Added DiffLines:

* In ''Tabletop/{{Warhammer}}'', the Bretonnian province of Mousillon is a giant poison swamp where the main industry is frog and snail catching, the populace are largely still recovering from a plague outbreak and far from the friendliest people in the Old World, every third house is empty and even the ones that aren't are rotten and dilapidated, grave-robbing is pretty much the local past-time (though sometimes the dead just help themselves out of their graves), the last Duke was murderously insane and very possibly not even human, his petty lord descendants all wear black armour and never remove their visors for some reason, and no-one in the rest of Bretonnia has any clue what the hell is wrong with the place.

* The Israeli drama series ''Pillars of Smoke'', while not quite subscribing to the supernatural nature of other horror works, centres around a cult that formed a kibbutz in the remote Golan Heights that up and vanished mysteriously one day. The series was [[http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/nbc-adapting-israeli-drama-pillars-228942 bought]] [[ForeignRemake by]] Creator/{{NBC}}, and the remake was intended to take place in Alaska, but so far nothing has come of it.

* Creator/NeilGaiman wrote a short story titled "Shoggoth's Old Peculiar" set in the apparently original Innsmouth on the British coast, as seen through the eyes of a GenreBlind American tourist. (The title is the name of the pub's signature beer.) The local residents are quite GenreSavvy, and they don't think much of Howard P.

Shifting the setting of a CosmicHorrorStory to, for instance, England presents problems. As the old saying goes, "An Englishman thinks a hundred miles is a long way while an American thinks a hundred years is a long time." [[note]]In China, though, nobody's impressed by either one.[[/note]] In other words, England is a much smaller country with a much longer history. It's much easier to believe that an English village was the site of some dreadful secret dating back to medieval, Roman or Pagan times. Lovecraft, in contrast, had a more limited historical horizon in his New England tales, with the early 17th century standing as his temporal ne plus ultra (unless he wanted to invoke Native horrors, which he didn't). However, it's much harder to believe that cosmic events could happen in little ol' England and ''nobody'' would notice -- whereas in a big place like the United States (even in a single region like New England), isolation comes relatively cheap. (Essentially, in LovecraftCountry, the old secrets are ''very secret'', whereas in CampbellCountry the old secrets are ''very old''.)

* Quite a few episodes ''VideoGame/TheLastDoor'' has you exploring large, rundown estates around the English and Scottish countryside. There is even an episode set in Victorian London, taking full advantage of stuff like the city's labyrinthine slum and foggy streets to build an effectively creepy atmosphere.

* Hinamizawa, the setting of ''VisualNovel/HigurashiNoNakuKoroNi'', could be seen as a Japanese CampbellCountry. Especially with its taboo on people leaving and (until recently) people entering.
