Gothic fun

The low-budget British "Mystery and Imagination" series may not look like much to 21st century viewers spoiled by HD TV production values, but for connoisseurs of classic Gothic tales and supernatural horror it's a box of vintage delights. This high camp adaptation of Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu's classic thriller features bravura melodramatic performances in an atmosphere somewhere between the original "Dark Shadows" soap opera and "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." If it sounds like it might be to your taste, definitely give it a try.
