I'm sure others have seen this but... when Rose runs from one building of the school to the courtyard to the other, did anyone else notice that in that hop scotch area, the starting area says "Hell?" I started to notice it after the 3rd time watching it. Could this be Alessa's doing? or been put there by the school children during the whole "witch" incident?

I knew the start of the hopscotch said "Hell" but had not even noticed the "Heaven" at the top.

[spoiler]My theory behind this is that the children in Alessa's childhood drew their hopscotch games like that. As far as I know for the most part, they and their parents were part of the cult and therefore religious zealots, and so they even brought their religion into simple games like hopscotch.[/spoiler]

Didn't know if that even slightly counted as a spoiler. Best to be safe.

I'm trying to understand the whole story of Silent Hill and all, so maybe that sounds like it made no sense....but that's just what I think.

I thought it was pretty neat.

It would make sence, you jump up to the end [heaven], but ultamately return to the start [hell]

No. It's more like a Christian concept. When you start (when you're born), you're not saved, you're in Hell, in a sense. Then if you get saved, when you make it to the end and you've stayed pure (stayed on the right path/numbers/etc.) you make it to Heaven. That would be according to them though, that's not truly what Christianity teaches.

Yeah. My thoughts exactly. They might have taught the kids that at church, and brainwashed them through things like that.

I did notice that, and it brought a smile to my face. Simple, understated, and yet very very effective. It gives you some idea of the great minds behind this movie adaptation. They weren't satisfied simply to do a scene for scene translation, but left their own indelible mark of the series.

I noticed that in the first time I watched the movie... Nice detail; maybe don't mean anything but fulfill the "creepy" requirements for a Silent Hill envoronment...
