A word to all Inner Fear followers


Lately, there’s been a huge controversy around the content recently published on the blog’s facebook page, regarding the latest Silent Hill: Revelation 3D TV Spots. The problem then started with an image taken by me from the 2nd Silent Hill: Revelation TV Spot. The thing is that the admin from a Silent Hill fan page came claming rights on the screenshot I actually took on my own PC, all this based on the fact that his page shared that SH:R promo before and also took an image from the same shot.

Why did I take this image? The answer is easy. It was a brand new creature from the upcoming Silent Hill 2 movie. Wanted to share it with you, but sources were misunderstood.

Here is the comparison between the two images:

You may compare both images and realize that they are clearly different, however, because they are both from the same shot in a trailer, mine was considered “STOLEN”. The fact is that both images were taken from a public video, available worldwide, which means that none of us hold rights on the trailer, so anyone is free to take as many printscreens as they wish. And this rule won’t change because one of us posted the video first.

Of course the images are similar, as I stated previously, they are both taken from the same shot on the same trailer. So, based on the fact that that same shot has about 2 seconds, it’s totally normal that equal images might appear, because of the frame rate rule. Otherwise read the explanation:

Frame rate (also known as frame frequency) is the frequency (rate) at which an imaging device produces unique consecutive images called frames. The term applies equally well to film andvideo cameras, computer graphics, and motion capture systems. Frame rate is most often expressed in frames per second (FPS) and is also expressed in progressive scan monitors as hertz(Hz).

-wikipedia-

This trailer has 25 frames per second, which means that each second on the video is built by 25 images. So, if the shot from where the images were taken, had 2 seconds, that would mean it was built by 50 images (frames). You can imagine how similar would the images be at a certain point, right? If not, you can try to do the test on an Editing Software.

Now, the worst part of all this was the fact that the same admin of the page that claimed rights on an image he didn’t own, claimed those same rights right in Inner Fear’s facebook, publicly for everyone to see it and read calumnies without foundation.Unfortunately I didn’t take any screenshot of the post, as the author decided to delete it on time. And so he did with other comments on another post on the page.

Of course that, if that guy had came to me and explain his point, I’d understand and try to reach an agreement civilly, but As you might understand I couldn’t let this episode pass forgotten and I made my point clear on the other guy’s page. I basicaly made clear that my job on this blog is based on clarity as you can testify, and also said how I’d hope that those kind of episodes would never happened again. I didn’t get any answer on that and for some days everything was calm and I actually didn’t think more about this. It was like everyone got back to their normal lifes. At least I did it.

However this situation just got worse when I, after some days, [finally] got an answer from another admin on their page. The answer was clearly rude, forgiving the other admin’s behaviour on my page, and actually giving him reason, still defending that I actually stole content from their page. I can still quote stuff like: “I’m not dumb” and many other stuff. – Again, I cannot show you the records because, like before, the page purposely deleted it. Still, it was available to everyone to read for some time.

In the meanwhile, the same page decided to share Silent Hill: Revelation 3D images on my facebook page wall, showing therefore an extremmelly provocative attitude.  I made clear that I didn’t share that image on the page yet, so I’d hope they weren’t preparing to claim rights AGAIN, specially after reading the hostil answer they gave me before.

So this is the part when things just got better (or not). My comment to their image shared on MY page, gave origin to a bunch of insultuous comments and offensive language.

So basically you can read insults after insults, with no foundation.
Things like:  “I wasn’t online that morning” and my “200 likes or some bullshit” serve as reason to insult me for what I’ve already reported to you on the previous points of this post.

The rest talks for its own… It’s sad to see this kind of stuff happening without apparent reason. Everything because two different images taken from the same video. Konami, DCP and Open Road own the rights of that images, so it’s their job to judge if I took a printscreen from their video that was made public for EVERYONE WORLDWIDE. In the meanwhile there are people that waste their time flamming and spreading rage for free!

For over one year I kept this page running and I NEVER had any kind of issues with this kind of stuff (copyright infrigements etc) and you can testify that. For over one year I always kept my convictions straight to the point of this blog – sharing everything Silent Hill related and build a place of reference to Silent Hill fans. Of course I cannot be 24Hours connected, specially for personal reasons that I actually said on the blog. Plus, if those persons like to treat their “LIKES” as garbage, I don’t. I’ll keep working to anyone who wants to read this blog and join its social networks!  Is that a crime? I don’t think so, but still it is good enough to have people criticizing and insulting. I’m okay with it.

It’s just sad to see this lack of integrity and It’s interesting how some more pages were targets of this rage. As you were able to read on the image above and in the image below:

Because this page shared some images I’ve taken from the 3rd SH:R TV Spot , it also got some reactions from the same people that bombed Inner Fear.

We all like to be recognized for what we are, what we do, what we create. But we aren’t the owners of the world, so the best thing to do is to create something we can call ours.

–Since the people in question weren’t worried to measure words in public, slandering MY blog, I decided not to disguise what they already made public.

1 Year of Inner Fear


Over a year ago, at the same moment I was knowing, for the first time, that a Silent Hill HD Collection was being produced for Playstation 3 (exclusevly), I’ve decided to do something to bring it to the Xbox 360 console as well! So, the least I could do was to gather some people, with the same idea, to help showing our will to see that future HD Collection on Xbox 360 as well! And so I did, created an online petition, and also created a facebook page to spread the word more quickly, as social networks tend to make some “miracles” now-a-days. In the end Konami announced the release of the game on the microsoft console and our goal had been suceeded! Since “we” had Silent Hill: HD Collection, finally confirmed on Xbox 360, everything was done there, however I decided to keep posting on the facebook page created for the petition (because it already had some members) and I kept posting not only HDC related stuff but also about Silent Hill in general.

This was the moment I decided that it would make sense to create a project without the tag “We Want Silent Hill: HD Collection on Xbox 360!!”, so I started searching for some blog hosters to start more than a facebook page, a site that everyone could visit without the limits of a Social Network.
I found wordpress.com and created Inner Fear, a reference to Silent Hill 2 european version (Inner Fears). Since that day I tried to keep every follower updated with all the Silent Hill news, specially in an important moment for the series, when Silent Hill: HD Collection was being announced, Downpour was being released in some months before the delays and Silent Hill: Book of Memories, another title announced.

To mark this last year, here’s a list of the TOP 13 Silent Hill moments, with respective links to the same content on the blog!

1- Silent Hill HD Collection is finally confirmed to be released on the Xbox 360 console, which leads to the creation of Inner Fear

2- The HD Collection is drowned on controversy as it’s announced that it would get new voices for both Silent Hill 2 and 3.

3- Silent Hill: Revelation 3D keeps getting updates from the Director Michael J. Bassett through his blog. The film was finally in post production and some months later it was completed, however, no release date announced until the date 26, October 2012 was finally revealed.

4-The controversy around the new Voices on the HD Collection gets bigger and bigger as fans refuse to lose the original cast from Silent Hill 2. Monica Taylor Horgan and Guy Cihi take a position and claim their rights, always having the backup of the fans.

5- Silent Hill Downpour gets his TGS trailer featuring Korn’s theme for the game, which created a big controversy as well.

6- Silent Hill Downpour is delayed [again] and Amazon provides 30 sec previews of Daniel Licht’s tracks for the game. The new composer was approved.

7- Konami confirms that Silent Hill 2 will keep original voice cast along side with the new ones by Mary Elizabeth McGlynn and Troy Baker on the main roles. However, Silent Hill 3 doesn’t get the same luck and will only have the new voice cast.

8- March 2012 is announced as the “Silent Month” with three releases, Silent Hill: Downpour on 13 March, HD Collection on 20 March, and Book of Memories which had its release date scheduled to the end of the month, however it was delayed to an uncertain date.

9- Silent Hill Downpour gets positive reviews but the HD Collection has been a fiasco.

10- In the meanwhile Silent Hill HD Collection recieves two patches to solve some of the major problems of the game, however, this second patch, the most efective one, was only released on Playstation 3 console.

11 – We finally get a trailer for the upcoming movie Silent Hill: Revelation 3D as well as a clip from the movie revealing the well known nurses from the first movie.

12- We keep getting some screenshots for the upcoming Silent Hill: Book of Memories, as well as its soundtrack, released before the game itself…

13- It was confirmed that Universal Horror Nights will feature a Silent Hill attraction, which marks the first time Universal picks a videogame to adapt on the event.

For one year, I wrote 191 posts, making a total of 17 pages on the site. Everyday is a good day for getting Silent Hill news, and it is the main goal of this place. However I must also refere other sites that build the Silent Hill community, providing news with quality that influenced the creation of this blog.
Make sure you visit them all, if you haven’t yet!

Alchemilla Hospital
Silent Hill Historical Society
Silent Haven
Silent Hill Memories

As for the future, unfortunately can’t predict it, however I hope that you keep trusting and following Inner Fear.wordpress to get the latest Silent Hill news!

Thank you for this great year!
