Pyramid Head Arrives in ‘Return to Silent Hill’

by Rob Caprilozzi

“In my restless dreams, I see that town. Silent Hill. You promised me you’d take me there again someday.
But you never did. Well, I’m alone there now…In our ‘special place’…Waiting for you…”

No one ever visits Silent Hill anymore…and for good reason. Variety has revealed the first look at Pyramid Head, which can be seen below, in the upcoming Return to Silent Hill movie, which is previewing at the Cannes Film Festival. Christophe Gans, who also directed Silent Hill in 2006, returns to direct a script he co-wrote with William Josef Schneider and Sandra Vo-Anh.

Jeremy Irvine stars in the film as James, a man broken after his relationship with the love of his life, Mary (Hannah Emily Anderson), ends. The official synopsis of the film is “when a mysterious letter from her calls him back to Silent Hill, he finds a once-recognizable town transformed by an unknown evil. While James desperately searches for Mary, he encounters terrifying creatures and begins to unravel the mystery of what happened to the town. But as he descends deeper into the darkness the secrets he uncovers lead to a horrifying truth, and James finds himself struggling to hold on long enough to save his one true love.”

Return to Silent Hill is based on the video game Silent Hill 2 which was published on September 25, 2001 by Konami and released for PlayStation 2, Xbox and Microsoft Windows. The game sold over one million copies in the month of its release in North America, Japan and Europe, with the most units sold in North America. It is considered one of the greatest horror games ever released.
