I love gothic romance movies and gothic TV shows – and I especially love when they also happen to be period dramas or have touches of the supernatural!
The film is based on a Sarah Waters novel, and while it isn’t a true gothic tale, it does have gothic romance elements incorporating themes of madness and obsession while also featuring a strong female protagonist and a forbidden attraction.
The gothic miniseries from Sarah Polley is fantastic! This gothic thriller is based on a true story with some appealing romance and intriguing turns.
While gothic romance isn’t a focus of the series (but hey, who isn’t rooting for Sara and John?), it does have gothic elements and features fabulous period costumes that add to its authenticity.

The gothic drama/romance is a fun and action-packed supernatural romp from the creator of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. While it takes place mainly in the modern-day, numerous flashbacks take place in historical times.
