I'm trying to say, I think that was the intention. It's not actually supposed to be a monster along the lines of, say, a nurse. Kind of like that figure you see in Pyramid Head's hand in that one pic - it's not actually a monster but a disfigured human - althought not the kind you'd want to run into during a stroll down the block.

In Silent Hill 3 there were "creatures" crawling inside of the walls during the final stages in the Church. They weren't really monsters - they seemed to be more like humans who had given themselves to the "order of God". You didn't fight them, and they couldn't attack you.

These human-like "monsters" strike me the same way. They're not actually monsters, they're humans who have willfully given themselves or have been unwillfully taken.

Sure that's a monster and not just some "scenery victim"?
Looks more like the latter to me.

I was speaking idiomatically.

What we now call "the janitor" looks to me like it's part of the scenery rather than a monster. It looks more like one of the random discarded and mutilated bodies...
Plus it's on a poster. oô*

Yeah, I think that's the point you're trying to make. It isn't some monster that goes and attacks Rose, but rather a tortured soul who's writhing around in the background (like say, this woman that Valtiel is smacking against the wall in SH3). If that's the case, then the Janitor works. Gans called it a monster, though, didn't he? Hmm.

Got me there galen. The ghosts are connected to the SH4 storyline, but the movie itself seems to be weaved with SH1 and SH2 elements so maybe that's why I thought the designs didn't really fit.

How ya doing, buddy?

Silent Hill 4 is as much Silent Hill as Alien Resurrection is an Alien movie.
Meaning it's more an "inspired by..." thing. Not the real thing.

This thing is sticky, and I don't like it. I don't appreciate it.

EGM: Any vocal tracks for the film?
AY: There may be some vocal tracks, but I don't want them to interfere with the atmosphere of the film--instrumental score provides a better balance.
EGM as Electronic Gaming Monthly?? And they had a fool ask a question like that... Do they hire people who actually know about games or just random morons? The only type of vocal track remotely allowed for a Silent Hill movie would be some sort of chant.

Uhh... what's wrong with the question; a lot of people want to know if Mary McGlynn and/or Joe Romersa are doing vocal themes.

Hm, not quite, but I know what you mean.
While Ressurection was intended to be the Alien3 sequel from the get-go (how much it succeeded at that is a different story, I found it to be very entertaining still but not quite as inspiring as the other movies), The Room was originally intended to start a new franchise with no ties to Silent Hill whatsoever. But some shady executive had to play it save as ever so often...

His helmet is tilted. Is his head turned or is it foreshadowing that we'll see his helmet come off?

Christophe updated again.

He has a couple of pretty interesting things to say about the 'Janitor' creature, as well as the film's influence of SH4.

From what I'm reading in that diary, there is a lot of respect for the original material, along with tight supervision from the initial creators. Now I'm really looking forward to this one.

Spoiler:
And that bit about the Janitor thing "deserving" to become a monster sounds especially true to the crime & punishment notion of the games.

Kudos to the creature designer, but why oh why do they have to be "spoiled" away on the posters?
OK. Most SH fans know what Mr. Head looks like... But still... oô*

Agreed, that's pretty lame. That poster featured in the movie's Wikipedia article is rather explicit as well, but also pretty stylish and I think that's as much as they should have given away beforehand. Remember P-Head's 1st entrance in the game? I was terrified, not just because of what it was doing but that otherworldy design gave the whole experience an immense boost. Why leave the audience time to let it sink in even before the lights go out in the cinema?

He can turn his head?? Does that mean the hemlet might come off? His stomach looks kinda disgusting so his face would be disgusting too.

Jam it back in, in the dark.

Er...
Helmet? What helmet? This CREATURES name is Pyramid Head for a reason.

I never thought there might be anything under that thing. This is its form. He won't take it off when his shift is over or something.

Is it void in that metal head? Mucus, guts, eyeballs, something has gotta be in there. I think it's deformed head under that "helmet".

It would be even more insanely terrifying if there was nothing in there, now wouldn't it?
At least that's what I think. These things defy our reality. They don't need eyes or ears or guts or mucus. That's what makes them so sickly diffrent and terrifying. If Mr. Head suddenly pulled a Vader... no... That wouldn't fit.
