So I was thinking of writing a novel where the silent hill effect has cloaked the whole world... just thinking of possible scenarios etc.
Would it be just plagarizing? or is there a more leeway with writing a story that is in essence inspired by silent hill?

You can be inspired by Silent Hill or anything you'd like. You just need to make it enough your own. You especially can't rip off Silent Hill's title, characters, story etc. And you might want to come up with a different effect for the transition other than the SH siren. You could think of something else eerie and unique.

But yes, you could create an environment & atmosphere similar to SH with your own monsters, characters, and story.
Konami can't really copyright concepts like environment and atmosphere and othersides/dimensions. In fact, Silent Hill drew inspiration from things before it.
