It is the otherworld. A manifestation of Alessa's anger and
nightmares. Of course there are plenty of otherworldly things
about Silent Hill minus Alessa's creations but for SH1, that would
be the answer to the best of my knowledge. Won't elaborate to much.

Like emptimass said, the Otherworld is a phenomena controlled (or not!) by Alessa. It is a reflection of Alessa's nightmares.

One should also point out that Alessa created the Otherworld to escape from Dahlia. Dahlia can enter Foggy Silent Hill, but she cannot enter the Otherworld, not until Alessa is weakened.

The Seal Of Metratron that Alessa puts up all over town is to spread the Otherworld over the entire area, sealing herself off from Dahlia permanently. Harry can somehow enter both realms, and Dahlia used him to get to Alessa.

He's probably able to enter because of that aspect of Alessa which was Cheryl for seven years, and thus felt protected and loved by him. As such it's only natural that she wouldn't be averse to him entering her world, at least to some degree.

The alternate world is my favorite place of SH. It is a mainfestation of hopelessness, anger, nightmares. All relfected by the memories of the antagonist.

But why is her unconscious reflected as blood & rust? Is she afraid of blood & rust..? I've always wondered why it appeared this way -- why couldn't it appear as a snake or insect swarmed exterior or something?

Who knows... Yeah, she was burned alive right (but not to death). Why isn't it all like burned out or something...?

It looks impressive as it is though.

It's probably all bloody and rusty due to influence from the other parts of Otherworld that were there before Alessa mucked around with it.

No. As has been said, the Otherworld is a manifestation of Alessa's nightmares, fears, emotions, hate, etc. ...In other words, it wasn't there to begin with.

And what's up with everybody being all "zomg i want to live in teh Otherworld"?
Personally, I don't think most people would last 5 seconds there, if such a place existed. Yes, it's frightening and admittedly an interesting place, but I'm pretty positive I would very much want to get out if I were stuck there.

I think one the biggest attractions of the Otherworld is that it's honest. One look at all that blood, rust, and chain link fence and you know exactly what you're in for.

It may not be pleasant, but at least it doesn't lull you into a feeling of false security before throwing hell at you. As the real world sometimes does.

You don't read around the board much, do you?

Are you serious? I can't even begin to describe to you how ridiculous that statement is, not to mention of no significant importance to the topic at hand. Why don't you try actually providing proof instead hiding behind little jabs like that? The fact is, everything you experience in the Otherworld, in SH1, has some sort of connection to what Alessa has been through and what she feels, fears, thinks, hates, wants, etc. I'm not 1000% certain, but I was under the impression that this was established by the game itself. One doesn't need to "read around the board much" to understand that.
