      Maybe not as creepy as some of the above, but I just saw the new rendition of "It" last night, and there was some great use of repetition. "You'll float too," and "I thrust my fists against the post, and still insist I see the ghost." Sorry, a few of the words may be off... but worked well dramatically in any case.

      It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.

      Houses... are alive. This is something we know. If we're quiet, if we listen, we can hear houses breathe. A good house cradles and comforts; a bad one fills us with instinctive unease. Bad houses hate our warmth and our humanness. That blind hate of our humanity is what we mean when we use the word "haunted". -Rose Red (2002 TV Mini Series)

      "The 3 types of terror: The Gross-out: the sight of a severed head tumbling down a flight of stairs, it's when the lights go out and something green and slimy splatters against your arm. The Horror: the unnatural, spiders the size of bears, the dead waking up and walking around, it's when the lights go out and something with claws grabs you by the arm. And the last and worse one: Terror, when you come home and notice everything you own had been taken away and replaced by an exact substitute. It's when the lights go out and you feel something behind you, you hear it, you feel its breath against your ear, but when you turn around, there's nothing there..."

      -Stephen King, The Master of Horror
