The Silent Hill series is perhaps best known for its unusual monsters, some of which could be classified as mannequin, or mannequin adjacent. One scene from Silent Hill 2 really stands out where iconic villain Pyramid Head rapes one of the mannequin creatures that only a few rooms prior had been trying their best to bludgeon James’s face in with their blunt limbs. It’s weird, more than a little unnerving and wholly unforgettable, but just in case you somehow did manage to forget it, feel free to experience the scene again in the above video.
Speaking of Silent Hill, Insanity, or Insanidade, is easily one of the scariest indie horror games I’ve ever played, right up there with the likes of Amnesia: The Dark Descent. This is partly due to the obvious influence Konami’s legendary survival horror series had on the game, and particularly so with the monsters you encounter.
In it, you’re tasked with exploring a series of levels that get progressively more difficult and/or more terrifying. In this video — part two in a series of three — you see me at my worst, after the game had successfully managed to wear down my already fragile psyche.
