Gothic books made into films

It has been claimed that Dracula has been made into more films than any other single book. That’s quite something for Bram Stoker, a shame he didn’t live to see it as he died in 1912.

I’m no expert on films so I’ll point you to the blog post https://ainsworthandfriends.wordpress.com/2013/05/24/gothic-film-a-brief-history/ about Gothic films.

Here is a very delightful old Jekyll and Hyde.

The book is currently taught in school and frequently performed on the stage. I went to see a production earlier this year which was as fresh as if it had just been written and as gripping as if I didn’t know the story.
