Halloween isn’t a holiday I personally pay any attention to nor has it been one I’ve celebrated. That said, one way I acknowledge the day is by indulging in Gothic or spooky period dramas. This is a pastime I am familiar with and very fond of. Nonetheless, talking about spooky and romantic period dramas is always fun!
Below I share a few of them you’ll find on the list for your reading pleasure in one neat little collection. See this List in its Entirety on Silver Petticoat Review →

There’s our list of 20 Spooky and Romantic Period Dramas Perfect for All Hallows Eve (at least for now!). I’m curious: what spooky, Gothic, dramatic or romantic films do you enjoy watching over All Hallow’s Eve?? I’d love to read your recommendations! Comment down below with your thoughts.
**UPDATE: Since its original publication, I’ve watched this film, and am conflicted. It’s a “fun” sci-fi film that’s mostly humorous but it quickly dips into a dark “darkness” (does this make sense!?) that doesn’t fit the tone. Someday I might review it. Or I might not. Thoughts!?
