Director Statement

Leigh Thorne -
This film was a 'Love Letter' to the Silent Hill community, celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the Konami game "Silent Hill 2".

This short was written in a manner to give joy to the fans of the franchise but is enjoyable for anyone without any knowledge of the games and characters.

This dark psychological short was filmed with zero budget, during a pandemic and the cast and crew all have full-time jobs, with this in mind, the film took 1 year to make.

I/We hope you enjoy this trip down the 'Road of Guilt'.
