Goths have been a source of curiosity, outrage, self-expression, and fear since the 1970s. Inspired by the New Romantic fashions and Edwardian era, the goth umbrella is wide but cohesive, with various genres reaching beyond the traditional modern subculture represented by some of the best goths in movies today.
Goth representation began long before this concrete subculture developed. Gothic literature has existed since the late 18th century, and some of the media's most beloved goths made their first appearance on the silver screen. From 1915 to today, the best goth characters - including a fair number of comic-book goths - have sent our cultural environment to darker and more romantic depths, and the best goth characters in movies prove that.
