Retweeted by Colin Harker @AmeliaMangan @PhilNobileJr Sounds like it would make an amazing future Valancourt edition, if the stars are ever right. @AmeliaMangan @PhilNobileJr Welp, now I know what I want to watch next. @HooklandGuide This guy is almost laughably delusional.

Retweeted by Colin Harker @PhilNobileJr William Castle arguably made an art-form out of trigger warnings. @FANGORIA One of my favorites. @HooklandGuide I’m sorry you have to deal with harassing creeps like this.

@RomGothHolly Those trees are forever branded in my memory as unpleasant obstacles on the way to Udolpho 🤣 @regcrawford3 @ThatEricAlper I want to see a cinematic adaptation of this. @RomGothHolly I have an intense love/hate relationship with Udolpho, so I can understand: love all the portions act… @RomGothHolly She truly is. 🖤 @RomGothHolly Once I have finished reading Godwin's fictional bibliography (alas, I only have two novels left and I… @RomGothHolly I still need to read that one! @RomGothHolly There's always an utterly fascinating story tragically tucked away in Radcliffe's novels.

I’m definitely going to hunt it down. @cybersphynx I think you'd enjoy it!Just watched The Blood Queen (2015; dir. Andrei Konst) on Amazon Prime. What a hidden gem of a Gothic horror film.… hell, this looks right up my line. @DerekSykes17 @thevelocipastor I am 100% behind this 🤣 @DerekSykes17 *it's @DerekSykes17 Right? All its missing is an equally insane sequel! @aweirdmisc @sjmay92 @MyFavGhost Oh my God this is perfect 🤣 @OracleEpps @DerekSykes17 I like your attitude! 😂 @INeveenBadr I would definitely recommend the novel Melmoth the Wanderer to begin with.

Eerie... @MyFavGhost I'm with Byron on this 😂 @thefilmviews It's well worth it. It's like taking a dive into the nightmarish rabbithole that is Maturin's philosophical imagination. @thefilmviews It's brilliant, right? Intensely frustrating but intensely brilliant. @thefilmviews I have a Stockholm Syndrome relationship to this novel, so this hits almost too close to home 🤣 @Blake2_0 I mercifully never heard of him until I saw the tweet you were responding to, but he seems disturbing. @Blake2_0 This is so creepy. @kymwald @PhilsNovels @michelekwas @sharagodwinson @dustinhitz @JSuzanneFrank @OpatrnyTova @aferreiraauthor @J5rson there's a board game based on The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and it has a John Melmoth card.

So chillingly perfect. @Lambton_Worm Terrific! @Lambton_Worm I just listened to the trailer and I love the voice acting -- Howie's casting is perfect. @Lambton_Worm Oh my, I love that this exists! Very much looking forward to giving this a listen.
