The moment when you decide to either continue playing or destroy your PC's screen.

The Face (or Facehead) is one of the many apparitions that Simon has during Cry of Fear and the first one to be encountered. Appears twice in the game:
  • In the prologue, after almost reaching the X in the distance. It'll burst out from the dark while making a loud scream, awaking Simon from the nightmare (and probably scaring the player to death).
  • In a room lined with cages of Faceless, and the Face trapped by its neck through a hole in the floor. It does not acknowledge Simon's presence in any way, and only continues to turn, stare and bite wildly, though it will hurt Simon if he touches it.

​The Face has the honor of being the first scare in the whole game, as well as the most brutal one.

Relevance to Simon

The Face's significance to Simon is unknown. It is at first very intimidating, but is later revealed to be insane, incapable of movement and completely helpless. It may very well represent Simon's self-loathing and distress at his current situation.
