The Mystery Behind Silent hill
The Silent Hill’s foggy, ashen atmosphere gives it with a creepy vibe. As Rose explores the town, she finds three different sides of Silent Hill. The first one is the real world with a real town set visited by Chris and Gucci.
The second one, i.e. the foggy town is the one in which Rose and Sybil are present. While, the third one is the dark side of the town, which brings out the horrific monsters. The other two dimensions are related to the town’s history, which is as follows.
Back in the sixties, the town was under the influence of some sort of cult, with Christabella as their head. The fire was the only means to purify anyone. Her sister, Dahlia had an illegitimate child, Alessa, whose father was unknown. So, the entire town declared Alessa as a witch, and one fine day while escaping from her bullies, she was raped by the janitor in her school toilet.
This further enhanced other’s impure thinking, to which Dahlia caved in and agreed to exorcise her daughter. But, soon she realized her mistake and tried to contact the police. But, it was too late, as the town people had burnt Alessa alive. And amidst this, the structure to which she was bound also collapsed, leading to burning the church and the whole town.
Finally, the cops arrived and retrieved Alessa, but she was severely injured. When in pain, Alessa was visited by Devil to help her revenge against the injustice. Alessa agreed and thus many entities were created in her form.
The devil took her remaining innocence and made baby Sharon, who then went to her adopted parents. As Sharon is related to Alessa, so she dreams about the spooky city. The Devil then made the 2nd form, i.e. the foggy dimension, where he along with Alessa and all those people who wronged her stayed.
Now that you know the reason behind Sharon’s dream, let’s explain the ending for you.
The Ending Explained Of Silent Hill
As Sharon goes missing, Rose searches for her and confronts the Devil. Devil explains the entire story of the town and Alessa, mentioning that he has hidden her body to enter the church and complete his deal.
Rose enters the church just in time when the cult is preparing to burn Sharon after burning Sybil. Christabella stabs Rose, leading to escape of Devil, and creates havoc. The lone survivor is Dahlia, as she is Alessa’s mother.
Rose and Sharon wait for the storm to get over, and asks her daughter to keep her eyes closed. But, Sharon opens her eyes and witnesses Alessa smiling at her, after which she faints. Both of them then leave the town and reach home, but Chris couldn’t see them as they are still in the other dimension.
This means that Sharon is possessed by Alessa, and in reality, both Rose and Sharon haven’t left the fog dimension. The only reason for exit from the Silent Hill is the devil’s job is over there, and now he wants to wreak havoc somewhere else.
And Rose is collateral damage, still stuck between life and death. As Sharon is a part of Alessa, so he followed her, but now he awaits someone else to make a deal with him to create havoc.
