The psychological horror series Silent Hill appears to be on a return to its roots with the next entry, a dark, stormy and flashlight-lit scarefest that's very different from the more cerebral and most recent entry, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories.

The Silent Hill trademarks are intact in this E3 trailer, with a town that transforms from dilapidated, monster-filled hellhole to a rusted, metallic monster-filled hellhole. Even the prison jumpsuits transform in the game they're still calling Silent Hill 8.

Developer Vatra Games and Konami are promising the next Silent Hill game will hit the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 sometime in 2011, telling the sad story of one Murphy Pendleton.
