Twenty-first century media have seen a rise not only in remakes and ‘re-imaginings’, but also transmedia adaptations, works based in nostalgic callbacks, fan-written versions of media, and genre-bending remixes. While a wider body of work exists on transmedia storytelling and adaptation, Gothic horror remakes are still a rich and largely unexplored subject, even as interest in the remake phenomenon continues to grow. And yet, the history of Gothic horror in film and television is rich in re-adaptations, and re-conceptualizations, where the literary roots of Gothic horror tropes, narratives, and characterizations continue to resurface and uncannily return.
