South for the Season: Another List for those Cold Winter Viewing Nights

Here’s one of those lists, this one with some classics on it, “10 Great Southern Gothic Films” by Samuel Wigley a11825479d79a723965201eab3e4feda2s presented by BFI FILM FOREVER.  And it’s not just ten, as Wigley ends up with a list of fourteen more culled from suggestions from his readers.  Lots of Tennessee Williams here, not to mention James Dickey’s DELIVERANCE.  Finder’s credit goes to Matt Weber via Facebook’s ON THE EDGE CINEMA.

The picture, in fact, is from one of the “final fourteen,” a favorite of mine (though technically not really set in the South), THE REFLECTING SKIN, one that brings vampires into the mix.  But it does have the flavor — and you know me!  In any event, to see twenty-four sweaty, sun-beating-down suggestions to warm your winter-time viewing, one need but press here.

  1. Thanks much for this! I made notes on some that I’ve never seen –maybe heard of, but no Netflix in those days. BUT the best of the new lot is WINTER’S BONE. An incredibly fine preformance all around. The lead is perfect for the role of a daughter faced with far more than most folks ever have to deal with. Scarey, too.
