    INTRODUCTION
    ----------------------------------
    
    Welcome to a brief FAQ regarding the sought after Silent Hill DVD titled 
    'Lost Memories - The Art & Music of Silent Hill'. It has come to my attention
    that many questions have been asked regarding what this dvd actually is and 
    what it consists of. I have received many emails regarding this, so in response
    (and to finally give everyone who wants to know an answer!), I have created
    this FAQ.
    
    Let's see what the DVD offers us Silent Hill fans.......
    
    
    Q) What region is the DVD?
    
    A) The DVD is region 2. It originates from Japan, but can also work in region
    2 countries such as the UK, rest of Europe etc. Otherwise, you are going to
    have to buy some sort of device to allow you to play it in a non-region 2
    country or get a chipped dvd player. If you're from the USA, sorry guys, you're
    region 1, but my advice just before still applies.
    
    
    Q) Is it a double disc presentation?
    
    A) No, just the one disc.
    
    
    Q) Is it all in Japanese?
    
    A) No, the title menus are all in English and navigation is easy. Even the
    trailers are all in English as you would expect to see them in the European
    game. No language barriers here folks.

    Trailers
    --------------------------------------
    
    A) 4 Trailers from Silent Hill available:
    
    OPENING 
    (the cool intro from the game, which is like a montage of the 
    game and end with Harry crashing the Jeep. Has the now famous SH music.)
    
    E3 1998 
    (early showing of the game. Another montage, like a rolling demo
    of the game with spliced ingame footage and fmv. Shows the demon children which 
    didn't make it into the final game, and a couple of seconds scene showing 
    Cybil's motorcycle crashing over an embankment without her on it. 
    Very cool video,and has some music running over the top which never made it 
    into the game and sounds just awesome. Silent Hill trademark insignia not 
    present).
    
    TGS 1998 AUTUMN 
    (now has the SH music we all know and love, another 
    montage of the game which is pretty close to the game's actual intro fmv. 
    Mainly all fmv,with a few seconds of ingame stuff near the end. Demon children 
    now gone. Insignia of title now shown). 
    
    UFO END 
    (shows the 'humourous' ending from the game which involved 
    aliens. It's in the old 1950's style, comic book style with Japanese subtitles, 
    but still English speaking. Bizarre retro alien theme tune as well a scredits 
    roll Star Wars style).
    
    
    B) 5 Trailers from Silent Hill 2 available:
    
    OPENING 
    (one of the best SH & SH2 FMV's in the series, this is the intro to the game,
    a montage of movie clips with the classic 'Theme of Laura'.
    Opens with the prison cell scene between Maria and James as he meets her
    again, then the music kicks in. Shows certain scenes not in the game, like
    Laura kicking Eddie who is resting beside a van, and James carrying the 
    lifeless corpse of Maria through the shadowy prison. Merges Mary/Maria clips,
    sets the story and haunting ambience of SH2, introduces all the characters.
    Basically awesome 'best of' which end with Maria propositioning James in the
    prison).
    
    TGS 2000 AUTUMN
    (Japense subtitles break up the scenes. Opens on the misty lake and with lone 
    and forlorn James rowing across in a boat. SH2 insignia opens. There's no 
    music played, errie silence, like a humming. Shows James's first encounter 
    with a monster and the radio. Then 'Theme of Laura' gently begins as James 
    examines himself in the mirror at the roadside restroom. Broken up with 
    clips of Pyramid Head molesting other demon monsters. Ends with a melancholy 
    and haunting pan of the empty decaying restroom as credits come up, theme 
    stops).
    
    TGS 2001 SPRING
    (Scene with Laura on the wall, James asking who she is. Theme of Laura 
    (Reprise) begins which is more gentle in ambience, we see Mary talk about the 
    town, Angela saying to James "Lost?", first meeting with Maria and then James
    asks "Is it dangerous?'. Music stops, monstrous screeching of Pyramid Head 
    starts, dragging his BIG SWORD, metal scraping. We get a few of these
    disturbing flashes of monsters James will come across, a a silhouette scene
    of Pyramid Head molesting monsters in the Hotel [not in game]. Other music
    begins, and another montage of clips of James's experiences start and proper
    'Theme of Laura' song kicks in, words of "she was waiting for you" flash
    on screen at the same time, later picture goes into black and white, last scene
    is Pyramid Head molestation scene and screen turns white, Laura says the
    Lord's Prayer).
    
    E3 2001
    (another montage of clips, mainly movie once again. Nice trailer showing off
    the movement of the monsters in game and the genral musteries of the story).
    
    UFO END
    (the 'humourous' ending of the game. Aliens land once again, except Harry from 
    the first game is with them. They zap James with their laser guns and take him
    away.)
    
    
    C) Six Trailers from Silent Hill 3 available:
    
    OPENING
    
    E3 2002
    
    TGS 2002 AUTUMN
    
    GAMERS DAY
    
    E3 2003
    
    YOU'RE NOT HERE
    (excellent video to the Melissa Williams SH OST classic. Has the main character
    of SH3 Heather, lip sync the vocals to the song as she walk around a white
    background, with the occassional movie clip from the game breaking it up).

    The remaining part for this guide will detail as much as possible what pictures
    are available for the relevant sections. It will then finish the remaining two
    sections on the DVD (the weird and cool videos). Then I'll do a brief review
    of the DVD and where you can get it. I'll do some before Xmas, but it will
    probably be finished a little after.
