* AgentScully: Harry and Cybil seem to think Dahlia's words about the darkness covering the town are nothing but gibberish and a result of drug intake. Nevermind the fact that by the time they say it, they are in a foggy, snowy, desert, monster-infested town with all roads cut off and no means of contact with the outside. Furthermore, by the time they say it, Harry has seen the transition to the Otherworld and Cybil had just seen Cheryl walking in thin air.

Konami jumped on the SurvivalHorror bandwagon (created by the success of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil'') with 1999's ''Silent Hill'', the first game of Konami's ''Franchise/SilentHill'' franchise and a far more psychological take on the Survival Horror genre.

In the year 1983, single father Harry Mason and his young daughter Cheryl are driving to the resort town of Silent Hill for a holiday vacation. Suddenly, Harry swerves to avoid a girl standing in the road and [[FrightDeathtrap crashes his car]]. When he regains consciousness, Harry realises he has crashed on the outskirts of Silent Hill, and that [[AdultFear Cheryl has left the car]].

''Silent Hill'' offered a unique "psychological" experience during a period when Survival Horror games relied on "sudden fright" scares and ZombieApocalypse-style action (inspired by the success of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil''). ''Silent Hill's'' production team later produced Sony's ''VideoGame/{{Siren}}'' series, which also relied on a more "psychological" storyline.

** Alessa's old teacher, "K. Gordon," is a reference to SonicYouth bass guitarist Kim Gordon. This is confirmed by the reference to three more teachers who bear the names of "T. Moore", "L. Ranaldo" and "S. Shelley" (Kim's fellow bandmates, Thurston Moore, Lee Ranaldo, and Steve Shelley).

In 1983, as single father Harry Mason and his young daughter Cheryl drive to the resort town of Silent Hill for a holiday vacation, Harry swerves to avoid a girl standing in the road and [[FrightDeathtrap crashes his car]]. After he regains consciousness, Harry discovers that his car crashed near the outskirts of Silent Hill -- and Cheryl has disappeared. Harry stumbles into Silent Hill in his search for his daughter, and he soon finds out that the supposed resort town appears to have no living residents around.

Harry still manages to meet several people during his search: Cybil Bennett, a policewoman from a neighboring town investigating Silent Hill; Dahlia Gillespie, an elderly antiques dealer who offers to help Harry; Michael Kaufmann, a mysterious doctor who only seems intent on survival; Lisa Garland, a terrified nurse who implores Harry to protect her; and Alessa, a strange teenage girl who always seems to show up wherever Harry goes.

When an air-raid siren goes off in the distance during Harry's search, the sound pierces the perpetual fog that covers the whole town and Silent Hill undergoes a sinister transformation. What awaits Harry when he enters this hellish otherworld?
