Best of the Dark Side: 13 Terrific Goth/Horror TV Links

1. Being Human

A vampire (Mitchell), a werewolf (George) and a ghost (Annie) share a flat. This currently is the show I look forward to the most every week. It airs on BBC America. I have a bit of a crush on George (when he's in human form, not when he's a gross hairy werewolf) and I adore the quirky way that Annie continually makes unsolicited and unnecessary cups of tea, piling them up around the apartment.

2. Coffin Cafe

A social network for lovers of Twilight, Vampire Diaries, True Blood, Charmed, and other supernatural films and TV shows.

3. The Addams Family

The classic black-and-white TV show. I can't believe they aired something this weird and macabre in the 1960s! That is so cool.

4. Dark Shadows

For a show that has such a rabid fan base, it's interesting that there aren't very many high quality fan sites that are still updated in 2010. I wonder if that will improve as we get closer to Tim Burton beginning filming his Dark Shadows movie.

5. The Dead Zone

I preferred the Christopher Walken movie, but Anthony Michael Hall did a good job.

6. Forever Knight

Anybody here remember this show?

7. Gormenghast

I've never actually seen Gormenghast, though I own the DVD. My best friend's cat is named Steerpike, and I had totally no inkling where that name came from! Now that I realize this stars a youthful Johnathan Rhys-Meyers, I might go put the DVD in right this minute!

8. American Gothic

Whoah, I hadn't realized that 1970s heartthrob Shaun Cassidy produced this horror TV series.

9. Kindred: The Embraced

I wasn't really into this show, but I had so many goth friends and acquaintances who were semi-obsessed with it. Since they talked about it non-stop, it was almost as if I had seen every episode myself.

10. Moonlight

I feel dumb, I had never heard of this show until about two years ago. You'd think in all my research and wanderings on the Net I would have heard about it long before then. The show is about a vampire who works as a private investigator.

12. The Outer Limits

I actually never had all that many links to this, one of my favorite TV shows to watch late at night or early in the morning.

13. Poltergeist: The Legacy

This was a truly bad show, but it had tons of fans back in the day. I spent a lot of time adding and removing Geocities fan pages when they got created and then melted down or got abandoned. The Legacyweb site has been going strong since 1996 - now that's dedication!
