* WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}: episode "Potty Emergency," Wakko, desperate for relief, enters a gas station bathroom. What he sees inside is not shown (other than legions of fleeing cockroaches), but it is obvious that the condition of the lavatory rattles his ''very sanity.''

** The series ended infamously with a SmashToBlack, with Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" cutting off mid-word. And all of its implications, for better and for worse, are absolutely haunting. But you probably already knew that.

* ''Series/TheSopranos'':
** There's an unsettling nightmare experimented by Tony in "Calling All Cars". In that dream, Tony arrives at a house where everything is dark inside, then an old lady with a dark silhouette resembling Livia Soprano (Tony's AbusiveMom, no less) goes down the stairs, stops and creepily stares at Tony. Just as Tony enters the house, he wakes up.

** We're talking about a man here who managed to make a description of an ordinary rental apartment in the middle of a hot summer day, with the narrator in the company of the landlady and two burly mechanics suspenseful and creepy.

* Another famous example that [[TheCallsAreComingFromInsideTheHouse named a trope]]--"The Babysitter." The titular character is taking care of her charges or, in other versions, has put them to bed, when the phone starts ringing. Every time she answers, a man either laughs insanely or gives a message like "I'll be there soon," "Have you checked the children?", or "I'm getting closer." The babysitter calls the police, who tell her to keep the guy on the line for as long as possible so they can trace the call. After he calls back and the girl (because it's [[AlwaysFemale always a girl]] talks to him, the police call back and scream at her to get out of the house--the mysterious calls are coming from an upstairs extension! The girl runs from the house, at which point the killer begins to head down the stairs for her. In some versions, the girl escapes with the children; in others, he's already killed the kids and wants the babysitter to come upstairs so he can murder her, too.
* A lesser-known but still-creepy story has a woman returning home from work to discover her beloved dog choking on something. She immediately rushes the animal to the vet, who tells her to go back to her place while they perform the operation. Upon getting back, she sees the phone ringing off the hook. It's the vet, who tells her to run--[[spoiler: the obstruction was a pair of fingers. A burglar is in the house; the dog bit off his fingers and sent the man hiding somewhere, probably hiding in a closet at that moment]].

* The famous {{Creepypasta}} [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Masterpiece "Masterpiece"]] uses this to great effect. A teenager hears noises in the middle of the night, goes to the bathroom before investigating, and sees blood all over the carpet near their parent's room. The teen runs back to their bed and hides under the sheets, pretending to be asleep, then sees a strange monster (the lack of description/awareness of what the damn thing ''is'' makes it another example of this trope) drag the corpses of their parents into the room. The creature uses blood to draw a pentagram on the wall, writes a message in the middle, then hides under the bed, waiting. The teen lies awake for hours, knowing that death is imminent. As their eyes finally adjust to the light, they make out the words on the wall--"I KNOW YOU'RE AWAKE." Brrrr.
