Silent Hills Concept Trailer Will Have You Blanking Your Pants All Over Again

As if the “Playable Teaser” posted for Silent Hills last month wasn’t scary enough, the team has provided another conceptual preview – this time it’s a video.

I remember watching David Lynch’s Eraserhead and thinking, “David Lynch took a camera into someone’s head and filmed their nightmare.” As I watch and rewatch this trailer, I get the same feeling.

Silent Hill‘s trademark grime and dampness, the body horror, and the disjointed feeling of the navigation all give the sequence an uncomfortable otherworldly feeling that reminds me of some of my weirdest dreams.

Like P.T., this trailer is not indicative of the final game but rather of the tone and look they’re going for. It’s clear that P.T. wasn’t just a one-time fluke – the people behind Silent Hills are onto something.
