Ex Oblivione is a short I found while browsing /r/horror. In the words of its creator it “…follows the story of a man suffering from OCD and his attempt to overcome his illness with the help of his elderly landlady, while something dark and sinister stirs within his mind. Based on a short story by HP Lovecraft.”

I have to say I liked it very much. It’s a creepy tale told from the perspective of a deranged mind (always liked those) and the slow build up to the finale is very well executed. I haven’t read the short story yet but at times this reminded me of Johnny the Homicidal Maniac who had to paint a wall in blood to keep the demons at bay.
