Nightmare Fuel: Aphex Twin

  • Come to Daddy — elderly lady is harassed by children, each one of their faces replaced by the identical grinning visage of Richard D. James, whilst a distorted face on a TV howls about how he wants your soul. It gets worse from then on in.
  • Rubber Johnny — think Eraserhead set to a rave track.
    • "Gwarek2" off of Drukqs is highly unsettling, and was used in the above video.
  • The intro to "Milkman" is a garbled recording of a man speaking in what sounds like a foriegn language. It turns out it's English, but run through a Ring Modulator to make it unintelligible. Until one Youtuber decoded it. (Warning: NSFW and Nausea Fuel, with a side of Cluster F-Bomb.)
  • Run "Equation" through a spectogram. Sweet Dreams....
  • The aforementioned hideously ugly woman from Chris Cunningham's music video of Windowlicker. Her face is actually based on a sketch by H. R. Giger, which, you guessed it, is called The Windowlickers.
  • White Blur 1.
  • Many of his ambient tracks are quite akin to something out of Silent Hill. Case in point, "Grass". Interestingly, most of the creepy tracks are the ones related to nature; Grass, Moss, Tree...
  • Come On You Slags, really. It has the creepiest main melody ever heard in an electronic music song.
