GOTHIC (1986)

Have you seen Ken Russell's movie GOTHIC?

If you have not, do so immediately.

If you have, maybe it's time to re-watch it?

The film is an amazing, visual treat that is filled with strange, nightmare visions and dramatic acting. It is a fictional document of Mary Shelly (Natasha Richardson) visiting Lord Byron (Gabriel Byrne) the night she comes up with FRANKENSTEIN. Julian Sands is in it as well and he's as over the top as usual. Myriam Cyr is also present in all her creepy-beauty glory.

This romantic, gothic tale is well worth a watch. The visuals stay swirling in your mind after you watch it like some sort of nightmare dream state. I have to say, I would love to spend a night like this somewhere! :)
