You know, because of the heavily psychological themes in Silent Hill, the idea that it looks different to each individual…nothing has scared me more in the ENTIRE series than that ONE line from Vincent.
That was the moment I went, “oh, SHIT.”
It calls to mind so many different ideas.
What does Silent Hill look like to him?
What does Silent Hill ACTUALLY look like?
What are we actually fighting?
What if we’re killing PEOPLE?
What if the monsters aren’t real, and we’re going around slaughtering real people? Maybe even other people trapped in Silent Hill just like us? What if they attack us because WE look like the monsters to them?
What if we’re the real monster.
