Because it's a horror game.

The hanged men could be explained in two ways:

1) Burning was not the only means of execution during the Salem Witch Trails. Hanging was also used.

2) Also, or perhaps extending from the above point, Alessa is executing Order members in her reality in this fashion. The Order is hunting Alessa, hence they could be viewed as witch-hunters.

i think they are representitive/are members of the cult
once the stablility of the town whent to the shiter (so to speak)
Alessa got her revenge on the Clut's members
or could be representitive of death, or the disire for death Alessa had
i like to thing they are the Cults members hoever
i just think Alessa should have her own back on them

but

it is horror and they just just as easly be there to scare you, nothing more

Because. No other reason, just because.

None of the accused witches in Salem were burned. They were all hanged except for one man who was pressed to death with stones. The European witch trials were primarily the ones with the burnings.

Wow, when I look at the image of the hanged men. It's like I have never seen them when I played SH1. I feel like it's my first time to see them, yet, I feel like I saw them... :?
Gotta play it all over again to see myself... :|

Think of Italy — which reminds me of California in so many ways — and its chronic inability to form a government. That’s California, with even better food and no parliamentary system.
....somewhere in Italy a contract was put out on the life of the article's author.

Wrong.

Some theorize that the bodies are supposed to be a sacrifice, homage, w/e you want to call it to Valtiel, hence the ceremonial robes.

How could the movie hold insight on what it is in the game...?

I personally think it's there to disturb you.
Cult members? Eh, maybe.

Why do you feel the need to be rude? It's not as if he doesn't have valid points. The hanging bodies may or may not have any symbolic meaning as far as the game designers were concerned, but regardless of what you believe there's no reason to insult someone for making a suggestion.

wait, how would that mean he doesn't have a life or girlfriend? I thought it just meant he had a mind......and ideas. Besides i'm sure he does. Plus what he said isn't hard to imagine, especially in silent hill...right?
