I recently read Edgar Rice Burroughs' Land that Time Forgot series. Particularly enjoyed the third book with the race of winged humans known as the Wieroo. It struck me what a good horror writer Burroughs could have been.
I've become a bit turned off by horror that just revolves around cruelty, you know, the stuff that just thinks up the worst things to do to people. And I'm a bit tired of ghost stories, and with the exception of the classic Dracula, never really got into vampire stuff.
So I was wondering, does anyone have any recommendations for good horror that gets its creepiness from the bizarre or unusual? Things like perfume by Patrick Suskind, the film Jeepers Creepers, or the short stories such as Duel and 1408 would qualify. .
