* ''Series/AmericanHorrorStoryCoven'', which takes place in NewOrleans, Louisiana. And ''Series/AmericanHorrorStoryFreakShow'' takes place in Jupiter, Florida in 1952 (back when Jupiter was still part of the South, rather than the Northern-and-Cuban sprawl emanating from Miami).
* The [adult swim] series ''Series/TheHeartSheHoller'' wallows in the clichés of the genre, gleefully cranking the trashiness and degeneracy UpToEleven.

* HPLovecraft's ''[[Literature/TheCallOfCthulhu The Call Of Cthulhu]]'' abandons the traditional [[LovecraftCountry New England]] as a setting for monstrous buried secrets, wandering Southwards to the dank swamps of Louisiana, where Cthulhu's cultists gather for celebration with orgies and human sacrifices.

* ''Literature/ARoseForEmily'', by Main/WilliamFaulkner, could well be the poster child of this trope. Emily Grierson's mansion, a symbol of better days long since past, is described in the most wretched terms of rot and decay--and the house hides terrible secrets.

* Creator/StephenKing, T-Bone Burnett and JohnMellencamp created a musical called ''Ghost Brothers of Darkland County'' which plays with a lot of the tropes associated with the genre. It also contains several shout-outs to FlanneryOConnor, TennesseeWilliams and WilliamFaulkner, but with a supernatural elements thrown.

* A lot of the imagery in Music/{{Beyonce}}'s visual special for her album ''Lemonade'' falls into this, much of it being shot in Louisiana.

See also DeepSouth, Southern Gothic's mother trope. Compare LovecraftCountry, CampbellCountry, NordicNoir, and {{Uberwald}}.

{{Uberwald}}. Compare and Contrast WeirdWest, which could be thought of as the [[ThirstyDesert sun scorched]] counterpart to the [[SwampsAreEvil dark and humid rot]] of Southern Gothic. Though distinct in tone and setting, the two can blend in border areas between the DeepSouth and the WildWest.

The creepy, gothic version of the rural Southeast United States. Scenes show dying vegetation, decaying plantations, rusty farm implements, forbidding swamps with ''something'' lurking within, and frighteningly expressionless folk standing around doing...nothing, except staring at the protagonists.
