Six Things that make Silent Hill so Wonderfully Scary

"Silent Hill" came out in 1999 and since then the franchise has spawned four games that were true to it's core themes and way too many that aren't. The last three to come out, "Silent Hill: Homecoming," "Silent Hill: Shattered Memories" and "Silent Hill: Downpour" pale in comparison to the original three installments. It's like the game developers read the really, really crappy Silent Hill comics they put out and decided that they were so brilliant that they just had to imitate them.

Character Autopsy: The Walking Dead's Shane Walsh is a Shakespeare Villain

Something's rotten in the state of Georgia Horatio. And it's not the zombies. It's Shane Walsh.

In an interview with AMC, Jon Bernthal stated that he feels that Shane shares traits with three characters from Shakespeare's Othello.  He has Iago's villainy, Cassio's nobility, and Othello's jealousy."

For those of you that don't know, the works of William Shakespeare have a huge influence on Western culture. Shakespeare's complex characters have a depth of emotion similar to those found in people you'd meet in real life. The Walking Dead's Shane Walsh is, like a Shakespeare villain, a very complex character with a deep seated fear that drives every single choice he makes; whether it is pre-meditated or not.
