Report filed by Jul 29th, 2015

##########################################################
VIII. EASTER EGGS/REFERENCES
##########################################################

********************
52 Diner
********************
SH1 had a Cafe 5 to 2, also where you meet Cybil for the first time.

********************
ALICE IN WONDERLAND
********************
There is a fast food place called Wonderland, which has a giant
mushroom, pictures of the Cheshire cat and Mad Hatter, and a
maze on the wall telling you to “follow the white rabbit.”

Additionally, there is a store in the mall called “Tweedledum’s”
which sells children’s clothing. “Newborn to infant – Latest Styles”

Besides the references to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, it may
also refer back to SH1, which had the Alice in Wonderland puzzle
with the colored plates.

********************
Balkan Club
********************
SH1 had Balkan Church, but in SHSM, it’s a nightclub. This is also
sort of reminiscient of SH2, where Maria works at Heaven’s Night.

********************
BIRDS/MUSIC PUZZLE
********************
SH1 had the memo “A tale of birds without a voice,” referring to the
piano puzzle. SHSM has a puzzle incorporating both birds and a piano
of sorts as well.

********************
LAW & ORDER
********************
Debatable, but when Cybil has the shoulder-length dark hair, she
looks a lot like Mariska Hargitay’s character on SVU.

********************
BUTTERFLIES
********************
In SH1, there were a lot of butterflies in Alessa’s room.
Butterflies and moths were also a theme in SH2. In SHSM,
Harry sometimes tells Lisa that Cheryl loves bugs and
collects butterflies. The photos on the wall of the bordello
show women dressed in leather and wearing butterfly wings,
taking Cheryl’s hobby of collecting “pretty bugs” and
sexualizing them. There is also a memento called “Pinned
Beauty.” When you enter the bordello, you will also notice
a bunch of child’s drawings on the wall. Harry comments that
everybody loves their kids. They are vaguely sexualized in
nature as well, pictures of women’s legs in fishnets, women
in lingerie, etc.

Butterflies are also on the poster outside the Honey Trap.
A woman from the back, looking over her shoulder, 2 butterflies,
blue and purple.

The drawings in the brothel (upstairs room, end of hallway).
The most obvious are the drawings of semi nude women in lingerie,
sort of a childlike take on the pictures on the wall in the
main area of the place. There are also dogs, though. One has
what could be a dog being run over and a child screaming nearby.
The other has a large happy dog with wings, flying over clouds.
A reference to the dog being killed, perhaps going to heaven?
The other figures in the “run over” drawing are odd. One is
a stick figure, one is a female stick figure which is nude and
has breasts. It doesn’t look like a car, though, it looks like
each is on a table of some sort; it almost reminds me of the
end boss in SH2 or something, but more like a table. Another
drawing is of a snake.

Butterflies mounted in a frame in the bear room. If you get
the less-bloody lodge, the first room has a frame to the left
with 8 butterflies mounted on it, just like the butterflies
on Alessa’s wall. There are also butterflies in Cheryl’s
room in SHSM.

********************
CONTRA
********************
There is a Contra arcade game in the cinema. If you look
at it, Harry will comment about “some real classics here.”

********************
Dangerous Chemicals
********************
There is a cupboard with chemicals inside which you can’t pick up,
possibly like the ones Harry used in SH1 (Hydrochloric acid for the
Old Man’s Hand Puzzle).

********************
DEAD DOG POSSE
********************
This is graffiti scrawled near the playground, and probably refers
back to SH1, where a dog’s decapitated head was being used as a
basketball behind Cafe 5 to 2. It’s possible that it only refers to
the dead dog referenced in this game, though, I suppose.

********************
Ernest Hemingway
********************
Hemingway brand cigarettes in Cybil’s glove compartment.

********************
Green Lion
********************
In SH1, there is an antique shop called Green Lion. In SHSM,
there is a pawn shop with the same name.

********************
HOLES
********************
Holes and very long staircases or ramps into the abyss have been used
a lot in the series especially in SH2. James jumps into a lot of holes,
and there is a very long green hallway leading from the Historical
Society to the prison. This resembles a long, winding blue hall in SHSM,
which is followed by 2 leaps into the abyss.

********************
INCUBUS
********************
There is a drawing of the Incubus from SH1 on the wall in the school.

********************
Indian Runner
********************
This store is in SH1 and SHSM.

********************
Infinite Jest
********************
This memento, which you find in the box in Lisa’s apartment, has
“Ophelia” written inside. This refers tothe character in Hamlet,
who drowns. The memento is an ugly green ring with a skull and
crossbones, which also reminds one of the ugly ring in SH2.

********************
Lakeview Hotel
********************
If you call the number for the hotel, it will suggest that you make
Lakeview your “special place.” (SH2 reference)

********************
Lisa
********************
In SH1, Lisa mentions drugs in her diary, when she is hallucinating
and feeling sick. She says she needs the drug. In SH0, she also seems
to be on drugs and to get them from Dr. Kaufman. She also dies and
bleeds a lot from the head in both SH1 and SHSM. When Harry goes to her
apartment, she asks him to get her a pill from the medicine cabinet,
mentioning that one of the perks of being a nurse is self-medication.

********************
GOLDFINGER
********************
There is a cat food box called “Pussy Galore.”

********************
Mother Dearest
********************
This is the name of a movie playing at the cinema (though it changes based
on your actions. This is one of the possible titles, though) and I think it
has to refer to “Mommy Dearest,” the book about Joan Crawford written by her
daughter. There was also a movie version starring Faye Dunaway.To summarize
these, Joan Crawford was having trouble concieving and ended up adopting her
daughter, Christina. She alledgedly abused her, slept around a lot, drank a
lot, and put her career before her daughter. How does this relate? In a few
ways. First, the obvious: Cheryl villifies Dahlia to a great extent.We can’t
be completely sure of all the reasons for this, but their relationship
is not the greatest. Second, the alcohol themes. Harry may be an abusive
drunkard, depending on your ending; Cheryl probably drinks and uses drugs.
They both apparently sleep around a lot.

********************
Mr. Gordon
********************
The teachers in SH1 were named after members of Sonic Youth. The teacher in
SHSM takes his name from Kim Gordon, as well. The house you go to after leaving
the school in SH1 is the K. Gordon house. It refers back to SH1. Interestingly,
it is this teacher in SHSM that’s being harassed. In SH1, Alessa was harassed
by students, and the teacher felt bad for her. Here, the teacher is getting
harassing calls from students because of rumors regarding Cheryl.

********************
Snow White
********************
SH3 had some fairy tale references, and SHSM has billboard signs for “SnoWhite,”
which appears to be a tooth-whitening product, near Wonderburger.

********************
TOOKIE
********************
Tookie is the Toluca Mall mascot, and looks quite a bit
like Toucan Sam, the Fruit Loops cereal mascot. You see
him a few times in the game. There is an outdoor billboard
with him on it, then a giant statue inside the mall. He is
referenced in the phone conversation in the voicemail you
get near the gumball machine puzzle. The child’s favorite
colors are the colors in his beak. There is a plush animal
of him on a shelf. He is on a sign telling you to report
suspicious activity to security.

********************
TVs
********************
There have been a lot of TVs behaving strangely in the series as well.
When Harry enters the Shopping Center in SH1, he sees Cheryl and a lot
of occult symbols on a wall of televisions. You also have to use a TV
and VCR to view a tape in SH1. TVs/VCRs feature in a very important
scene in SH2 as well, when James is in the hotel room. In SH3, there is
a TV that turns on in the mall. SH4 has a TV haunting.

SHSM also uses TVs to good purpose. There is the floating down into the
abyss scene where you see a lot of videotape images of Cheryl and Harry,
and then the TV/couch room in one of the nightmare areas which plays a
tape, and of course the opening segment at the amusement park, which is
being constantly rewound and replayed throughout the game. There is a
strong connection between memory (or loss of memory) and videotapes in
the SH games. SHSM also has a store where you have to interact with a
TV to solve a puzzle (security monitor). The endings show you taped
scenes after the end credits.

********************
TWIN PEAKS
********************
The scene where Michele is in the High School gym singing in front
of red curtains is reminiscient of Twin Peaks, which had a lot of
scenes of red curtains and many dream-type sequences had stages with
red curtains. It especially reminds me of the bit with Julee Cruise
on stage, singing in front of red curtains.

Diner 52 has Cherry Pie as a special, listed on the green chalkboard,
possibly as another Twin Peaks reference. There is something else
about fish specials, and a drawing of a guy in hat saying something,
but I can’t read what it is yet. It also has a neon sign for Cherry
Pie.

The red curtains in Lakefront Souvenirs also remind me of Twin Peaks,
as well as possibly the two sets of legs near Valtiel in SH3’s Chapel.

********************
Wheelchair
********************
After pulling Harry out of the Lake, Cybil revives him and puts him in
a wheelchair. SH1 and SH3 had a lot of wheelchairs, in reference to
Alessa.

#######################################################
X. STREET NAMES
#######################################################
Starting with the original game, all the Silent Hill games have
had street names referring to famous authors, etc., usually
horror writers. The Book of Lost Memories gives some insight into this.

********************
Pharos Tower
********************
“Pharos” is Greek for lighthouse, so this is just another
lighthouse reference.

********************
Shelley Rd.
********************
Mary Shelley, author of Frankenstein. There is also a Frankstein
toy memento that you can get from the machine in the cinema.

********************
Levin St.
********************
Ira Levin. Best known for writing Rosemary’s Baby and Stepford Wives.
Levin Street was also an important area in SH1, because it was the
only unlocked house in the first area with the doghouse in front of it.

********************
Matheson St.
********************
Richard Matheson. He is best known for writing I Am Legend and
several episodes of the Twilight Zone.

********************
Bachman Rd.

Midwich High School. These all refer to John Wyndham’s novel The
Midwich Cuckoos and its film adaptation, Village of the Damned.
SHSM also has the football team called the Cuckoos as well as a
statue of Wyndham in the center of the school courtyard.

********************
