I gained a healthy fear of Beholders from the Labyrinth of Madness. Although everything in that adventure made me paranoid as hell.

Honestly though, I think that the most of the horror and creepiness in a game comes from a good GM and more importantly, willing players. If players don't allow themselves to be caught up in the mood then it doesn't really matter what the monsters are.


Vilisemen from Green Ronin's Book of Fiends for the win.

One of the players in my group summed that creature up in one word: GUH!

The Face Stealer from the Creature Collection (II I think).

That is just a scary monster in its MO.

Ooh, good pick. I vaguely recall some skinstealer types that kill someone and slither into their skin as well, although I'm not sure if that's the same beastie or something else.

Sounds a little bit like Mockery Drones, from I believe 3.5 Monster Manual 4.

They are large centipede like creatures with human faces, that take over a host, replacing their face and positioning their body along the spine's length.
Someone taken over by a mockery drone will wear a constant eerie smile and only absently go through the same routine activity, until discovered for the impostor they are, at which point they burst out of the host's face and attack.

That's pretty much the creepiest thing i've ever read in any RPG book.
