Silent Hill 3 “You’re not here” (Heather)

Silent Hill 3 “You’re not here”
The woman that sings this creepy song is Mary Elizabeth McGlynn. She’s actually a long-time videogame voice actress. She sings a lot of the erriy songs in the SH franchise.
The point of the video was to show off the voice/mouth matching software, which was just starting to get off the ground. (It was kind of used for MGS2 and extensively in MGS3)
-There is a shot of Heather, the main character, sitting in the wheelchair. The game has tons of shots of wheelchairs throughout the story, but there are no shots of Heather being in a wheelchair. Some believe this was deleted footage. It should be noted that the Wheelchair theme was also in SH1 too. And SH1 and SH3 are directly connected.
-The heather character looks into the camera a lot in the music video, which is creepy moments, because there are only a couple moments in the game when she does that.
-This video also shows off the weary designs of Heather. Note the discoloration of the skin around the eyes. It has always been hinted that all the heroes in the game are already dead and are going through judgment in purgatory. However, the game never fully comes out and says that.
-As I said before, this video was meant to show off the technology and enhanced models that were used in Silent Hill 2 to Silent Hill 3. They added more detail to them in Silent Hill 3. It is interesting to note that many of the locations from Silent Hill 2 are reused for SH3.
I always felt Heather was one of better written characters in horror genre.
