* * DocumentaryOfLies: The InUniverse reviewers who theorize endlessly about ''The Navidson Record'', or are consulted about its content, take it entirely for granted that it's this trope. Except for Creator/StephenKing, who wants to visit the house. The main thing that makes those reviewers believe it's fake is the labyrinth, because no way that could be real... Right?

Except for Creator/StephenKing, who wants to visit the house. ** Of note is the fact that ''The Navidson Record'' might have been an ''actual documentary'', due to it's lack of makeup, non-existent script, unknown actors, etc. In fact, the only thing that makes people believe it's fake is the labyrinth. And even then, there's no way that could be real.. Right?

This is an In-universe example.

House of Leaves is definitely an example, but not the dedication: it's part of Johnny's introduction, though I don't remember exactly how and can't check
* SnicketWarningLabel: The book's dedication, which says "This is not for you."

* ArcNumber: Johnny implies briefly that nine is this to him near the end, though he doesn't seem to mention it elsewhere. He might be on to something, though - he calculates the digital root for the date to find 9, and if you do the same to his birthday, you ''also'' find 9.

*** The color blue is meant to be used to something akin to Chroma Key. The Chroma Key reference means that the house is meant to be an entity that is projected on to. ZampanÚ, Johnny, and the readers all project as much into the house as Navidson or Holloway.

* UnfunnyAneurysmMoment: Very early in the story (page 10 or 11), Navy throws away a bit of Karen's hair that's stuck in a brush, and Karen jokingly states that she'll go bald one day and need that hair. [[spoiler: In the story's epilogue, she's in remission from breast cancer.]]
