Silent Hill 3 Circle Room Analysis

The circle room in Silent Hill 3 is a room in which the wall has an animated texture that slowly becomes a circle, before clearing up. Herein I will argue that the imagery is related to pregnancy.

Circle As Ovum

The underlying theme of Silent Hill 3 is pregnancy, primarily Heather’s pregnancy. As such, the circle symbolry ont he wall actually represents this underlying condition.

Firstly, the wall is covered in a fleshy texture which fades away to reveal a series of circles. A heap of dots then travel about as the circles grow and eventually are absorbed by the circles which grow expotentially until they escape the confines of the wall. The idea is that the little dots represent sperm which is absorbed by the egg. The egg then grows larger and larger.
