* The third ''VideoGame/{{Exmortis}}'' game has you escaping into one of these to take shelter from a nuke that goes off on the surface. It's plenty creepy - with an EldritchAbomination stalking you and playing with your memories, you have to manually restart a train while avoiding booby traps, and there's a [[ImAHumanitarian cannibal]] living in the tunnels.

* An unfortunate young man, after a pub crawl, ducks into a curiously tatty and ill-lit Tube station and boards an oddly dilapidated train in one of the short stories in ''Literature/TheWreckOfTheLodewijk.''

* In the episode "Knock Knock", WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters and the entire BigApplesauce have to contend with subway trains and graffiti turned into monsters. On one occasion the busters board a subway car, the lights go out, and when they go on again they're surrounded by undead skeletal passengers.

* ''World of Subways 4 - New York Line 7'' invokes this during the SecretLevel "Midnight": You have to walk through an evacuated subway sector to find the missing parts for its respective train... while hiding from an [[NothingIsScarier unseen]] SerialKiller at the same time. The "Sinister" part gets even more so whenever a JumpScare cue prompts you to deactivate your flashlight and stay still.

Expect the Sinister Subway to be populated by [[OurMonstersAreDifferent monsters]], alligators, {{Mutants}}, [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampires]], [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot mutant vampire alligators]], and good old {{Serial Killer}}s...or, alternativey, miles and miles of darkly lit, empty [[NothingIsScarier nothing]].

** A better example, however, would be the [[http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Estaci%C3%B3n_de_Arroyo_del_Fresno Arroyo del Fresno]][[note]] Ash Stream in English[[/note]] station. When the line it belongs to was prolongated it was left without being inaugurated as there were very few people living around the station and continues so.
