Trivia / Session 9

  • Follow the Leader: Frequently compared to The Shining.
  • Referenced by...: The image of the lonely chair in a dark, decayed hallway from the "Hello, Gordon" scene was given a direct visual Shout-Out in Silent Hill 3.
  • What Could Have Been: In the original cut of the film, there was a homeless woman living in the hospital, who was implied to be one of its former patients and was used as a sort of a Red Herring for the murders. The crew never encounter her, instead just getting hints of her presence until the end, when she kills Gordon after witnessing the murders. In test screenings, the audience confused this woman with another character, so she was cut from the film. However, many of the hints remain (some of them devoid of a good explanation, as the creators point out in the commentary track). These are now hints of something cut from the film, rather than merely unseen by the protagonists.
