The Japanese DVD and Blu-ray release of Silent Hill. The box set includes the main feature, 2 bonus discs with an hour making-of footage and an hour comparison between the movie and game series by the Konami staff, a Blu-ray disc with the original contents of discs one, movie trailers, and Path of Darkness making of feature. I really wish they released something like this in America.
Silent Hill Guide of Chaotic Town: A book with movie and game information. It’s in Japanese but based on the photos and limited English I think it contains:

World of the Movie Silent Hill: Character and story information and a section called “Contrast” which I think compares the game and movie but I’m not sure.
