The message next to a locked door.

The Darkness Message can be found written on a wall next to a locked door at the end of Katz Street in South Vale, which appears in Silent Hill 2.

The door next to the message will be locked if James Sunderland attempts to open it before the Otherworld takes over South Vale, which alludes to the message stating, "the door that wakes in darkness".
