Lovecraft's works are something you have to kind of dwell on. It's not going to be scary at all if you just pick it up and read it, but if you make sure you're in the right mood, atmosphere, and zone for it, and let it dwell in the back of your mind for a while, it starts to get unsettling.
Also, his stories are incredibly descriptive; it feels like a chore to read if you don't get into it. I think that's one of the reasons there aren't many straight-up Lovecraftian games; you can't just throw Cthulhu into a game and expect it to be scary. It's all very psychological. Amnesia did it very well.
