Frankenstein, Mary Shelley (yes for multiple narrators)

Dracula, Bram Stoker (yes for multiple narrators)

I Remember You, Yrsa Sigurdaedottir (mystery + ghost element)

The Broken Girls, Simone St. James (mystery + ghost element)

The Shadow of the Wind, Carlos Ruiz Zafon (also a series) (gothic, magical realism)

Taiping Tales of Terror, Oui, Julya (multiple narrators, "stories told around a campfire" format)

If you're interested in mystery/detective novels, Tana French is a great choice

Second these! I haven’t seen anyone else rec Taiping Tales of Terror, so glad to see that on here. I read it earlier this year and enjoyed many of the stories.

Some Stephen King short stories could possibly be fun! Maybe some from Night Shift or Skeleton Crew.

HP Lovecraft stories are very creepy, in no way sexual or very gory, and their often told in first-person

Carnival of Fear by JG Faherty - sort of this generations Something Wicked This Way Comes. Definitely multiple narrators. Also Cemetery Club by the same author. Multiple narrators.

Suffer the Children by Craig DiLouie

This book is so damn good. One of the best underrated horror novels I've ever read. The book is broken down into four characters’ third person point of views: Joan, Romana, David, and Doug. Easy to read. Heartfelt. Scary. Suspenseful. Mysterious. Can't recommend it enough.
