since I’m on a SH kick I remember a while back someone was bashing 3’s monsters, saying they weren’t creative enough and they were all basically the ones from 1.
That’s the fucking point.
I mean the monsters are based off the same person’s psyche. While in 3 they are Cheryl/Alessa reborn (Heather) they are still monsters from Cheryl/Alessa’s memories, though Heather probably doesn’t remember them. For instance, she probably doesn’t remember the fairy tale that the split head from 1 is based off of, but it was embedded in her subconscious, so instead it became the split worm in the mall in 3 for her.
And the new monsters are of course from her new encounters in her life. Insane cancers, closers, numb bodies, slurpers, scrapers.
Now, the humanoids in 3 hold a greater significance. You see, At one point, Vincent makes a “joke”. Vincent calls Heather out for “taking joy in spilling their blood” Heather asks if he means the monsters, to which he replies:
“Monsters? They look like monsters to you?”
(This is by far my favorite video game quote by the way.)
Heather is taken aback and freaks out at the thought of having killed people, when Vincent then says “Relax, it was only a joke!”
I believe that the humanoid monsters are actually cult members. They’ve been transformed by the town. I mean, look at Lisa from Silent Hill 1. She turned into a monster.
I mean, Leonard Wolf was a person, and he was transformed into a monster somehow.
And even the other monsters could have been cult members.
It’s not something Heather could ever prevent, so in reality Heather can only move forward and deal with it as best she can. She’s going to kill Claudia. That’s that.
I feel like that alone tells you a lot about Heather.
She’s one bad ass bitch.
FUCK IT’S 7
you mean up so late…?
I watched that shit like crazy when I was little, but the only episode I have deeply embedded in my mind was the last one.
That cartoon was so dark. And the Joker. Damn.
oh my god that is literally the exact opposite of what that music is supposed to do it makes me want to cry and turn on all the light idek if I could even be calm knowing it was being played in the room next to me
XD I know it’s really weird, but music really has a hold on me. Just the ability to be completely submerged in a song, and not give a fuck about the world. Letting your problems seep away as music just replaces it all. I just love that feeling. And Silent Hill gets me there.
I love the atmosphere. I love listening to songs that completely absorb you. The creepiness just settles in and I just… feel better.
