"The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown." – H. P. Lovecraft

Cool Air – An icy apartment hides secrets no man dares unlock.

The Case of Charles Dexter Ward – Ward delves into the black arts and resurrects the darkest evil from beyond the grave.

The Terrible Old Man – The intruders seek a fortune but find only death.

Herbert West - Reanimator – Mad experiments yield hideous results in this bloodcurdling tale, the inspiration for the cult film Re-Animator.

The Shadow Over Innsmouth – A small fishing town's population is obscenely corrupted by a race of fiendish undersea creatures.

The Lurking Fear – An upstate New York clan degenerates into thunder-crazed molelike creatures with a taste for human flesh.
