For the twelfth episode of season 4, we watched the 2012 sequel to the 2006 movie we watched two weeks ago. That's right, we watched "Silent Hill: Revelation" starring Adelaide Clemens, Kit Harington (in his film debut), Martin Donovan, Malcolm McDowell and Carrie-Anne Moss, with Sean Bean, Deborah Kara Unger and Radha Mitchell returning from the previous film. At least it has a good cast.

But now for your weekly video game history lesson, unless you're well versed in “Silent Hill” mythos, in which case you can just--

Wait a minute… I did this two weeks ago, didn't I?

Okay. No overarching series history lesson with a deeper concentration on the first game today.

Instead we'll talk about one of the characters that appears in both movies, so I can say a fair amount about him.

Sean Bean, you ask? Why, no. Why would I be mentioning him when I could clearly be talking about the most imposing character in either movie: Pyramid Head!

I'm mentioning Pyramid Head because he appears in both of these movies, yet does not appear in either of the games they are based on (Silent Hill 1 & 3 respectively). No, Mr. Head first came about in Silent Hill 3, and by first I mean only since he hasn't appeared again in any main series game. That Shiba Inu and that alien get more love than him. I do not have the space to explain both of those to you.

In that game there were actually two Pyramid Heads (#MissedOpportunities #ThisIsntTwitterSoHashtagsDoNothingHere) and they fight to the death in the end.

So, why did they put Pyramid Head into both of these film? Honestly I can only think of one reason, but it's probably the same one they used to rationalize it; I've never played Silent Hill 2, but I know who Pyramid Head is. The studio probably found out how iconic Pyri was and decided to jam him into the story for the sake of fan recognition alone. Go back and watch the first movie (except don't). There's never a real reason stated in it for Pyramid Head to be there doing anything. He's just randomly trying to kill people without a goal, as though he was thrown into the script at the last minute. Thanks for all the thought you put into your work Hollywood. The sequel does fix that little problem, though.
