Occult detectives

Film or TV containing an occult detective[1], usually involving someone in law enforcement or an academic or a journalist who either investigates a mundane event that leads them into dark and strange depths or they are already interested in the topic and specifically seek it out.

Intriguingly, while this cross-genre is a popular source for film and especially TV, most of the original characters that inspired them haven't themselves been adapted, like Carnacki[2] (Martin Hesselius or John Silence or Flaxman Low or Jules de Grandin or John Thunstone or Simon Iff or pretty much everyone except Van Helsing). It seems that with the success of Sherlock and Steampunk or Victorian/Edwardian fiction being popular now might be the time - someone should phone Mark Gatiss.

See also: I have an archaeological adventurer list, which has some crossover with this list, as well as being another well-known archetype. I also started the keyword occult detective on here and added most of the titles to it.

Two FBI agents, Fox Mulder the believer and Dana Scully the skeptic, investigate the strange and unexplained while hidden forces work to impede their efforts. (45 mins.)
“ Occult detectives are very popular these days (as popular as they were back in Victorian/Edwardian times, when Spiritualism was at its height being opposed by the emerging modern scientific method) and it is always going to be difficult pinning down quite what one work helped take things to the next level. However, if you were forced to pick something, then it has to be The X-Files, whose influence can clearly be seen in Alias, Warehouse 13, Fringe, etc. where you have slicker, often government-backed investigators into what is usually the more scientifically strange.

Where you have the scuzzier, private eye delving into occult matters (Dresden Files, Lord of Illusions, Curandero, Grimm and all the other such investigators in urban fantasy/horror books and comics that haven't made it to the screen) then you have to point the finger at Hellblazer, which was disappointingly adapted as Constantine. ” - Mighty_Emperor

A private detective stumbles into limbo - and is shocked to find it inhabited by dead criminals trying to make it back to the land of the living... (89 mins.)
Director: Mark Haber
“ Decent enough for a TV movie with some nice design touches, that felt like it could have been the launchpad for a series. Unfortunately, the rather flat enemy didn't do it any favours, despite a great turn by Clayton Rohner - I'd certainly have watched more of him. I suspect they needed a slightly higher budget so they could fancy the effects up a bit. However, RIPD pretty much stole the whole story from Border Patrol and threw in much better effects (thanks to a budget that must have been a few orders of magnitude higher than BP's), but wasn't much more entertaining. ” - Mighty_Emperor

“ On the surface a spy-fi series but one with a more... occult storyline running through it (revolving around Rambaldi[1]). Could be seen as dabbling in themes that would be explicit in JJ Abrams' later TV series Fringe.

Sherlock Holmes investigates a series of death rumoured to be caused by a vampire. (90 mins.)
Director: Rodney Gibbons
“ Not an actual adaptation and it doesn't actually include a vampire, although initially that is what they assume it is before it turning out to be a weirdy bunch of berobed occultists. Oh and Sherlock Holmes is played by Max Headroom, which is... unusual, but this is only one of four Holmes stories with Matt Frewer at the helm, the other three are actual adaptations, making this even odder. ” - Mighty_Emperor

“ Based on the Hellblazer comics, and it was all a little disappointing. If they'd cast better and stuck closer to the source material it would have been much better, but judged without the source material in mind, it wasn't too bad - well not as bad as I was expecting it to be anyway!! ” - Mighty_Emperor

“ Pilot for a TV series based on Warren Ellis' comic book series of the same name[1], which feature a group dealing with global threats from the paranormal to the technological. The series was never picked up but other people were working on another adaptation. I do wonder if Fringe has rather poured cold water on this, but then perhaps its success made it more likely. Unfortunately, as nothing has been heard of this in a few years it might be dead again.

Two brothers follow their father's footsteps as "hunters" fighting evil supernatural beings of many kinds including monsters, demons, and gods that roam the earth. (44 mins.)

“ I thought this worth flagging up as one of the best Scooby Doo spoofs, where the influences not only draw from the show but also real-life killers and lunatics.[1]

Oddly I was wondering if anyone had tried this only days before it popped up on TV, as if The Universe itself was answering my question. Thank you Universe.
