I found Natasha Pulley's article 'How to Write Weird' particularly useful having finished a 1st draft which has just this type of scene in later chapters. It's based on the WWI 'Angel of Mons' legend but set a century earlier when superstition was more widely believed as fact.
Getting this right for a modern audience was hard going and I'm not sure I'm quite there yet.
Any else been stuck with a similar problem, and how did you overcome it?
