The irony with this story is that P.T. was, at first, special because it was a playable teaser rather than a cinematic one, and now it’s been turned into a film. Indeed, fans at the YouTube channel Oddest of the Odd have seen fit to turn the recently-famous P.T. into a thirteen-minute short film, and I guess you could say (though it wouldn’t be saying much) that “Silent Hills P.T. in real life” is one of the best video game movies ever made. Because it’s actually pretty cool.
The adaptation obviously takes a few liberties with P.T.’s format, but it’s still retreading the same hallway over and over in first person, and it’s pretty nifty to see so much of the game come to life like this. The expressed purpose (other than to make a cool short) as stated in the description is to reach Kojima, Reedus, and Del Toro because they “REALLY want this game developed,” and, though they’ve more than likely missed the window on Silent Hills literally getting revived, maybe the film will help inspire the trio if they do end up collaborating in the future.
It’s not the scariest movie you’re ever going to see, but it’ll spook ya’ and it’s worth a watch if you’re a fan of P.T. Look above to check out P.T. as a live-action short film.
