A good place to "farm" enemies for this achievement is in the prison stage, specifically the hangman's puzzle (which cannot be missed). This is the puzzle right before the gate that is locked with the handcuffs. Enter the room with the 6 hanging bodies and determine which one is the innocent man (this is the Kidnapper on Easy riddle mode, the Arsonist on Normal, the Counterfeiter on Hard, and the Thief on Extra). Remember his location and run down the hallway to the room with the 6 empty nooses. Pull any of the nooses that DO NOT correspond to the innocent man's position. Run back down the hallway to the room with the bodies. Nothing will have changed because you purposely answered wrong. Turn around and re-enter the hallway. There will be at least 2 spitter enemies in the hallway for you to kill (the number may change based on difficulty). Once they're dead, run back to the empty noose room. Again, pull the wrong noose, run back to the bodies room, return to the hallway and there will be some more spitters to kill. You can do this over and over again pretty quickly (for anyone worried about their time rankings). Also, just a note, you can skip the noose-pulling animation by hitting the start button. Happy hunting!

I completed this very easily on my second play through in the game by using the shot gun and the chainsaw. I played on normal my second play through and had enough enemies to kill by either shooting them with the shot gun then kicking them or chainsawing them and then kicking them (chainsawing was my favorite although not as effective against nurses and spitters). I had this achievement while on my way collecting a few items down Rendell Street after having finished the hospital while it is night in Silent Hill. I just killed all the enemies I could find from the start of the game til them, and still have plenty of time to kill 75 enemies by shooting them.

Someone had brought to my attention that I may not have been clear on how I got my 75 melee kills so here is a bit more about it I hope that it helps everyone.

It does have to be done in one playthrough, I did that one on my second playthrough which was on normal. I used the chainsaw as I said in the walkthrough, if I knocked them down with the shot gun I would then kick them. But the chainsaw counts as a melee weapon. The only time I didn't chainsaw was on nurses and spitters. I did this also by meleeing everything I came across. I still have to finish this one and get my 75 kills by shooting them but I am about halfway through the game on my second playthrough right now so I still have plenty to kill.
