Noisy Hill is known probably only to the fans of the legendary game series Silent Hill. It's a must see for all the fans that haven't seen it yet because it's without any doubt the best parody of game series ever.
Official youtube channel:
The parodies of Silent Hill 2, 3, 4 and Origins are all available.
Someone made a perfect description of it on the internet, be noted that this is copy/pasted from the other source.
The brain child of IlikeWaxingOwls, this utterly surreal series can best be described as "Silent Hill Abridged" and he manages the feat of taking a series noted for being dark and disturbing and turning it into something... hilarious and disturbing.So far Silent Hill 2, Silent Hill 3 and Silent Hill 4 have been abridged in their entirety while Silent Hill Origins is in the works right now. The creator has also said he'll be abridging Homecoming as well at some point, though it's unlikely Arcade will be abridged due to it not currently being available for home consoles. A common element of the series is making fun of the entire set up, though the creator is a fan of the games. For example the Borley Haunted Mansion is turned into a hilarious experience as the unseen tour narrator comes off as bored and depressed and starts talking about antique furniture for no reason. It also often features many in-jokes for fans of the series to enjoy, most of them appearing in Noisy Hill 4. It provides exmaples of:
- Alternate Character Interpretation: Henry's slightly creepy voyeur habits around Eileen are blown up to insane proportions and his indifferent nature is changed to show him as an uncaring jerk ass.
- Additionally, Douglas's questionable skills are mocked incessantly.
- Catch Phrase: Douglas likes to remind everyone that he's a detective at every possible oppurtunity.
- Also, "Pillows" for James.
- If You Know What I Mean: Travis's trucker friend even says the title of this trope at one point, hinting that 'a girl or two could go a long way' in solving his sleeping problems. Naturally, Travis doesn't catch on.
- Jerk Ass: James Sunderland is very much this throughout the first Noisy Hill. Perhaps the greatest moment of Jerkass-ness comes when he's talking to Angela on the burning staircase
- The Ditz: Henry. Just Henry. After standing around while Richard is slowly electrocuted by a makeshift electric chair, what does he say?
- Then there's his belief that the Water Prison is a prison for criminal water...
- Breaking The Fourth Wall: Henry is freaked out that parts of the game he's in are in first person.
- Character Exaggeration: James Sunderland's smothering Mary with a pillow is turned into a psychotic compulsion to do so to everyone. Henry's cluelessness is so great he often comes across as the long lost twin of Sailor Moon Abridged Mina.
- Running Gag: Heh. Pillows.
- Crowning Moment Of Funny: James, having just killed Eddie, utters the actual game dialouge "Mary...did you really die three years ago?". And then...
- Eileen: (Upon seeing the giant version of her head Henry says he made) Oh my god, what's wrong with you?
- Alessa: (Off screen) Ah!
- Everythings Better With Princesses: Heather randomly shifts into her Princess Heart costume, usually at the most dramatically inappropriate time.
- Genre Savvy: Eddie, of all people, points out that James comment about how it's "Not safe" is ridiculously obvious, given that they're in a survival horror game.
- Douglas has some pretty savvy moments himself:
- And a little later in the same scene:
- Genre Blindness: Heather seems to have no idea that the things around her are dangerous and indeed sometimes seems to barely understand what's going on around her.
- Horrible Judge Of Character: Douglas embodies this trope. "She seems nice enough...once you get past the whole cult aspect of her life".
- Lampshade Hanging: James sometimes does this, mostly on how bad some of his dialogue is.
- No Fourth Wall: Eddie apparently knows they're in a survival horror game.
- We Could Have Avoided All This: Claudia's entire plan.
- Cloud Cukoo Lander: Vincent. Very much so.
- Vincent: Am I looking at you, am I looking at the wall? Who knows, that's just one of my many powers.
