Silent Hill the game has always been a favourite of mine. I think more than the game I enjoy the concepts presented in the story. I don’t want to be a big spoiler person so I am going to just say that the ideas of personal nightmares and some of the creations fascinate me.

I was, I admit, then quite surprised to hear that there was a town who was closer to the reality of the smoke filled daylight that is presented quite damned well in the movie Silent Hill.

Centralia has a pretty tragic story in itself, a town that slowly dwindled, a few people remain I think. The once bustling mining town became too dangerous to sustain once the coal mines underneath caught accident. ┬áThe government have stated that it’s just too expensive to extinguish it and I have to wonder as wonderfully advanced as things might be, how the hell would you start? I’m not an expert so I guess I have no idea but wow… some kind of mission that would be.

I could really go on about this one for some time but I’ve decided instead to post a video of Silent Hill and then one for Centralia for viewing pleasure. I should expect I will venture back to this subject again.
