Silent Hill And Kindergarten Cop Are Set In The Same Place?

“Who is your daddy, and what does he do?” That might be a recognizable quote from Arnold Schwarzenegger, but  you might not recognize the 90’s movie that it came from, Kindergarten Cop. My grandparents bought it for me when I was a kid, so I’ve seen it a few too many times. Apparently someone at Team Silent was also gifted a copy of the cheesy film.

One eagle-eyed SilentHillForum user spotted some chilling similarities between the original Silent Hill game and Schwarzenegger’s most exciting film. Usually these sorts of similarities can be brushed off as purely coincidental, but aside from the first exterior shot, it’s impossible to deny. Even if you ignore all of the posters that line up, just have one look at the bus. Go on, look a little closer. That’s right, it’s number 7, just like in the movie.

It’s amazing that for a game that has been around for 13 years that this has gone unnoticed until now. Actually, if you watch the movie just once, you’ll understand why no one noticed it. It’s been probably 20 years since I’ve seen it, and I still have no desire to revisit it.
