A great resource for improving your game. Any genre of game.

How? By deconstructing the tropes of slasher and j-horror movie monsters, we get to see what makes the monsters work as characters. As such, they become more Real when played. Mystery Man makes for a very memorable yet enigmatic emissary of an alien culture or Man In Black, for example. The frame fiction also is inspirational for ideas on how to build a story hook for your characters (not necessarily directly as shown) - the idea of cameraphone video of "real" deaths being used as a staged music video worked wonderfully for getting my characters involved with a story that really put the characters out of their comfort zone... and thus made for an excellent horror game.
