YMMV: The Colour Out of Space
  • Nightmare Fuel: The fate of the Gardner family is possibly one of the scariest things Lovecraft ever wrote.
    • The moving trees at the climax were seriously disturbing. They're a prime example of Lovecraft's "just fundamentally wrong" sense of horror.
    "And yet amid that tense, godless calm the high bare boughs of all the trees in the yard were moving. They were twitching morbidly and spasmodically, clawing in convulsive and epileptic madness."
  • Woobie: It's difficult not to feel terrible for the Gardner family - not just because of their horrible fate, but because of how helpless they are to stop it as it slowly approaches.
