Vintage horror novels with titles ending in "ing"

A curious, but mostly forgotten trend in publishing was the use of "ing" titles to signify horror. This can be traced back to the publication of Stephen King's novel The Shining, but it remained common practice throughout much of the horror boom. In most cases, these have fallen into (sometimes justified, sometimes not) obscurity, but it's an interesting portrait of an odd moment in publishing history.

PLEASE DO NOT ADD ANYTHING PUBLISHED AFTER 1995.

The rockabilly werewolf from Mars I've never read most of these, I'm just going by the titles I have seen at used book stores.
