* Some FridgeLogic: Christabella believed that she was saving the world and staving off the Apocalypse by burning "witches", and towards the end she calls Rose's accusations "heresy". However, if she was familiar with the Bible and [[Literature/BookOfRevelation Revelation]] in particular, which she certainly seem familiar with, given that the prayer she lead the cult in was a direct quote from it she would realize that the Apocalypse is part of God's plan. Granted, she's obviously not a mentally sound person, so her theology is certain to bound holes aplenty in it. But wouldn't trying to prevent TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt make ''her'' a heretic?

* Fridge Brilliance: The motive of the Cult and the origins of Silent Hill's evil: When I originally saw the movie in theaters I saw the change in the cult's nature and motives as a case of Adaption Decay, but thinking about it now, it actually works extremely well with themes of the later SH games, particularly those like SH 2. While mainly an adaption of SH 1, by changing the villains from an obviously evil demonic cult trying to summon their God to a group of fanatical self-righteous zealots who kick off everything by torturing an innocent, the filmmakers bring similar themes of "personal hidden guilt" and "purgatory" to the movie adaption that became more prominent in later game entries after SH 1.

* The relationship between Murphy Pendleton and Anne Cunningham have interesting parallels to each other. [[spoiler:One of them is a parent who has lost a child, and the other is a child who has lost a father.]]

** To be precise, the game focuses on feminine fears, especially body horror ones like botched pregnancies, miscarriages, messy abortions, and sure, periods as well.

*** Well, a couple things about this. First off is the fact that the story really doesn't make any sense whatsoever, and even the writer himself has no idea what's happening in this game's story, as seen in the Twin Perfect videos on the game, and all the stuff with Alessa in Origins is total bunk. Second is that he DID have a reason to be there. It was pulling him there, calling him, to deal with his issues with his parents.

** Exhibit one: Alex Shepherd, the protagonist of ''VideoGame/SilentHillHomecoming'', is the most athletic ''Silent Hill'' protagonist to date. At first, we are led to believe that it's due to spending time in the military. However, it is later revealed that he never ''was'' in the military, but that a combination of HeroicBSOD and LaserGuidedAmnesia led him to believe he was. A [[EpilepticTrees popular fan theory]] to cover this PlotHole is that because he believed he was athletic, [[YourMindMakesItReal Silent Hill "made" him athletic]]. Now, what does that mean for the rest of the series?

* A bit of FridgeHorror. The cult, Dahlia, and even Officer Gucci don't seem particularly surprised that there's a reincarnated version of Alessa running around. Since Sharon is only nine years old, and since Alessa seems to be unable to torture the cult with her good side still incorporated in herself, this leads to the disturbing question of just how many Sharons there have been and what happened to the others.

* Throughout the franchise, damage done to player characters is generally done by things that would seriously injure someone; lacerations, blunt trauma, etc. So why on Earth is the common 'small health' item a nutritious drink? [[spoiler: Silent Hill is a realm of the mind; of ideas and symbolism. Literally, because the drink is "healthy", it has the ability to undo physical wounds instantly while in Silent Hill.]]
