    The actual canon of Silent Hill has nothing to do with the town of Centralia; it was merely referenced for the American-made film. Silent Hill is based directly on a Minnesota town called Stillwater, which has sadly seen many drastic and modernizing changes over the last decade at the hands of millennial hipsters. Stillwater, much like Silent Hill, seemed to be mired in a slower, simpler time, but with modern necessities. Even the prison level of Silent Hill 2 is a direct reference to the historical society building in Stillwater that used to be a prison during the same time frame stated in documents found during gameplay. The similarities don't stop there, and I highly recommend reading up on Stillwater, Minnesota to see an endless line of parallels to Silent Hill.

    I am still planning on going there, mainly for its geology and mine history as it’s a truly interesting place.

    I went through there in November this year - almost everything is gone aside from 2 houses and cemeteries. I was hoping for a bit more eeriness, but the diverted highway was pretty cool.

    As a coal county native who lives close by to centralia, I can definitely agree that it’s an eerie place to visit to get a real feel for its backstory, but it’s definitely not worth a long drive if you’re out of the area and only visiting here. Over time, the few buildings left aren’t like you can explore them, seeing as most of them are just the houses left behind, or the church (though I’ve heard of people asking permission to see the inside before too?). The rest of it is really just old roads with roots cracking through them, overgrown grass and trees, and lots and lots of coal hills and piles lol. Out of all the times I’ve been there, I have yet to see any huge amounts of smoke/fog through the town, just little puffs coming out of holes in the ground here and there. IMO the coolest parts about it are the cemetery and graffiti highway, but the rest is kinda hyped up online.
    Don’t wanna speak for everyone’s experience of course though! Still a super cool abandoned town all in all. Just always trying to let people know it’s not as scary and thrilling as the scenery in Silent Hill lol.

    had a chance to visit Centralia with a friend!! definitely worth is,it was a somewhat cold and misty that day so it was literally foggy the entire time ! we could only see maybe around 10-20 feet in front of us,we checked out a couple of the cemeteries, graffiti highway,and what was left of a couple abandoned buildings ,so the timing was perfect for a spooky atmosphere, we did actually see a few people in the town too

    I liked the Silent Hill movie. I like the games, too. The second movie was pure, burning garbage, though.

    Education Blair is so different from normal Blair that it's almost like they're two different people. Educational video Blair seems so much more interested in what she's saying

    Well technically the town only inspired the movies, the games were independent from Centralia

    I don't get it. The game Silent Hill never had a coal mine fire. The mine ran out, causing a loss of jobs and increase of crime in the town, which allowed the cult to make more money via their drug trafficking and recruit more people, as desperate destitutes were more easily influenced.
    Only the movies had the mine fire.

    Sorry to tell you Blaire, but your pyramid bf is cheating on you with a bunch of nurses. And I can tell you the nurses aren't into it

    I'm also a big Pyramid Head fan. Did you know there's a theory saying James became Pyramid Head? It's a pretty interesting one for sure.

    I always wanted to go there. The reason is because I love the Silent Hill games and I love the movies. I remember watching a video where this woman went there and she stuck a thermometer into a crack in the road. It reached up to 100. She also visited the time capsule.

    I would love to see a video about Prip'yat' from you. People left it in such a hurry they just abandoned everything they've had. It's really cool, but also terrifying, especially places like schools and hospitals

    While the movies were heavily inspired by Centralia, the games were more inspired by Stephen King's "The Mist". So it's a massive misconception that the games were inspired by the town. Just thought I'd mention it.

    I remember watching the documentary on this place. It was honestly kind of depressing, listening to the residents who refused to leave talking about this insane phenomenon that effectively obliterated their town, and the ominous persistence in which the fire is consuming the land, slowly encroaching ever closer into city proper until EVERYONE would be forced to leave.

    The fact that Centralia even exists in it's current condition is just baffling. Its history truly makes it seem like something straight out of fiction!
