Gothic without the paranormal, even ambiguously.
Not all '60 horror, but solemn & grim films with gore or other disturbing images.
Gothic nightclub vamps, urban fantasy, clans, hunters, detectives, black leather.
These are released several years apart, unlike the 'twin movie' phenomenon of very similar films released within a year or two of each other.
Films featuring Stone Age people and prehistoric environments.
Not including Snow White nor Harry Potter
Vampire books (and their later adaptations), movies, and TV of 2008.
An intriguing emerging genre inspired by mumblecore and budgetary constraints.
Children & teen fantasy adaptations that tried to replicate the success of Harry Potter.
Some offbeat and less well known fantasy movies.
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.
Note: I hate some of these.
I use release dates, not film festival dates.
Even though I'm an atheist, I still enjoy the occasional religious movie.
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).
Movies that came after The Matrix that seem to be influenced by it.
Some films featuring vampires reminiscent of those of pre-Dracula literature or of folklore.
Disney at its best > Miyazaki, Pixar...
Versions of Snow White, from best on down
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.
