Every survival horror game needs a haunting soundtrack and it sounds like Silent Hill: Downpour will have one. Konami has just announced that Daniel Licht, the composer for the hit television show Dexter, will be writing the soundtrack for the next installment in the series. Sounds like a good choice to us! The creepy opening theme for Dexter first infected our minds when the show aired in 2006 – and we think Licht can add just the right amount of eeriness to Silent Hill’s famously foggy atmosphere.
