. We'll be seeing a video about how the Psych Profile works in Shattered Memories. Totally dope. Thanks Climax for releasing publicly this material. It makes life as an editor a lot easier when you have access to renders, artwork, information, etc.Read more >
So it's apparent that not many people like Homecoming, be it for the combat, the characters, or even the story. Me personally, I don't mind it. The characters are okay, the story's quite interesting in my opinion, and as for the combat, I haven't actually played the game myself, but I can see how some people would have difficulty with it.
Now, I've done a lot of thinking about how they could have made the game better, and through this head canon of mine I've really grown to love my version of the story. I'm not denying the canon, I'd never do that. I'm simply saying, "What if?"
So for those who don't know, Elle was originally supposed to be Laura grown up, but they changed it because Elle has a biological mother in the game whereas Laura was…Read more >
Yes, this is obviously an April's Fools Joke, please don't be offended. :)
OMG, this is just so awesome!
So yesterday morning on Konami's site, this digital press release pamphlet was shown. It's titled Silent Hill HD Collection Remaster Collection, which is a touch-up of the recent infamous Silent Hill HD Collection, which was released a year ago.
And I'm just sitting here so excited! :D
Finally, I'll no longer have to drag out my dusty non-HD PS2s, or worry about tweaking the PC versions.
This makes me a very happy Silent Hill fan! I CAN'T WAIT.Read more >

Ah, thought it'd be an interesting subject to discuss. :D I found it suitable as a blog in opposition to a forum discussion, seeing as I doubt this will launch into a serious conversation regarding the Hill or anything. Probably just a short-lived blog among us crazed fans, ha ha. But if any of the admins feel it doesn't truly fit blog criteria or anything of the sort don't hesitate to do your thing. (:
I just wanted to see which other fans out there collected Silent Hill memorabilia. :D Talk briefly about our collections, what we still wish for, all that good stuff... and perhaps even introduce other fans to SH m…

I've heard a lot of people bitch, whine, and moan about Silent Hill: Downpour and its graphical issues. I've learned to work with the game instead of against it, and found that I had little to no issues while playing. I thought this could be helpful information for any players who had issues, or new players who are thinking of buying it and maybe have concerns after hearing all the complaints. Keep in mind: I played Downpour on the PS3, but I hope these methods will help 360 players as well.
"But Jo, we shouldn't NEED a player's guide! The game shouldn't have any issues to begin with!" That's true, but every game that is developed is bound to have bugs. Hell, have you ever tried pouring Aglaophotis on a Larval Stalker in Lakeside Amusement Park?…Read more >
As you know, there's a new Silent Hill comic coming out soon by Tristan T-rex Jones who also has done Ghost Busters comics; I was on his Facebook account and left a message talking about trying to crossover Silent Hill with Ghost Busters. He said that he could pitch the idea to IDW but us the fans have to show them that we want it and we want it made by him. I want to see if we can try and rally up enough people to get this to happen!
I also want to know what other crossovers you guys would want to see happen if you could. Aside from a Ghost Busters crossover, I'd like to see an Evil Dead crossover or have Fredy Couger running around Silent Hill haunting past protagonists from the original Nightmare on Elm Streets. What would you like to se…Read more >
Whooohoo! So lately, three admins of the Silent Hill wikia were interviewed for Silent Hill's Historical Society's Voices in the Static podcast!
AlessaGillespie, AlexShepherd and Canieattacos (I) were more than thrilled to be apart of the podcast. Since it was about the Silent Hill wiki and our future projects, I thought I should share the link with those of you who recently joined our wikia or those who haven't yet heard about the exciting adventures that we've recently been in. Slowly we're coming out of our wikia shell and being apart of more cool things! So without any further hesitation, here's the link:

Silent Hill: Revelation's original script was recently posted online, and oh boy, is it ever a doozy. If you like the first film a lot, I would recommend that you not read this, because it will piss you off. The retcons are absolutely astounding, and are everywhere, especially in the flashback sequences. The most notable of these is that the script claims Alessa was burned in her own home, and that she created the Otherworld during the burning by turning her eyes black and taking control of the fire. There are several other retcons, including Claudia being the leader of the Order when Alessa was young, Dahlia knowing the Order wanted to perform a ritual on Alessa to impregnate her with their god, Sharon being a baby stolen from its parents …Read more >

I've noticed several people on the wiki as of late that seem to be unaware of our rules pertaining to images and forums/blogs. Because of this, the wiki is seeing a good deal of content that does not belong here.
Forums and blogs are veering into off-topic chatting repeatedly, which is not allowed. It's one thing if a somewhat off-topic discussion results in an intelligent conversation about important aspects of the series. It's quite another if the discussion turns to responses that obviously belong in a chat room, such as witty banter that has nothing to do with the topic of the thread/blog and goofing around. For instance, the "Which silent hill character will you be?" thread has not been on-topic for quite some time, and is now just ran…Read more >
An obscure topic amongst Silent Hill fan bases is how the Otherworld comes in many different ways. I've always found the Otherworld transitions of Silent Hill, and how they occur, to be some of the most fascinating and haunting moments.
In Silent Hill 3, Heather would recieve a headache, usually followed by blood/veins soaking the walls and converting it to the Otherworld.
In Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, an ice would spread over and incase everything in a very thick layer of frosty hell.
In Silent Hill: Origins, a mirror would bring about static and transport Travis to the other side.
In the Silent Hill films, a siren would signal the world going dark, followed by the world peeling and melting away in a spectacular display of visual effect…Read more >
(...from a fan perspective).
Well, 2013 marks the beginning of a fresh start, and it's February, so I thought now would be a good time to reflect on the series, for those of you fans who care. The series' current producer has left, and transferred to another company that will provide him with massive amounts of love, plushies and flame shields.
I guess a lot of you are thinking what's in store for the series now. I don't know, it's not like me or this site are actually affiliated with Konami Burger or anything. Depends how hardcore of a fan you are. However, I know a lot of fans go to the wiki for Silent Hill news and information, so here's a list of things to possibly look forward to in the future.

Despite what has been circulating around the 'net (originating from YouTube, but I do not want to point fingers at anyone), I want to make it clear that there is no proof that Alessa's powers interacted with the basement boiler which caused the explosion. It's an alternative fan theory, and is not by any means, factual.
Let's look at the Fire Article, which says,
"Investigations show source as basement of Gillespie home. Blaze now believed caused by malfunction of antiquated boiler."
The article does not state the boiler was the cause, only that it's believed to be the cause. The purpose of this article is probably there to show what the public believed. The Silent Hill Guidebook goes further into this, stating that a fake corpse was left behind …Read more >

What monsters would you face?
Would you be punished for something?
What's the moral at the end?
What fears you have, will haunt you?
And if you don't want to write it down, just think about it, make your walk in Silent Hill a lot easier! ("...It is important to travel lightly in that world. He who carries too heavy a burden will regret it...") :-D By the way where is that memo in Silent Hill 4: The Room Memos ?
My Silent Hill: I will have a protagonist monster called Evilval because i'm afraid what kind of a person would i be if i wasn't a good person (at least i think i am). Do we really know ourselves, or do we find out about us only when something bad happens and we have to make a decision? I hope …

Wow, guys. It's finally happened.
So if any of you remember, I proposed a streaming party to celebrate a while ago, and it seems like everybody was pretty enthusiastic about it! So that settles it - we'll have an online party on Twitch TV where we play the Silent Hill games and have everyone join in with commentary. Like, bring as many people as possible! But we have to choose a date and time, and schedule, and what we're going to do. I'd give about a week, so maybe

As a favor to me, could everyone please don't erase dead links. Everyday, I go through the Wanted Pages category and add new pages, but if the links to the needed pages are removed, how will I know what to make? And not only does it affect me, but also anyone else who goes to Wanted Pages with the intention of making necessary pages that the wiki is lacking. So please don't erase those links unless the page name has changed, or the page is definitely never going to be made. Thanks! :)Read more >
I think an area should be added to the main page where it suggests a particular article that needs help. A really good example would be the actor / developer / voice actor articles, which aren't always easy to find information for. Some casual visitors may not even know we have these articles, yet alone that the pages need help. Who knows, maybe someone will know how to dig up obscure information that isn't otherwise easily found. What do you guys think?
Also, we need a female version of the No image.jpg link. It looks kind of weird on pages for females. :DRead more >
Just like the real Alessa,Dark alessa likely to share the same power,but Dark Alessa seems like own her own individual ability that don't owned by the real Alessa
Here is the information Im able to analize from them
- Possesion : When Dark Alessa hug Rose in the hospital,she able to merge with her,and when Christabella stab Rose,she spilled "black blood" that seems like the essence of Dark Alessa
- Able to appear and dissapear anytime : Dark Alessa use this ability to run through Silent hill and lure Rose to certain places. In the Hospital room where Alessa gillespie take rest,Dark Alessa just appear near The red nurse (Lisa Garland),even though Rose already check that corner before. Dark Alessa clearly show this ability when confronting Heather …

Hello everyone! It seems that we hardly have anybody coming to our wiki anymore, but fear not. . .I have another "once every 5 months question" blog! Hurray! So this month's blog question is. . ."What's your favorite ending?"
I know, it seems like every ending in Silent Hill is either super amazing because it brings surprise and shock to our story line or we're just really glad that the game is over. Either way, we all have that one special ending that brings us some good ole memories back. Am I right?
For starters, my favorite ending would probably have to be the good ending where Heather plays a joke on Douglas. (A good joke too). I mean, who expected that from Heather? We play as her through the whole game and all of a sudden she's a rea…Read more >
It's pretty self-explanatory. ~_~
There's links to the Forum on the front page and wiki header.
Take note that these do not replace the admin forum, nor are they meant for improving a single article, which talk pages are for. Hopefully you'll like the sleeker look.Read more >
So I was thinking... Characters should have their own quotes page, which would then go into a Quotes category that was divided between games. That way, if people want to see what characters have quotes, they can just go through the category. For example, a James Sunderland quotes page would go in both a Quotes category and a Silent Hill 2 Quotes category. I've been doing this same thing on the Underworld wiki, and it's been working splendidly. Thoughts?Read more >
Anyone else besides me heard about this? There's a new comic book by Past Life's Tom Waltz in development that will focus on Anne's past life, including the "sick things" she did. We need a page for this.

So it's come to my attention that this wiki has nearly attained two-thousand pages! (It's at 1,977 as I write this.) Wow! That's a lot of pages! So we should reach the big 2,000 in a week or so!
On behalf of my fellow admins, I'd really like to thank all the editors on here. You guys rock! None of this would have been possible without you. Our wiki is just awesome. I'm really proud of it :)
So I was thinking that once we reach 2,000, we could have a streaming party or something to celebrate. Like, on Twitch/Justin TV, we have a marathon where we play Silent Hill 1 - 4 all the way through while streaming it. Anyone could join in the stream, and we can open up Skype so we can add some people's voices to the stream. Or we could play other games. …Read more >

If you are interested in helping out with the BoM pages, the site below has almost every memo/plot detail necessary for furthur editing.

Thanks for reading, the sites called "Silent Hill Memories."

Hey!! :D So, I just found out that the Book of Memories related things are being worked on. A lot of them lack images, and some of them have some bad-quality ones.
I thought it would be a great idea to add to the wiki LOTS of screenshots from MY playthrough!!! :D
Just some things I'd like to note:
1. I'm going to add all of the Monsters, Artifacts, Bosses (Guardians), Characters, Weapons, Rooms and even some easter-eggs, but mind you, they are not all of the ones that are in the game, I've missed some of them (you'll see what I've missed in the screenshots or the names i put to the images), but I'll upload their images as soon as I find them.
2. A lot of you know it already: I LOVE CLAUDIA!!!! (Don't blame me, blame the one that made me love he…Read more >
Hey, i wanted to check with other users on the wiki before changing anythng on multiple pages, but i noticed that the ending format for each Silent Hill entry is different, and i wanted to check with whomever before modifying them to a single format. I feel that the best setup would include each "edning" bullet-pointed, under a Heading 3 "Endings" title located under the Heading 3 "Plot," seeing as how the endings are technically a part of the plot. If anyone thinks this isn't appropriate then i obviously won't change the pages. Thanks!
Apologies if a blog isn't the right place to put this, but I wasn't sure where else i should.Read more >
There's a bit of a disagreement over whether an article should be created for Brookhaven Asylum, so I thought I'd ask what others think. Alex feels that the asylum may be a part of Brookhaven Hospital, and so belongs on that page. I think it's a completely separate building, and deserves its own article.
- The professional-looking sign out front suggests it's a different facility.
- The lack of its mention on the map of Brookhaven Hospital in the first movie.
- The fact that it seems to be a safe area for the cultists to dump their insane, whereas the hospital was obviously not safe due to Alessa's presence there.
- Alessa could have moved since the first movie.
- Alessa might have altered the hospital into an asylum.
- The presence of a movie version of t…

Hey fellow wikians, i've been thinking lately about one of the endings in Silent Hill:Downpour that suggests that when someone dies in Silent Hill's Otherworld, their corporeal bodies can be found in reality.
In the Forgiveness ending when Anne is radioed by the police, the authorities claim that they have found and accounted for all of the prisoners involved in the bus crash. We all know that Sanchez dies early on in the game when he is killed by a Screamer. So if it holds true that Sanchez did in fact die, and that all of the prisoners are discovered, that would mean that the police located his body, which seems extremely unlikely seeing as how most characters lost in Silent Hill disappear if they do not make it out alive, as their physical…Read more >
Revelation screwed up the timeline and story of the first movie something wicked, and now we need to change pages to deal with that. The first movie took place in 2004, with the Great Fire occurring in November of 1974. Sharon is 9 years old (confirmed by the official novelization and Chris's comments to Sister Margaret) when the movie takes place, meaning she was created in 1995, and Alessa has a rough birthdate of 1965.
However, Bassett has stated that Revelation takes place 6 years after the first movie, which would make Sharon 15, not 17/18. Going by Bassett's statements and the timeline of the first movie, Revelation would take place in 2010. Judging by Sharon's age, it would be 2012/2013. Even stranger, the official website for Revel…Read more >
MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD
I have way too much to say about this movie and there's no way I can say it all in one blog post. I'll do so in two or three parts, and this is the first.
Well, first of all, the visuals are fantastic. For the most part, the place really does LOOK like Silent Hill. Heather looks like she jumped right out of the game. But then it got cold so she put on a warmer shirt. The nurses look great too, though that scene with them and Vincent was just silly. The use of fire in the carousel scene beautifully done. And when Pyramid Head made his appearance, it really did look and sound like it would, had he been in your presence.
I generally dislike 3D as a form of enhancing the cinematic experience, but you have to agree that here, …

Silent Hill: Revelation was released today, and unfortunately for fans of the video game, the reviews have been less than favorable. In fact, it seems that every critic who reviewed the film (of which there were almost zero "famous critics") mentioned the fact that the movie may be appealing to fans of the video games, but for them, as non-gamers, it was terrible.
To make things worse, a lot of these reviews question why a sequel was made in the first place, as if nobody desired it. Also, Adelaide Clemens isn't exactly getting praised for her performance, which is worrisome for the upcoming Great Gatsby movie, in which she also appears. At least fans of both the Silent Hill games and Game of Thrones should enjoy the recognizable game charac…Read more >
On October 26th, the second Silent Hill film will release to theaters. Entitled Silent Hill: Revelation, the movie stars Adelaide Clemens, Sean Bean, and Kit Harington. Directed by Michael J Bassett and co-written by Martin Solibakke and Michael J Basset, Sileent Hill: Relevation 3D pulls the story and characters of Silent Hill 3 to the big screen.
Similar to the first Silent Hill movie, there will be some tweaks to the approach of story. What elements from Silent Hill 3 were borrowed and adapted in this new movie? Quite a few, and it seems the movie itself follows the game's plot and synoposis rather closely. What do you think of this movie adaptation? Is there any alterations or modifications to the plot that you are concerned over?

Hi everybody as some of you know, Silent Hill: Book of Memories has been released so we need to start adding content to the Wiki. This blog will serve as a progress tracker of all the new content that we know of.
Below is a list of all this content that has been added to Wiki, included content that needs more info or adding to the wiki.
We have a couple of resources which may help you in adding/improving the Book of Memories content.

So Silent Hill 4: The Room has apparently been released in Japan on the PSN store, taking up nearly 4gb on the HDD! I'm going to get this tonight (probably) and test it out. It's a direct port of the PS2 version I believe.. so it's not a HD remake (not like that would be a good idea anyhow, considering the mess that was the HD Collection), but it's nice to see this game get a bit more love for once!

What are your predictions for Silent Hill: Revelation? Here are a few of mine, but I know I'm not nearly as familiar with the franchise as most of you are. Comment below with your predictions, or with why mine are lame. lol
- We'll see more content related to the first Silent Hill film than from Silent Hill 3 the game
- At least one character will be introduced who isn’t in either one
- Valtiel will make an appearance - having not been replaced by Pyramid Head.
I've noticed that we have several music pages, and I think a template (or templates) should be created to tie the pages together, sort of like the SHContent templates. I think it would make navigating between all the music pages easier. What do you guys think?Read more >

Hi all. I thought I'd finally create a blog on here, and considering I just watched TwinPerfect's rather(extremely) lengthy analysis of Silent Hill: HD Collection, I figured I'd write about that. Now, a couple quick things. One, if this blog is breaking any rules, I am sorry to whichever admin I offend,(as sorry as I ever am, which is not a lot) and I will attempt to rectify the errors if I am informed of them and if the admin will kindly explain why it is wrong and what should be done about it. Also, even though this is talking about TwinPerfect, who are notorious for their arrogance, please, let's all be mature and respectful.
