* The whole of the Otherworld hospital. There are barely any enemies in it, but the level itself is enough to give you nightmaresnightmares.


* The whole opening of Homecoming is scary as well. You awake to find yourself strapped on a gurney with doctors standing over you. Suddenly the lights go out and the siren begins. The doctors flee, one of them into the hallway opposite to you. Through the flickering lights, the dirty windows and the swinging doors, you hear the sound of something coming...something big. The doctor in the hallway screams and is lifted up by an unseen force. It's pretty obvious who it is now. And you're finally given the option of struggling free from the restraints. Also, on subsequent playthroughs, make a note that A) You're seeing the sacrifices, and B) One of the nurses/doctors looks A LOT like Alex's dad.

* The bosses in said game are some of the most bizarre and horrifying in the series. Especially considering how the bosses came to be. Such as Sepulcher (boy buried alive), Scarlet Fitch (girl dismembered alive), Asphyxia (girl who suffocated) and Amnion (drowned). It's a pretty gruesome story, and the fact they decide to kill their parents, the one who made them that way in the first place, as sacrifices is pretty disturbing, even if it ''is'' an act of PayEvilUntoEvil LaserGuidedKarma.

* After you cut the electricity, you're ready to go running back to the prison, and the game itself leads you there with a lot of monsters, but if you stay in the street outside of the power plant, you will realize that a) The streets of Silent Hill have never been darker -- ''think about that''. b) All hell actually broke loose and Schism, Ferals Lurkers, and even the ocassional smog are out there to get you, and if you don't have the bonus weapon, YOU WILL DIE.
* The BigBad of the game is outright heinous. Judge Magaret Holloway reveals her true color as an utterly remorseles KnightTemplar who tries to justify her actions of murdering her youngest daughter, Nora, by suffocation. The flashback shows through Nora's perspective, as the poor girl struggling and crying in despair. Her mother, on the other hand, tries to choke her right in front of her flesh and blood. Judge Holloway also shows no empathy mentioning her daughter's death, unlike Mayor Bartlett and Dr. Fitch who both shows remorse and sadness over their actions. She then blames Alex's father for everything due to unable to sacrifice his own son, so she decides to do the work on her own, before trying to use a drill and give Alex a slow demise. Considering Nora's death cause, FridgeHorror ensues when you links Judge Holloway's occupation, Nora's death of suffocation and the noose, which is one of the most notable forms of execution...
