  • "Silent Hill 2" centers on James Sunderland, who enters the town after receiving a letter written by his deceased wife, saying she is waiting for him in their "special place" in Silent Hill. Joined by Maria, who strongly resembles her, he searches for her and discovers the truth about her death. The town, Silent Hill, draws upon the psyche of its visitors and ultimately forms alternative versions of the town, which differ depending on the character. The concept behind the town was "a small, rural town in America"; to make the setting more realistic, some buildings and rooms lack furnishings.

    James Sunderland comes to the town after receiving a letter from his wife Mary (Monica Taylor Horgan), who died of an illness three years ago. After arriving in Silent Hill, James decides to search a local park, where he meets Maria, who claims that she has never met or seen Mary and, as she is scared, he allows her to follow him. While looking for Laura inside a hospital, James and Maria are ambushed by the monster Pyramid Head, and Maria is killed by him just as James escapes; He resumes his task of finding Mary, and chooses to search a local hotel, where he and Mary spent their vacation. On the way, James finds Maria alive and unharmed in a locked room. ...

    Did You Know? The Blue Creek apartment building in "Silent Hill" is a reference to the film "Blue Velvet" (1986). "Blue", for the movie's title; and "Creek" as a synonym for "River", for the Deep River apartments seen in the film. The apartments in "Silent Hill" are very similar to the look and overall layout of the Deep River apartments in the David Lynch film.
