This section contains two Silent Hill music videos:
Ki-No-Ko (Length: 05.23)
A music video with a sepia tone color palette and strange subject matter. You can see images of pulsating mushrooms, a twirling hall of lights, James standing in a hospital room, various close ups of human eyes and mouths, two legs stretching out and three save squares flying above the streets of Silent Hill.
Caramel Mix (Length 04.41)
A music video with a green, red, yellow monochromatic color palette. Silent Hill 2 game creatures, rooms, notes, and characters, etc. flash into one another set to a techno beat. Hard to get a good look at anything in particular since all the images shake, twist, overlap and turn with the music very quickly.
Fukuro (Length: 03.27)
A music video staring everyone’s favorite bad dude….Pyramid Head! With appearances by Lying Figures, Mannequin and the mysterious “Fukuro,” a female creature that rides on the back of a Lying Figure. Another strange music video that’s a fan favorite
32 creature pictures from Silent Hill and Silent Hill 2, including some Silent Hill 2 creature concept art.
Contains trailer and opening videos of Silent Hill and Silent Hill 2.
Tokyo Game Show 2000 Autumn Trailer (Length: 04.33)
The first Silent Hill 2 trailer shown at the Tokyo Game Show in Autumn 2000. The trailer features the temporary Silent Hill 2 logo and can hear an acoustic version of the game's main theme, Theme of Laura (which was never put on the soundtrack). Another cool fact: Takayoshi Sato purchased the rendering server needed to prepare the cut scenes featured in this trailer with his own personal savings, prior to gaining corporate budget approval.

Tokyo Game Show 2001 Spring Trailer (Length: 07.54)
The second, much longer Silent Hill 2 trailer premiered at the Tokyo Game Spring 2001 shows various in-game cut scenes as well as an interesting feature not seen in the final version of the game - Pyramid Head wandering the Wood Side and Blue Creek apartments!
E3 2001 (Length: 05.45)
This is the third Silent Hill 2 trailer shown at E3 in 2001. The video features the final Silent Hill 2 logo design, more detailed cut-scenes (many from the opening movie) and in-games fight scenes. The music again featured changes/revisions to Theme of Laura not heard on the original recording.
Silent Hill Opening Movie (Length: 02.20)
The Silent Hill opening ... with a difference. Instead of opening with the quote “The fear of blood tends to create fear for the flesh” with a close up of Alessa’s portrait, it begins instead with a plain black screen and the quote “You will encounter a wall of darkness, and the wrath of the underworld. These will help you.” Another strange difference are the words on Cheryl’s sketchpad; it now reads “Drawing Block” on the cover instead of the gibberish "COOWIGR DINOK" that is seen in the final game opening.

Silent Hill 2 Opening Movie (Length: 05.53)
The Silent Hill 2 opening directly from the game and includes the in-game cut scene dialogue.
