Jason Voorhees Goes To Silent Hill

Post by Pazuzu on Tue May 09, 2017 5:54 pm

As a long-time Friday The 13th fan who's also a big Silent Hill fan, I'd love to see how this might happen. Jason Voorhees, notorious mass murderer who seemingly never dies and always comes back to kill again somehow finds himself in Silent Hill. I know what some of you might be thinking, Jason is immortal and can never die and would likely not be affected by Silent Hill's powers. But therein is exactly how it could work; immortality can arguably be so much more of a curse than a blessing and in Jason's case it certainly can be seen as such, as he lives only to keep on killing even after he already avenged his mother's death. The town of Silent Hill could really toy with Jason psychologically in that regard, showing how because he can't die he's essentially doomed to keep suffering and how he'll never truly join his mother in death and be at peace.

Taking into account the symbolic aspects of the SH monsters and how SH itself brings to life the worst fears of those who enter, it'd have plenty to go on such as Jason's traumatic childhood where he was likely bullied and shunned by the outside world for his appearance. Seeing as SH generates it's monsters to reflect the fears and hate of those who enter it, I can see Jason encountering monsters similar to the Grey Children and Rompers from the original, as the Greys could represent the kids who bullied and mocked him, and the Rompers could also potentially represent cruel adults who never helped him as a child. He obviously hates humans and I could see him encountering creatures that would represent his hate of people and how he's doomed to keep on killing and ultimately never achieve a true goal. Some might mention Jason being afraid of water due to Freddy Vs. Jason but that wasn't actually a fear of water, rather a subsconscious fear of drowning as that's how Jason originally died (if it can be described as that). SH could certainly torment him using that, making him re-live those horrific memories to bring him down. If it can't kill him it could certainly use his most vulnerable points to make him suffer.

Although Jason is unkillable and has superhuman strength, he'd be up against enemies he's not used to who can match him in terms of strength with the monsters he'd encounter along the way. With how good he is with weaponry he'd likely find his share of bladed and sharp implements along the way that are usually scattered throughout SH (just imagine him with something like the rock drill from SH1 or the emergency hammer). I know there's lots of SH fans who dislike the usage of Pyramid Head outside of SH2, but who knows if Jason could run into him and square off. Pyramid Head in Jason's mind could be representative of how Jason himself is a death figure and he's up against a similar figure who's sole purpose is to be an executioner (if you buy that backstory for Pyramid Head in the SH movie). Thinking it over, Jason vs. Pyramid Head in this regard is actually a battle that would make sense as Pyramid Head can be seen as a figure who exists solely to punish and kill, much like Jason himself. Jason essentially being up against a death figure much like himself.

I think this crossover done right would be all sorts of awesome and also be a good way to explore the more psychological and troubled aspects of Jason's character, which we've very rarely seen over the course of the F13 series. How do you see things faring for Jason Voorhees if somehow he wound up in Silent Hill?

I'm sure that Jason, along with whoever owns his franchise, would get very bored sitting around in Silent Hill waiting, as the rest of us, for something to happen there. ;)

However, if we're playing celebrity deathmatch, can I send Judge Dredd into town please? Or Jose Mourinho?

It'd be interesting to see how certain other characters might fare in Silent Hill if somehow they wound up there. Certain people are affected differently depending on what they bring internally.

If James can wooden plank his way through the monster infested streets, it stands to reason that Voorhees would be dicing ‘em up no problem. But, just what happens when Jason comes to an area of Silent Hill that he can’t advance through unless he first solves a puzzle?

Thought about that and...

You have a human in another dimension etc that you keep alive even though they aren't in front or could be touched by Jason.
You still play as Jason, but actions keep alive another group of humans in their fight.
Grad I've lost you.

Not an escort mission like Silent Hill 4. But your progress and length of time without dying adds to a cutscene where you see the people from another dimension survived and also allows their human hands to solve puzzles.
Of course the game would have to end as the cutscene leads to the opportunity to have the surviving human (Unplayable humanS?) killed by Jason before going on to fight big boss..

So all the time you think you are helping the humans to escape, you are in fact bringing them closer and closer to the dimension where Jason is there to kill.
No results found for oohfakanorus.

I'd be interested to see the monsters SH would manifest to reflect Jason's own inner turmoil. As I said in the original post, I can see creatures similar to the Rompers and Grey Children in Jason's own Silent Hill.

Although both are different, Jason and Alessa actually share some strong similarities. The two have no reason to ever meet, but they have their share of things in common for sure.

Could work as a gameplay mechanic. Which silent hill would Jason be in, real world, fog world, or nightmare world? Would it be like SH2 with Jason confronting personal demons, or would it be a SH1/SH3 story with him killing cult members while they attempt to summon the old god somehow?

A silent hill/hellraiser crossover could be interesting. Wouldn’t want it as a videogame but maybe in the form of a graphic novel. The main character already deep in the nightmare world silent hill opens the lament configuration and creates a gate for the cenobites into silent hill. Could be interesting.

I think him experiencing his own inner demons and seeing SH manifest the Fog World and Otherworld for him would probably work better, but it could also be interesting to see the cult worked into it. Perhaps they might see him as something of an instrument for their cause. I'd really like to see how his Otherworld would look.

I think this crossover and the Hellraiser one would both be interesting to see as a graphic novel and it's well suited for that media. Though the more I think about it, F13/SH as a special event game could also work.
