* EldritchAbomination: The titular Colour is a particularly creepy example because its nature is never discerned--only its effects, ''vis-à-vis'' Ammi's tale and the nature of the heath itself. It simply crashed on the property one day and anythign else is pure speculation.

A story by Creator/HPLovecraft inspired by Creator/ArthurMachen's "The Novel of the White Powder" (from the novel ''The Three Imposters''). The story is first told from the perspective of a property investigator visiting the town of [[LovecraftCountry Arkham]] who is surveying prospective sites for a new reservoir. Eventually he starts asking about the mysterious "blasted heath" which the people had been trying to avoid talking about for the entire time. Eventually he finds Ammi, an old man living near the heath, who is willing to explain what happened there and why absolutely nothing can live on that burgeoning plot of land...

* Film/DieMonsterDie starring Creator/BorisKarloff, it takes some of the ideas of the novel and then follows a completely different plot.
* Film/TheCurse starring Creator/WilWheaton and directed by Creator/DavidKeith, actually has a plot not so unfaithful to the novel.

The story is one of several of Lovecraft's that received an audio drama adaptation from the Atlanta Radio Theater Company.
