a little note about silent hill however, silent hill is by far the "creepiest" movie i have ever seen by a long shot and in the top 20 for scariest. it was also pretty innovative as it was the first movie to incorporate the whine/loss of hearing noise into a scene one has when hit with a concussion to the head as well as the first movie i recall with not one but two female action leads. heck, the top four actors in the movie were women. also i would say that based on a video game or not, many of us who knew nothing of the game were greatly surprised and happy to see the scene evolve when the siren went off. i was really blown away as well by the special effects and the use of fog/darkness/ash/crumbling walls to play into the suspense. i would watch it again and again but those little babies give me the heebie-jeebies far worse than the one from trainspotting.
