The closest trope that fits what you're looking for is Paranormal Episode, if it's only for a single episode, or a single chapter.

Otherwise, plain 'ol Genre Shift should do.

Something Completely Different for the supertrope, see also Out-of-Genre Experience

Early Installment Weirdness and Growing the Beard are when this is part of a serial work finding it's groove, which often involves the evolution of a Myth Arc through gradual Continuity Creep

Cerebus Syndrome is when the work not only expands in scope but also grows more serious.
