Nightmare Fuel: Call of Cthulhu
The Tabletop Game
All the typical Lovecraft stuff; cosmic horror, zombies, unfathomably ancient aliens etc...But then consider all the other mythos writers' creations that show up...And then add in some of the scenario writers' creations.
The monster that causes the problems in the scenario Crack'd and Crook'd Manse. A particularly graphic description plus the investigators realising just how big it is can call for a pretty rapid exit strategy from the characters. And the players.
The scenario The Colour of his Eyes from the San Francisco sourcebook. A man has a Colour Out Of Space (basically a form of sentient, malevolent light) trapped in his eyes, and he drains the energy from (and kills) anything he looks at.
