Celebrating ‘Silent Hill’, the Best Video Game Adaptation [Horror Queers Podcast]

The Useless Penis.

After spending time with a potentially homicidal governess in The Innocents, a confirmed homicidal pairing in Bride of Chucky and courting controversy with The Silence of the Lambs last week (seriously folks: listen to the episode before commenting!), Trace and I collected our friends Renee, Travis and Jean Paul from Pod Mortem for a visit to the quiet, foggy town of Silent Hill.

In director (and long-time game fan) Christophe Gans‘ Hollywood debut, concerned mother Rose (Radha Mitchell) escapes with her troubled daughter Sharon (Jodelle Ferland) to the mysterious town of Silent Hill. As Rose’s husband Chris (Sean Bean) eats up valuable screen time, Rose befriends lesbian-coded cop Cybil Bennett (Laurie Holden) and outcast Dahlia (Deborah Kara Unger) before running afoul of tyrant (and screenwriter Roger Avary creation) Cristabella (Alice Krige).

Eventually the town’s history of child abuse and religious zealotry unleashes a whole ton of death and dismemberment in what is arguably the best video game adaptation, albeit one that still feels a little too drawn out (blame the men!)

Episode 122 – Silent Hill (2006) feat. Pod Mortem

This week on the pod, keep an ear out for the air siren because we’re headed to Silent Hill (2006) for its 15th anniversary. Along for the ride are Renee, Travis and John Paul of Pod Mortem, who provide both game expertise and disdain for the presence of Sean Bean’s Chris (we love the actor, but why is he here?!)

Up for discussion: how director Christophe Gans scored the gig, how writer Roger Avary paid homage to AND overcomplicated the game’s plot and grievances about the 2+ hour runtime.

Plus: compliments for the production design and monster choreography, issues with the depiction of sexual assault (CW) and questions about founding a child sacrificing cult in a small town.


Cross out Silent Hill!

Coming up on Wednesday: We hit the road for some homoerotic vampire action with the aggressively sweaty The Forsaken!

P.S. Subscribe to our Patreon for tons of additional content! In April we’ve done minisodes on Sundance and SXSW, plus the Best Jump Scares. Our full-length Patreon episodes are video game-themed: we’re tackling Paul W.S. Anderson’s Monster Hunter and his 1995 Mortal Kombat film, plus a discussion of the new 2021 Mortal Kombat!

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
