I know plenty about Silent Hill. The first game scared the hell out of me, but when I noticed all the horror references, it simply added to the love I had for the game. Then I read up more about the theories regarding the story along with a huge amount of other references I never even noticed. Imagine a group of developers from Japan showing their influence from some of the biggest horror creators in history to then funnel that inspiration into a game. Today, however, I learned of another influence of the team known as Team Silent…Kindergarten Cop.
A post from last year on the SilentHillForum.com has been gaining some attention as of late. The topic? Silent Hill & Kindergarten Cop. How do they go together? Well either a huge fan of the game was watching Kindergarten Cop, or a fan of the movie was playing the game, noticed that several scenes in the game were lifted from the movie. Looking at the pictures, you can safely say that Team Silent was influenced by Kindergarten Cop. Great, now the game seems a little less scary now.
