117: Silent Hill 1 & 2 (2006 & 2012) - With Paul Stachniak and Rob Sachs
Things get heated this week as Becky lets regular guest host Paul Stachniak and one of his best friends, Rob Sachs, talk her into watching BOTH Silent Hill film adaptations. Paul and Rob genuinely love the video games and the first film (we’ll get to the deservedly maligned sequel in this episode) and do their best to convince Becky that it’s not only a successful video game adaptation, but also a perfectly serviceable film. The second movie everyone just tries to figure out what went horribly wrong with this film the writer/director has publicly denounced.
This comprehensive episode is everything you could ever possibly want to know about both Silent Hill films, the stories behind them, and what should go in to making a video game adaptation.
Silent Hill 1 is available on Netflix in Canada. Silent Hill: Revelation 3D is available on VOD.
