* ''Series/AmericanHorrorStoryCoven'', which takes place in NewOrleans, Louisiana. And ''Series/AmericanHorrorStoryFreakShow'' takes place in Jupiter, Florida in 1952 (back when Jupiter was still part of the South, rather than the Northern-and-Cuban sprawl emanating from Miami).

* ''Series/TrueDetective'': The first season features two detectives investigating an occult-themed serial killing in the suburban and rural areas surrounding NewOrleans. [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane Although nothing is definitely supernatural]], it's very much portrayed as a southern version of LovecraftCountry, with Creator/ThomasLigotti being a major influence.

to:

* ''Series/{{Outcast}}'', about Kyle Barnes, who lives in a small West Virginia town plagued by demonic possessions fits this trope. It helps that the comic it's based on was created by Robert Kirkman, who also created ''The Walking Dead''.

* HPLovecraft's ''[[Literature/TheCallOfCthulhu The Call Of Cthulhu]]'' abandons the traditional [[LovecraftCountry New England]] as a setting for monstrous buried secrets, wandering Southwards to the dank swamps of Louisiana, where Cthulhu's cultists gather for celebration with orgies and human sacrifices.

* ''Literature/ARoseForEmily'', by Main/WilliamFaulkner, could well be the poster child of this trope. Emily Grierson's mansion, a symbol of better days long since past, is described in the most wretched terms of rot and decay--and the house hides terrible secrets.

* Creator/StephenKing, T-Bone Burnett and JohnMellencamp created a musical called ''Ghost Brothers of Darkland County'' which plays with a lot of the tropes associated with the genre. It also contains several shout-outs to FlanneryOConnor, TennesseeWilliams and WilliamFaulkner, but with a supernatural elements thrown.
