It's heartening to know that Gans spent 5 years developing SH with the screenwriters and viedo game company Konami. It's heartening to know that Silent Hill 2 is his favorite game of all time. It's heartening to know this movie will be rated R. It's heartening to know that eventually- soon, even- this movie will come out and I can stop thinking about it. I feel like a stalker, somehow. It's all got to stop before I end up standing outside of Silent Hill's house holding a boombox up over my head, wooing it with old Peter Gabriel songs.
This tidbit from the set visit has me drooling in my Cocoa Puffs, though: there's a scene in which Rose (Radha Mitchell) is searching for her lost daughter in the hospital...
At this point, she must walk through the nurses undetected…in a pitch black environment no less. She cannot turn on her flashlight. It attracts these zombified nurses.Oooh, baby! I am so there. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to dig out my copy of So on cassette.
*I have never seen Forget Paris. In fact, I try to avoid romantic comedies at all costs, despite the fact that they're, you know, 'chick flicks' and I am, in all honesty, a 'chick'. As a rule, I also avoid movies with Billy Crystal, although I have met him before and he was an OK guy. Please note, as well, that the term 'chick flick' makes me want to punch people, as does the term 'chick lit'. I do, however, enjoy a 'Chiclet' from time to time.
