The Silent Hills Teaser Isn’t Nearly As Scary When It Glitches Out

I think I speak for everyone when I say that P.T. might as well stand for “Pretty Effin’ Terrifying.” That is, of course, unless things stop working in the demo. Then things get kind of hilarious.

Obviously, if you don’t want to be spoiled on Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro’s teaser for their new horror project, Silent Hills, then you probably shouldn’t read further or watch the videos.

Lisa, the ghost-wife you periodically encounter while navigating the same hallway over and over again in P.T., can totally glitch out when you encounter her, as you can see in the many clips provided by NSX Hosni. And it seems like a number of people have encountered this specific glitch, too:

To Lisa’s credit, going to digital hell means that players put their guards down — and in at least one of these clips, she does a jump scare after glitching out. That jump scare was probably way more horrible than it would have been had it happened naturally.

But overall, heh. I’m glad I didn’t encounter this while playing, else it would have ruined the experience for me a little bit!
