Added DiffLines:

* "Virtual Death" from ''Cross Purposes''. The opening bass sounds similar to "Hand of Doom", while Tony Martin's hauntingly creepy vocals will wonder if you're experiencing a living nightmare.


* "Headless Cross", from the eponymous album, is based on an actual event that happened in a small village in England during the time of pestilence. A group of people went up to a headless cross on a hill to pray to get better, and predictably nobody survives. Martin's vocal delivery and the depressing timbre of the song certainly creates a tragic atmosphere, and the first 60 seconds are quite chilling, sounding like the kind of ambiance that might play in a long elevator ride to Hell.

* Much of the final short, "The Drop of Water", but the ghoulish UncannyValley face of the dead medium stands out.

''Black Sabbath'': The 1963 Italian horror film (yes, the one [[Music/BlackSabbath a certain band]] was named after) has three segments than can and will haunt one's dreams.

* Much of Dehumanizer, actually. The majority of the Ronnie James Dio albums favors epicness over nightmares, but this album, from its cover art to its doomier sound makes this easily the scariest of the Dio Sabbath albums.

Added DiffLines:

* Say what you will about ''Forbidden'', but the opening 50 seconds of "The Illusion of Power" would be a great tone-setter for any Sabbath album.


** "When Death Calls", from its soft, eerie buil-up and haunting themes about fearing death and going to Hell afterwords, up to its louder parts about warning not to stare in "those sunken eyes" and Satan stealing your soul forever. It's goose bump-inducing stuff.

** From the same album, "The Gates of Hell" ''really'' earns its title.

Added DiffLines:

** Speaking of "The Dark", it fades into the intro of the next song, "Zero the Hero" where the opening riff sounds like a monster coming alive in the most nightmarish way possible.
* Also from ''Born Again'', your listening to the atmospheric "Stonehenge", when all of a sudden... [[JumpScare "AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!" You're jolted into the next song, "Disturbing the Priest", a haunting track in its own right]].
* "Born Again" from the eponymous album. A slow, haunting, doom metal sound with distorted guitars due to the muddled production give it an atmosphere as though an ApocalypticLog is recording the coming of the Antichrist.
** "Eternal Idol" from ''The Eternal Idol'' gives off a similar vibe.
