* ''Webcomic/TheNoordegraafFiles'' has the sub - basement under Theo and Lars' office building. Lars pokes fun at Theo for being scared - until an noise makes him jump. It turns out to be [[spoiler:a girl snooping around, who kicks off the whole plotline.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/HellHouseLLC'': The basement is where the horrible accident that sets the plot in motion happens and throughout the film is easily the creepiest part of the hotel where the worst and most obviously unexplainable things happen. It came complete with strange numbers and occult symbols already written on the walls, lots of Bibles and is the only room in the hotel where the security cameras do not work.

* The cabin's basement in ''Webcomic/CharbyTheVampirate'' is quite nice and well lit, except that it is a complex of caves with a laboratory and deep pit from which at least one monster has come.

* {{Subverted|Trope}} in both ''VideoGame/Left4Dead'' games. Maintenance passages and underground sections aren't any less or more prone to housing Infected, and the absolute majority of the safe rooms are located below ground, most likely due to their inherently tough structure and few access points making them natural strongholds, plus the ease to seal off the air entrances[[/note]]the first idea was that TheVirus was airborne; by the time that was disproven, infrastructure had collapsed too much for new above-ground safe houses to be widely made[[/note]].
