** Perhaps most disturbing is the audio diaries. Apparently, once the populace started to revolt against Ryan, he had many parts of Rapture quartered off, one place being the park. You come across a series of audio diaries from a teacher leading a field trip when the park was closed off. You get to follow along as she and all the students slowly die of starvation.
*** Although, it's implied that (some of) the children did survive, as the teacher and some other adults [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming gave them all their food]]. What happened to the children afterwards, though, is probably not worth speculating on...

** Add to that that another audio diary from the boy's mother (and yet another one on the website) imply her husband and the boy's father was taken away to be made into a Big Daddy...it's possible.
*** You discover the fate of the father in a diary in the cells of Inner Persephone. He... [[DrivenToSuicide escaped]].

*** Somewhat mitigated by the fact that, after playing the first game, it seems likely that the programming persists after the Little Sisters are rescued ([[spoiler: the ones that you escort around still find your appearance as a Big Daddy beautiful, and apparently still want to harvest corpses, despite no longer having their ADAM slug]]). This, of course, brings up a lot of questions about what life would be like [[spoiler: on the surface for the ones that you have the option of rescuing]]. Coupled with the fact that their programming starts to decay as they get older and that it can lead to insanity if it's not been deliberately broken, this gives a new dimension to [[spoiler: the good endings to both games. Even after leaving Rapture, the Sisters aren't out of the woods yet. However, the ending of the first game shows the little sisters growing up. They seem to adjust to it just fine.]]

* The Big Sister! No matter how many times they signal their presence with that high pitched scream, it never loses its effectiveness. You'll still be madly scrambling about, trying to set up a perimeter for their imminent arrival.

* Early in the game the player comes across a photo reading "Rapture's best and brightest 1952". Who's on it? Tenenbaum, Cohen, Alexander, Ryan, Lamb, and Suchong. Tenenbaum looking nervous and childlike, Cohen looking oddly [[UncannyValley warped]], Alexander distant and unfocussed, Ryan [[DeathGlare glaring at the camera]], Lamb smiling calmly, and Suchong utterly indifferent. In other words it perfectly captures everything that makes each character scary. Talk about a picture being worth a thousand words.

** Just looking at what happened to the Crawlers is horrifying; they're barely human anymore with their elongated heads and arms, their huge feet with just ''4'' big toes, and their constant misery of hearing voices in their heads and killing people to get them to stop. Using Hynotize 3 on them implies that they get hypnotized by Lamb and what they say is a little heart breaking.

* The physical appearance of Splicers in general is much more disturbing than in the first game. They look like portions of their flesh have become unmoored from where they should be, and now are hanging down and bulging out with skin stretched over to contain it. And most of them do not wear masks now. [[SarcasmMode Lovely.]]

* The physical appearance of Splicers in general is much more disturbing than in the first game. Their faces look half-melted, like something you would see with a serious burn victim who survived and the flesh healed as much as it could. They look like portions of their flesh have become unmoored swollen and detached from where they should be, and now are hanging down and bulging out with skin stretched over to contain it. And most of them do not wear masks now. [[SarcasmMode Lovely.]]

* The look on Eleanor's face when Lamb forces Delta to shoot himself brings up a [[FridgeHorror tragic and disturbing thought.]] Little Sisters are conditioned to view the world as an idyllic paradise. They see corpses as angels, blood as roses, splicers as elegantly dressed men and women, and Big Daddies as knights in golden armor. So what was she seeing that made her recoil like that?

** One particular moment of Fridge Horror is, while making your way towards the first little sister ward, you can come across a room with a dead Baby Jane splicer propped up in a chair, facing the corner. If that's not creepy enough, the walls facing her have been [[PsychologicalHorror clawed black]].
