Ligottian

“The attic is not haunting your head – your head is haunting the attic. Some heads are more haunted than others, whether they are haunted by ghosts or by gods or by creatures from outer space.”

Works that bring to mind the fiction and philosophy of author Thomas Ligotti. Some moreso than others, all to a fairly significant extent.
