Elena N Maybe House of Leaves or The Secret History
Justin Steele Flicker by Theodore Roszak.
Steven Tanner I thought this was a decent little yarn... perhaps a little too wordy at times (not everything needs painstaking detail). But if you liked this, you should absolutely check out Theodore Roszak's "Flicker." Very similar; mysterious story surrounding an avant-garde filmmaker and black magic.

This one (Flicker) haunted me for a while after reading it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flicker...
BCQ Broken Monsters by Lauren Beukes
Keith Last Days by Adam Nevill
Karen The Magus. If you liked Night Film you will LOVE the Magus by John Fowles. It is an illusion within a story and ends differently on a re-read.
Aida Celic The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Safon
yiannis Definitely house of leaves
Elizabeth Scott I second The Secret History
Geeknomad I second the Secret History and House of Leaves. I'd also add S to the list, by JJ Abrams, and The Egyptologist by Arthur Miller. I label them as my unreliablenarrator/descentintomadness books and LOVE them (well, the Egyptologist after the first ~100 pages. It starts slowly).
Kelly The author's first book, Special Topics in Calamity Physics - but only if you can stomach a 16-year-old narrator and other high school themes. If you do go for this book, read it through the end - it gets better as it progresses. Also, The Book of Illusions by Paul Auster.
Darryll Doucette The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova. It's good.
The List of Seven by Mark Frost
Jen Experimental Film
Mara The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson
Natalie 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami
Kristin Thanks, everyone!
Jill Baker The Snowman by Jo Nesbo
Kansas Ancient Images, by Ramsey Campbell.
Rebus X Don't read bad books. Twice.
Rebecca Shehee Ill Will by Dan Charon. Definitely.
Katie Sutton The Goldfinch or possibly Social Creature
Jennifer Smith The Angel's Game
Luke Taylor Syndrome E by Franck Thilliez
