• Il racconto La casa stregata venne ispirato a Lovecraft da una casa realmente esistente a Providence, da lui definita «maledetta o nutrita di cadaveri». Il tema di antichi orrori che si risvegliano, di misteriose auree demoniache, la suspense e il senso di oppressione soprannaturale trasmessi da queste pagine si incontrano anche nel celebre L'orrore a Red Hook, molto citato dagli appassionati di Lovecraft che sostengono l'ipotesi che lo scrittore fosse un affiliato di una setta occulta, vista la precisione con cui riporta alcune formule usate durante rituali esoterici. Con L'orrore di Dunwich entriamo in un altro mondo, in quell'universo alieno inaugurato dalla figura di Cthulhu che lo scrittore svilupperà in una serie di famose raccolte. Ne I sogni nella casa stregata Lovecraft introduce un'intuizione che influenzerà molti scrittori di fantasy suoi contemporanei: l'orrore non proviene solo dallo spazio infinito, ma anche dall'infinità di universi paralleli al nostro. Creatore e caposcuola incontestato del filone dell'orrore soprannaturale, Lovecraft fa risalire le radici della sua narrativa alle angosce e agli incubi più oscuri dell'animo umano.
