Definition of horror Gothic
#6
Quote: On the other hand, many of the horror novels written today would only be horror, in the sense that it glorifies gore.

so true .... honestly, where's the poetry? It's just all bloodlust. I haven't read many Gothic Horror stories but I thought gothic horror should be something a bit .... demented and disturbed, while still being beautifully written and showing strong emotion.

For example, I heard of an upcoming movie of a take of Alice in Wonderland, where Alice becomes depressed after her parents die and Wonderland becomes demented to reflect her. (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0466663/)
