Steampunk Moviesby mardilouise | created - 24 Mar 2013 | updated - 24 Mar 2013 | Public
I'm obsessed with Steampunk and couldn't find a list of movies in this genre. Most of the movies are not strictly Steampunk but has some or all of the elements considered relevant for the genre: alternative history (especially neo-victorianism), clockwork or steam powered devices, anachronistic technology etc.
