Topic: gothic movies like 1992 Dracula

I just saw the 1992 Dracula and I liked it.  I'd really like to see other movies like this.  There don't seem to be many movies in this gothic style.  Do you know of any worth watching?  They don't necessarily have to be horror.  I like Interview with the Vampire, Shadow of the Vampire, and the 2010 Wolfman.  I don't like campy movies.

Also, I love Lovecraft, so feel free to suggest Lovecraftian movies if you want.

Re: gothic movies like 1992 Dracula

I made a contemporary gothic film list a while ago.  The movies listed are all period films in the gothic style.

You might also enjoy some older gothic movies from the 50s/60s like

Black Sunday
Horror of Dracula
Curse of Frankenstein
Eyes without a face


And here is a list of lovecraft movies also...

Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow would qualify. Dark , moody and gothic.

Did we mention Carnival of Souls yet? Or Jess Franco's early movies like The Awful Dr. Orloff.

Re: gothic movies like 1992 Dracula

Re: gothic movies like 1992 Dracula
