  Silent Hill Movie Titled, Located  
Posted 2005-04-25 by Tony Walsh
The upcoming Silent Hill movie will be called "Centralia," according to a recent report in the Brantford Expositor. Brantford, a town in Ontario, Canada, has been selected as one of the locations being used for the movie. You can view numerous shots of Brantford's abandoned downtown area at this gallery set up by Michael "Orneryboy" Lalonde, as well as dressed sets in this gallery at Those familiar with the Silent Hill game series will see Brantford's potential as a location for the creepy movie. Other locations under consideration include Hamilton and St. Thomas, Ontario.

I once heard that there is a huge blob of toxic goo sitting outside of Hamilton in Lake Ontario. Apparently they don't know what to do about it, because to remove it, they'd disturb it and the toxins would spread around the lake. I think that might be an urban legend based on this.

Hey, cool-- insider info! I guess it worked out in Brantford's favour that the downtown area became mostly abandoned. I hope the filmmakers give the whole town free tickets to the movie :)

If you see anything interesting on the set, be sure to let us know!

Tony, are you maybe talking about Randle Reef? It is a blob of coal tar sitting at the bottom of Hamilton Harbour, and as far as I know, they have yet to figure out how to remove it. Last I heard, they were planning on building a structure overtop of it.

Ornery- Your link is broken, but I Googled Randle Reef and I think that's what I was thinking of:

"Randle Reef is located in Hamilton Harbour and is considered to be one of the more complex and highly contaminated sediment sites throughout the Canadian AOCs in the Great Lakes. Randle Reef sediments contain polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in very high concentrations in coal tar." [Hamilton Port Authority]
