Silent Hill started as a Japanese video game in 1999. This video game was very popular with horror fans at home and abroad, resulting in game after game. at the moment there are around 20 Silent Hill video games. the story behind the film begins with the main character Harry Mason, who is looking for his missing adopted daughter in the mysterious town of Silent Hill, in the New England region of the northeastern United States. He stumbles upon a gruesome ritual of a local cult and discovers where his daughter really comes from.

The first film adaptation of the video game series was in 2006. It was directed by Christophe Gans, more or less following the plot line of the video game series. Avary used the eternally burning city of Centralia in Pennsylvania as the setting for the film. An unquenchable coal fire rages under this abandoned city, which of course makes the city ideal for horror films. This film also becomes a success, just like the video games, although the real appreciation comes many years later.

In 2012 there will be a low budget sequel, Silent Hill: Revelation, with a different director, who deviates quite strongly from the character of the series. The Japanese Konami was not happy with this, because this affected the character of the series quite a bit. That is why they insisted that they would be more closely involved in the sequel to this series, and that Gans would return. This has now also happened.
