Where are the metasatirical horror novels?

I've been tasked to find metasatirical horror novels: horror novels (or short stories, I suppose) that explore, criticize and parody their own genre tropes. What are the prose equivalents of The Cabin in the Woods and Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon?

Finding a Novel that is Strange but Also Everyday

I'm looking for a novel that strikes a tone between the strange and the intimate/everyday.
