i know this may be old but here's Pyramid Head's role in homecoming explained (somewhat). and some opinions about the silent hill franchise by Jason Allen ( Lead designer in homecoming ) and a little chat with Akira regarding the game's OST and his work in the franchise.
Interview with the Pyramid head explanation AND movie visual influences:
