Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/RogueLegacy'' has creepy portraits haunting the Castle and Tower areas. They look like normal paintings at first glance, but twitch when the player gets close. After they take damage, they transform into pitch-black portraits with scary-looking faces and fangs, and will circle around the player and shoot them with energy balls.

* In the Creator/RogerCorman film ''[[LovecraftOnFilm The Haunted Palace]]'', Curwen's portrait is the main way he insinuates his spirit into the consciousness of his unwitting descendant. (In the original story, ''Literature/TheCaseOfCharlesDexterWard'', the portrait had no supernatural qualities; it served only to show the [[IdenticalGrandson similarity of appearance]] between Curwen and Ward.)

* Creator/HPLovecraft used this one a few times:
** In "Literature/TheCaseOfCharlesDexterWard," the plot is kicked in by the discovery of the protagonist's ancestor's portrait that's almost identical in appearance to him. It often appears to be watching on young Charles as he works, but although it loses its menace for awhile, it later gets worse, surrounded by a miasma of undefinable dread. [[spoiler:As it turns out, the latter is due to the fact that the said ancestor is resurrected, and he kills Charles and stuffs his body behind the painting, presumably after first destroying it with acid, resulting in unpleasant smell that people interpret subconsciously as evil presence.]]

** ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight'' also features them. A notable example is found in the Royal Chapel, specifically the room where you fight the Hippogryph, that depicts a group of scythe-wielding winged skeletons massacring crusaders in front of a temple.
