* "[[Franchise/CthulhuMythos The Call of Cthulhu]]" by Creator/HPLovecraft has several languages spoken by cultists which sound and look disturbing, thanks to being adaptations of StarfishLanguage to human vocal apparatus. It contains arguably the most famous snatch of this trope outside of Tolkien: ''Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn''.
** In ''Literature/TheShadowOverInnsmouth'', the voices of Innsmouth's mutant inhabitants is described as a "bestial babel of croaking, baying and barking without the least suggestion of human speech" and a "hateful guttural patois."

* ''VideoGame/ArTonelico'''s Corrupted Pastalia certainly [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezH7gslZm5k sounds]] like this, and the context in which it's used doesn't help.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Sundered}}'', the Shining Trapezohedron speaks in a harsh and guttural language that the player can only understand through the magic of subtitles. The written form of it, which shows up in the names of major bosses and certain areas, has a lot of apostrophes, X’s, and Z’s. For instance, the word “Hysteria” is translated as “X’zea’shia”.

* ''VideoGame/MiddleEarthShadowOfMordor'' features The One Ring inscription as sung as OminousLatinChanting. Meanwhile, [[VideoGame/MiddleEarthShadowOfWar the sequel]] features actual Black Speech being spoken by some characters (without translation, to the consternation of some who no longer understand it.)

* Although not inherently evil, Parseltongue in ''Literature/HarryPotter'' definitely sounds creepy, seeing as it's the language of snakes and consists entirely of inhuman hissing. It doesn't help that a number of Dark wizards (including Herpo the Foul, Salazar Slytherin, and Lord Voldemort) could speak the language. As such, in the Franchise/PotterVerse, SealedEvilInACan often requires a Parseltongue password to unlock.

* Doing the voice work for The Necromancer/Sauron in Film/TheHobbit made Creator/BenedictCumberbatch feel a bit dirty. He said in an interview that afterwards he wanted to "speak The Queen's English and have a cup of tea."
