Added DiffLines:

* BuriedAlive: Implied to be how the lynching victim in the flashback parts of ''The Shunned House'' became a vampire. The townsfolk interred him in the basement of his own house.


Added DiffLines:

* HollywoodAcid: The climax of ''The Shunned House'' has the protagonist dig up the [[spoiler:vampire]] and pour six carboys of sulphuric acid into the pit, killing it. Sulphuric acid is actually pretty slow acting, but it kills the monster insatantly.

Added DiffLines:

* BreatherEpisode: ''Celephas'' is quite pleasant, displaying none of the CosmicHorrorStory elements Lovecraft is famous for. It's about a man who, as a boy, dreams of exploring a fantastic, wonderful city, his 40-year long dream quest to find it again, and how he ends up ruling there forever after as a PhysicalGod. With the CruelTwistEnding that the last part is [[spoiler: his DyingDream after falling off a cliff and drowning]].

* AmbiguousGender: In "The Hound" we know St. John is male because his narrator and partner in crime tells it. There is no telling, or even any hint, on the narrator's gender and role in the story: St. John's wife? Mistress? Male partner, associate or ''lover''?
