Well, for starters we can say in the "Murder in the Rue Morgue" there is the horror of the brutal murders
In "MS in a Bottle" there are "zombie" sailors of the ghost ship and the they unknown horror the narrator faces in the end
"Tell-Tale Heart" about murderer who has something akin to the "Lady Macbeth Syndrome".
