As some of you know im heading to Chicago to go to Fangoria Con on Sunday March 5th !

Now to be honest.. heres what im hoping for.. of course this may not all happen but this is what im hoping for.

First.. heres from creation entertainment.. our lady.. Alice

ALICE KRIGE
Previewing new SILENT HILL movie; also featured as the Borg Queen in STAR TREK: FIRST CONTACT and VOYAGER and the horror films SLEEPWALKERS, GHOST STORY and HABITAT.
(Sunday only)


Ok so here it goes.. in no particular order.

1. Preview the Silent Hill Movie
2. Capture on my digital camera some shots or at least that part where pyramid head throws some flesh for my friends at Silent Hill Heaven.
3. Meet Alice Krige and talk with her
4. Have Alice also autograph my silent hill movie poster.
5. Hopefully they have a replica or something like that of pyramid head i can take pictures of.
6. Get a few copies of the Silent Hill Newspaper for myself and to give out as prizes in my picture thread game
7. Ask Alice Krige to join Silent Hill Heaven and talk with us.
8. Kiss Alice Krige
9. Show my undying loyalty to silent hill and they let me take the promotional pyramid head mask home with me... ok we all have dreams.
10. Meet fellow SHH boardie Heather Mason and shoot the shit with her.

Now obviously all this aint gonna happen but im hoping. Im also hoping to come back with some video and great pictures for you guys as well...

So heres my question to all you SHH people out there.

1. Is there anything in particular you want me to take pictures of while im there. Doesnt necessarily have to be of Silent Hill.

2. In the chance that I can sit down and talk with Alice... i know im gonna screw this up so if you guys have some questions that would be quick and witty and good .. lets hear them

3. If theres anything I missed.. let me know.

Yell abuse at them in regards to the winner of the movie poster competition, even though they had nothing to do with it.

It's the fanboy way.

I dont think it's going to be that easy to get up close and personal with any of the actors.

Ok i got alot to say and alot of infomation so let me set this up for you so it all makes sense.

First of all I got to Fangoria con with high hopes. Walked in and it was reaaaaaaaly small. In fact within literally 2 min.. i was done walking around looking. There was a few people around.. the guy from american movie walked around all over and there were a few others but no one i got really excited about.

Now i noticed in the main auditorium where all the people were going that on the "big screen" the actors were present. Meaning they had a pre recorded interview and questions and people were just watching it. I suddenly freaked out thinking.. omg.. there not even gonna be here.

Finding anyone in this place that knew anything was impossible. I had 2 people say they were not here and it was a video.. and 2 that said yes they are coming.

So i went around and took a few pictures of some actors im gonna say 3 to be exact. I waited around being pretty pissed and worried this trip was for nothing. To be honest with you there was alot of people there promoting there startup films and what not.. and the people that werent doing that.. were selling dvds.

Ok so i go upstairs... and i see good news.. George Romero is on stage and talking.. well at least he showed up right.

I sit down listen to him blah blah blah.. i was way too excited about this thing and hoping they would show up to really care. It got done.. they shuffled everyone to the right of the auditorium to stand in line for georges autograph.

Next thing i hear is "The silent hill panel will be here shortly... there running late."

SWEET.. THEY ARE GONNA BE HERE!

10 minutes goes by and they dim the lights for the trailer. I watched and it was the same as the one on the site. Next the dude starts introducing everyone. The producer i think his name was Andrew, Deborah, Laurie , and then Alice.. everyone goes nutz because apparently.. there were alot of star trek fans there as well.

The producer says to us.. well that was the trailer.. but this.... this.. is more like what the movie is like.. its still in editing but its almost done.. and bam.. the lights go off.

Now im lucky that i took a test video and got the specs right because the first one i deleted you couldnt even distinguish the actors. So they play the video and im standin up because i NEED to get this video for you guys.

Without further adu........ here it is : 13 megs

http://home.wi.rr.com/rdmrdm/Movie.wmv

So now that your done watching it your probably wondering what happened to the last 4 seconds of that clip..

WELLLLLLLLLL... i ran out of freaking room.. soooooooooooooooooooo pissed but nothin i could do. I frantically start going through all the oother pics of people and erase them and lower my specs on the camera so at least i can take some pictures of the actors because FINALLY someone confirmed they were giving away the small posters and signing them.

Alright... so im waiting patiently and decided to do some research. I started asking everyone how they liked the games. I shit you not..... 3 people out of 20 even played the games and the rest were there for free stuff and to get signatures and to get there star trek stuff signed. Hrmmmpfh.

While doing this i overhear someone coming back to their seat saying it doesnt look good for the general admission people because the actors have to leave.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHH NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I immediatly jump up and run out to the ticket booth and demand a gold ticket to get further up in the line. They give me one ... for 60 bucks and im heading in.

Now this line is freaking huge... just huge and it was taking forever. The security guard (woman) was dressed up as Resident Evil Stars woman and was watching the line like a hawk. So i everytime she turned i moved up another row.. and another row.. and another row until im the 4th row.

She notices me and asks me what im doing.. so i go into my speach. This is where the lying about the board thing comes in.

I tell her that i am a staff member for Silent Hill Forum and Silent Hill Heaven and im here to get photo's and signatures and talk to the actors. She says well... first off.. no photos.. and second.. im not sure if your gonna make it in the line because they have to leave for a flight soon.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The line is moving but not very far and im getting very antsy and impatient at this point. I spot out Laurie and Deborah's husband's/boyfriends and as my backup plan.. i was going to ask them a favor for me to at least get the signatures and hear what i had to say.

Luckily the woman was nice and let me in the line. Seemed forever... and i mean forever..

I get around the corner and im like 10 feet from Laurie and i hear the exec people saying to cut the line off they have to leave. Now mind you only like 4 preferred lines went and there was at least anothe 20 to go.

However I was lucky and got closer and closer. Now im not a big fan of listening to rules so i set my camera on no flash and started taking pictures. Some of them noticed but i dont think cared.. and then....I was in front of Laurie.

I would like to say first off.. this woman is beautiful.. no joke. Just stunning.. i lost my breath and train of thought when she said hi to me. But .. knowing what i had to do.. i did it.

I introduced myself as being a staff member for both boards and asked her to sign my poster. She did and then I asked her if she has ever visited either of the forums.. she replied no.. BUT.. she really wants to and talk with us at both forums. WOW!!!

She asked me to come back after i was done with the line with both links to both forums so she could sign up and talk with us here on the boards. I was extreeeeeemly happy and excited and i moved onto Deborah. Another beutiful woman and she overheard me talking to Laurie and said she was interested in it also. She signed my poster and i thanked her and down the row i went... it was Alice.

Alice was very nice.. sweet lady.. made me feel like she was someone i could just sit and talk to like my mom or something and i told her about the forum too... and before i got too far into it.. the producer started talking to me.

This part.. i swear im not lying about.. it was just unbelievable.

He said that Christophe has been visiting both these boards and reading alot of what we have to say. Has taken suggestions but has basically been a silent partner in all of this. I WAS LIKE HOLY CRAP!

He said that he loves both forums and said that on his new blog page he hopes to answer all the questions that we had.

Ok .. since you listened to all of that.. here are some pictures for you :

i must apologize for some of the quality.. i was way in back at one point and because i wasnt allowed to use the flash.. they are not the best but its something.

Ok .. and here is a very small video.. well not too small.. its 10 megs.

http://home.wi.rr.com/threechords/MVI_1290.avi

I have more to say.. but i see people are dying to read this.. so i will continue later.

PART 2

EDITED

Ok .. part 2.. not much but i figured i would end this thing out at least.

I have to say one thing.. the actresses were really nice.... seriously.. you know when you meet some celebrities and there like dicks to you or kinda snobbish.. there was none of that here.. in fact Laurie at one point asked "Hows it lookin for the line?" Since she looked at me i told her .. not too good.. theres alot of people and there only on row 5 right now.

I later heard her say that she wanted to know why they were closing the line... again.. i spoke up and said that i overheard they had a flight to which she replied... "Well we can push it to the last minute... were here for you guys."

God im in love...

Anyways... i pack my poster back up which people are just oogling over because i think me and one other guy actually had the full size HUGE poster for the movie.

Oh.....

and speaking about posters... i told the producer what I / some of us thought about the one that won.

He said there was nothing they could do about it.. the poster that won had twice as many votes as any of the other finalists... wow.

So i run back to my friend that has been waiting patiently for like an hour now at least and i get to my paper....

because i came prepared you see...

I had the web site addresses for Silent Hill Forum and Silent Hill Heaven all printed up real nice for all three of them.

I casually walk back up to where they are and get stopped of course but i just busted out...

Laurie asked me to come back to give her some information. :bthumbup:

I go past and now im standing right next too her. I hand her the paper and thanked her again for her signature and asked if she would give this to both Alice and Deborah and for them to please visit both sites and come and talk with us. She said she would.. we shook hands....

and thats really it.

The rest of the show was a bust.. but to see that clip.. to see the ladies.. was allllllllll worth it.

Now one other thing... i gotta take care of..

Some people wanted to know information or see pictures or what not so here goes that part.

During the interview process it was pretty general... One question did come up about Izzabella (sp?) and she really didnt want to go into details about her charachter but something about being the one that controls the light and evil in silent hill is what i got out of it.

Btw.. i have never heard so many people want to kill Uwe Boll ever in my life.. they were just going off on the guy.

Next all three actresses said that one thing was true... they ALL had nightmares after the filming was done. Some of the scenes were so bad it just gave them the jeebies.

There is some real blood on the actors because of stunts and what not.. and some fake blood.

umm.. what else...

Oh... Laurie mentioned that this movie was very erotic .. some parts are just so beautiful and others so disturbing.. she really liked making the film.

I think thats about it... im taking questions ..

oh and sorry.. no pyramid head there... i didnt get any pictures because well.. after i lost the last 4 seconds of the video.. well i erased what i had to make room for the actresses.

The end

First off. THANK YOU for all your troubles! I'm sure you had a blast!

Man, I'm really glad to hear that Gans is visiting our forum. I'm having even higher hope for the movie now, since he probably reads all the theories posted on this board. I'm just so excited!

I'm downloading the movies right now as I'm typing this.

Again congrats and thank you!

Savral,

Thank you.

You really when out there and did above and beyond to get us a glimpse into the con and getting the site out to the actors. Just fantastic work!

I've been a fan of Laurie since seeing her on The X-Files and I know from that fandom that she is a nice person as she has always been friendly to the fans of the show. And it's great to see that her disposition is the same with the SH fans.

Wow! Gans has been here and the actors might visit...that is something else. I don't know about RE or Tomb Raider but I've never heard of the people working on a film be so interested and involed with the fans. This is just wonderful.

Thanks again for the report, video, shout out, everything! You Rock!!!

PS: OHE NOOOOOES!!! PHISRIPPING TEH SKIN!!!!!! :shock:
