Earlier on in the year, I was asked on Twitter by host Ben (@filmsonthebayou) to take part in a Gothica Hall of Fame. In this, I would be suggesting a Gothica film for the group of 20 to film, and everyone would watch each other’s suggesting, making it 20 films to watch.
Whilst there were several pushbacks of the date, many burnouts and me putting myself through this on a busy schedule, I managed to complete the 20 films. I ended up enjoying a large majority of these films, and I did not give any film less than 2/5. Whilst none of the films got a perfect 5/5 for me, the first two on the list came very close to getting that score.
Without further ado, here is my ranking of the Gothica Hall of Fame, with links to the people who suggested each film. Make sure to check them all out.
