A very short early story of Tanizaki from 1913 that you might think is a horror story from the title but it is not. It is a quasi-comical take of extreme anxiety in a young man and not much more than that.

「旦那、俥はいかゞでございます。」 「ナニいゝんだ。己は人を待ち合せて、大阪へ行くんだから。」 こんな事を云って、車夫を追拂いながら矢張りいつまでも腰を掛けて居た。「大阪へ行くんだから。」と答えたのが、自分には何だか、「もう直死ぬんだから。」と云うように響いた。“If any one should ask you, say I've gone to America!”こう叫んで、言下に右の蟀谷へピストルをあてゝ自殺をした『罪と罰』の中の Svidrigailoff のように、「私は大阪へ行くんだから。」と云って、忽ち眼を舞わして此の場へ悶絶したら、あの車夫はどんなに吃驚するだろう。
