* The [[OurZombiesAreDifferent smilers]] in ''Literature/{{Wander}}'' are locked into a permanent state of happiness, and their MO is to capture a living victim and torture them for as long as possible before they expire. When they have no available playthings they instead torture themselves, especially mutilating their mouths and faces.

* The [[OurZombiesAreDifferent smilers]] in ''Literature/{{Wander}}'' are locked into a permanent state of happiness, and their MO is to capture a living victim and torture them for as long as possible before they expire. When they have no available playthings they instead torture each other or themselves, especially mutilating their mouths and faces. Escaping from them once you're their captive is nigh-on unheard of, and the surest way of pulling it off is [[spoiler: torturing someone else to pretend that you're one of them, and even then it only buys you the freedom to execute an escape, since they have no qualms about torturing each other.]]

* Relatively minor as the show was targeted at toddlers, but the AnimatedAdaptation of NightmareFuel/SpotTheDog has one episode where Spot encounters a cat named ''Cybil''. Cybil's response (a loud growl combined with Off-Model Animation) was potent enough ''Nightmare Fuel'' to the target audiences that parents complained.

* ''The Darkest Part of the Woods'' by Ramsey Campbell invokes old English legends, Asian-style freakish body corruptions, {{Squick}} situations that are oddly tastefully handled, more {{Body Horror}}s...



* Carrie Ryan's ''Literature/TheForestOfHandsAndTeeth. It's a zombie apocalypse novel set after humanity regains its footing. The survivors live in compounds surrounded by fences high enough and strong enough to keep the Unconsecrated out. The worst is the Unconsecrated baby.

* "Flash Frame" by [[http://www.innsmouthfreepress.com/?page_id=17 Silvia Moreno-Garcia]], a story from the ''[[http://cthulhurotica.com/ Cthulhurotica]]'' anthology, is pretty [[FanDisservice damn disturbing.]] It's basically a modern-day retelling of ''Literature/TheKingInYellow'' with a good dose of ''Literature/TheRing'' thrown in. A reporter for a Mexico City tabloid is on the hunt for a sensational story when he hears about some kind of cult meeting at a local porno theater. So he decides to spy on them. Strangely, all they seem to do is view a few minutes of some faux-Roman [[BrownNote exploitation flick]] that seems a bit... [[UncannyValley Off.]] After a few sessions, the reporter starts having nightmares about a [[TheBlank grotesque]] [[HumanoidAbomination seductress.]] And then he realizes his tape recorder has picked up the hidden audio track...
--> [[spoiler: The sound was yellow. A bright, noxious yellow.]]
--> [[spoiler: Festering yellow. The sound of withered teeth scraping against flesh. Of pustules bursting open. Diseased. Hungry.]]
--> [[spoiler: The voice, yellow, speaking to the audience. Telling it things. Asking for things. Yellow limbs and yellow lips, and the yellow maw, the voice that should never have spoken at all.]]
--> [[spoiler: The things it asked for.]]
--> [[spoiler: Insatiable. Yellow.]]
** Of course, the mere ''idea'' of [[RuleThirtyFour erotica based on]] the Franchise/CthulhuMythos is pretty disturbing, but {{Nightmare Fetishist}}s exist.

Added DiffLines:

* "Saucers from Yaddith" by Robert M. Price, in the anthology ''The New Lovecraft Circle'', has a mildly silly title that may lull you into a false sense of security before bringing out the phrase "Jungle Gym of Flesh." BodyHorror city.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Children of Cthulhu'': An anthology of short stories in the Lovecraft manner... The very first one was essentially based on the old adage "The Devil's in the details!"

* The [[OurZombiesAreDifferent feelers]] in ''{{Wander}}'' are locked into a state of heightened emotion. The fighters are always angry, the screamers are always afraid, the weepers are always depressed, and the smilers are always happy. The smilers torture and maim their victims until their bodies give out, just for fun, and mutilate each other or themselves if they get bored.
