SILENT HILL is a horror / survival game that is played from the third person perspective. It was originally released on the Sony PlayStation in 1999. The player assumes the role of Harry Mason, a writer who has visited the town of Silent Hill with his young daughter, Cheryl. Following a car crash Harry regains consciousness to discover that Cheryl is missing. The purpose of the game is to navigate Harry through the playing environment in search of his lost daughter. The game was passed ‘15’ for strong violence.

The BBFC Guidelines at ‘12’ state that violence must not dwell on detail and that there should be no emphasis on injuries or blood. As Harry wanders through the playing environment he encounters a succession of monsters and zombies. He is initially armed with a knife and a handgun but he acquires other weapons (i.e. a shotgun and a hunting rifle) during the course of the game. Stabbing, clubbing or shooting monsters or zombies produces blood spurts (sometimes purple coloured in the case of monsters) and we see blood on the ground from time to time. Harry himself can sustain bloody injuries and be killed. The emphasis on blood was a little too strong for ‘12’ but comfortably contained at ‘15’. It proved impossible to mutilate or otherwise inflict post-mortem damage on fallen adversaries.

The language in SILENT HILL, which includes terms such as 'hell', 'damn', 'pissed' and 'screwing' (non-sexual), would have been acceptable at ‘PG’.

This work was passed with no cuts made.
