Gothic Romance movie/TV adaptations

I'm very much in agreement on this. I keep expecting a Mary Stewart adaptation to show up on "Masterpiece Theatre's Mystery!."

"Mystery!" did showcase "The Wyvern Mystery" a few years ago, with Naomi Watts. It was adapted from the Sheridan Le Fanu novel (which I haven't read). It was done fairly well, but it was a little muddled.

There was also an adaptation of Le Fanu's "Uncle Silas" (which I have read) but I haven't seen this adaptation. "Uncle Silas" was written during the Victorian era, and is very much in the Gothic Romance tradition. It's quite a good read, and would probably be a lot more popular today if the heroine weren't such a Victorian drip.
