** ''{{Kirby}}'': On a similar note. Yes, SweetDreamsFuel can enhance a CosmicHorrorStory in the right context.

* ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'': The world's pretty [[CrapsackWorld Crapsack]] ''without'' the horrors, and once these become central figures, the manga arguably goes ''[[UpToEleven beyond Lovecraft's]]'' WorldHalfEmpty image.

corrupt religeous imagery. Swastikas and pentagrams, both originally occult symbols before ThoseWackyNazis and Music/HeavyMetal co-opted them, feature prominently in Lovecraft's works.

* JohnCarpenter's "Apocalypse Trilogy", consisting of ''Film/TheThing1982'', ''Film/PrinceOfDarkness'', and ''Film/InTheMouthOfMadness''. All excellent homages to Lovecraftian fiction and arguably the quintessential cinematic representation of the genre.

That quote tells you all you need to know about the mindset of the author you've chosen to emulate. Something of a misanthropist, H.P. Lovecraft's tale revolved around the idea that life really was ultimately meaningless; human experience and belief was worthless, human religions feeble artifices, and if there were any Gods out there, then they were either so far beyond us that they literally showed no interest in whether we live or die, or are actively malevolent and wish to consume us and torment us for all eternity. [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism Optimists in this universe are not welcome and not likely to do so well]]. Lovecraft's stories jump-started a modern horror movement focusing on {{Eldritch Abomination}}s waking from their eternal slumber to torment humanity, who is entirely defenseless and pathetic against their onslaught.
