Horror and Gothic film reviews on Examiner.com

This list is posted primarily for the benefit of students in my Gothic course this term. I am providing links to all of the horror and Gothic film reviews I have written up to this time. A few of these films are arguably Gothic (like A Streetcar Named Desire), but most clearly belong to the horror or Gothic genres. Starred items are those films which most clearly belong to the Gothic tradition. There are also some other posts related to the Gothic on this blog, including a discussion of Laird Cregar and photos demonstrating Gothic images with LEGO minifigures.

Nosferatu (1922)*
Dracula (1931)*
Frankenstein (1931)*
White Zombie (1932)*
Rebecca (1940)*
Cat People (1942)*
Bedlam (1946)*
The Raven (1963)
The Haunting (1963)*

Also relevant is this post about classic movies and Gothic romance.*
