Queen of Schlock! Actual Gothic Horror

Oh Hi! Yes, I’m back. I was going to continue my blogging break until the new year… but, a blog post, listing top 10 Gothic Horror movies, stirred something up. Ticked me off. Confused me.

I’m not going to post the article or any of the others I looked at afterwards {to see if they had similar entries — sadly, they mostly did}. This will only create an angry mob. You know torches, pitchforks, and all that jazz. This happens when you see a list that contains only a few actual Gothic Horror movies. Instead, I am going to list some of my all time favourite Gothic Horror movies.

{I included full movies when possible.}

As I mentioned, I’m confused by the other lists. I’m not an expert by any means, but… there were some very obvious choices that were omitted. How could they have missed most of Barbara Steele’s movies {one list has zero}, not included a single Hammer film… or any Italian, Spanish or Mexican movies? How? It leaves me wondering if they watched any of the movies or were paid to create a list and used what they googled. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Below is a very small list of my all time favourite Gothic Horror movies. If I listed everything, I would need to create 100 parts to this blog post. Maybe in the near future, I will post some more.

Nightmare Castle (1965)

Castle of Blood (1964)

Premature Burial (1962)

Invasion of the Vampires (1963)

The Pit and The Pendulum (1964)

Terror in the Crypt (1964)

The Mask of Red Death (1964) Trailer

Black Sabbath (1963)

EVERY SINGLE HAMMER MOVIE EVER MADE! Not one single Top 10 list I read, had a Hammer movie as an entry! HOW? There are sooooo many of them!

We also can’t forget the original classics such as Frankenstein, The Bride of Frankenstien, Dracula, The Wolfman, White Zombie, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde and The Bat. These should automatically be on everyone’s list. Yes, I know, I know, they can put what ever THEY want on their own lists, but… if you are making a top 10 list of Gothic Horror… maybe have more than three Gothic Horror movies on your list and do a little bit of fact checking.

What are some of your favourite Gothic Horror movies?
