The Monster Lurks is a short memo Harry Mason can find in the original Silent Hill game, located in the Otherworld boys' restroom on the first floor of Midwich Elementary School. It serves no real, informative purpose to Harry; however, the stall where it is located must be entered if the player wishes to retrieve the shotgun, which is located on the ground below a decayed corpse crucified to the wall. If Harry looks to the right, he can observe what is written on the wall in blood.
- Leonard Rhine
- The Monster Lurks
- A character named "Leonard Rhine" is never mentioned in any other Silent Hill installment, leaving his identity entirely unknown. The novelization of the game says Leonard Rhine is an author who focuses on the occult.
- Reading this writing is required to allow Harry to read the Manifestations of Delusions article.
- In the Gillespie house, on the wall that lines the staircase, a photograph can be found that bears a stunning resemblance to the corpse found in the stall.
