Lists by matt-baen
Dying, addicted, mentally ill young adults.
Children & teen fantasy adaptations that tried to replicate the success of Harry Potter.
Not including black comedy. Includes kid-friendly superheroes.
These are released several years apart, unlike the 'twin movie' phenomenon of very similar films released within a year or two of each other.
Gothic without the paranormal, even ambiguously.
Films featuring Stone Age people and prehistoric environments.
Movies & TV featuring human characters with unusual life cycles. (Who are not vampires, superheroes, nor gods.)
Even though I'm an atheist, I still enjoy the occasional religious movie.
Star Wars, videogames, LARP, Star Trek etc.
Vampire books (and their later adaptations), plays, movies, and TV of 2008. Includes announced projects released in 2009.
Time reset loops of a few days or less, not years. Just viewing the titles on this list may be spoilery.
Movies that came after The Matrix that seem to be influenced by it.
An intriguing emerging genre inspired by mumblecore and budgetary constraints.
Renaissance to pre-World War I.
Some films featuring vampires reminiscent of those of pre-Dracula literature or of folklore.
Note: I hate some of these.
Disney at its best > Miyazaki, Pixar...
Live action only. Doesn't just take place in area that happens to be cold; the cold, snow & ice is a kind of character.
Not including Snow White nor Harry Potter
Gothic nightclub vamps, urban fantasy, clans, hunters, detectives, black leather.
Not just any movie that unfolds over a single night but specifically those involving madcap adventures across an urban or suburban landscape as part of a quest.
OK, 21st century Simpsons is not a great show. But some episodes are gems of a kind.
Not any kind of vamp, but gothic / vampire vamp.
Often addiction theme. Tend not to have many of the typical cinematic gothic and goth vamp tropes. Usually infected or subspecies rather than demon-possessed or literal undead.
Some offbeat and less well known fantasy movies.
Not all '60 horror, but solemn & grim films with gore or other disturbing images.
I use release dates, not film festival dates.
Psychic movies that are not superhero, ghost, alien, future etc.
I don't think that most of these are bad; they're simply terribly overrated - especially by current social media groupthink. If you happen to love any of them, great.
Some films that adapt, are inspired by, or are coincidentally similar to Richard Matheson's novella I Am Legend. Usually feature zompires (zombie-vampires).
Versions of Snow White, from best on down
