Spoilers in Video Games and Webcomics, and no warning for spoilers.

Why was The Cabin in the Woods removed as an example?

My guess is for spoiler reasons. Alternatively, maybe because so little is known of the Ancient Ones that it might not qualify? But I'm betting spoiler reasons.

Because the example was completely under spoiler marks, except for the title (and only because I made it visible):

  • In The Cabin in the Woods, The entire horror movie was orchestrated to appease the "Ancient Ones," eldritch abominations who require specific ritualistic human sacrifices or else they will destroy the world. The movie ends with a giant hand bursting out of the cabin and the world ending.

Someone completely messed up the intro! The old one was entirely better. The first three paragraphs need to be massively reverted.

This should be eldritch abomination story now, right?

No. The name of the genre is "cosmic horror" - the "story" is simply there for context(Cosmic Horror pointing to Eldritch Abomination is simply an artifact of very widespread misuse).

Someone changed the Laconic entry. Is it okay to revert it?

The genre is sometimes called "Cosmic Horror", Lovecraftian Fiction, or Weird Fiction.

I thought weird fiction combined elements from lovecraftian fiction and magic realism

It can. The lines between them are very fuzzy.

Is this the same weird fiction that some authors are trying to revive?

Well, personally, I think the definition of The New Weird given there has lots of nice words, but doesn't really define the genre very well. So I can't really say how much influence Weird Fiction has on New Weird.

So cosmic horror stories are a part of weird fiction? I'm interested how weird fiction compares and contrasts to gothic horror and when weird fiction started replacing gothic horror.

Wondering whether it would be objectionable to revert the Laconic entry to its previous state. Feedback?

I changed it back. Thanks for spotting that.
