Since I had such a positive experience with Pride & Prejudice & Zombies
, I've been poking around for some other good period type films that I haven't seen yet. And have run across a few that look somewhat interesting.
All of these come from a site called Willow and Thatch, which specializes in period movies and TV. I have no idea who runs the site, or why. It was the first link to come up though when I Googled for "gothic period films", and seemed to have a few interesting suggestions. I was actually looking for mostly older films, but these are all fairly recent.
