Public Domain characters are updated with a horror themeTropeworthy? Description Needs Help Already have? Better Name
A trend today is to take a Public Domain Character and add a horror element. Subtrope of X Meets Y. (NOTE: I know most of the ones I'm listing to start off have no context. I haven't seen/read any of them, just going by Popcultural Osmosis and their Exactly What It Says on the Tin titles. Help with brief descriptions would be appreciated.)
- Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter
- Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
- Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
- Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters
- Helen Killer, a comic book about Helen Keller as a top government spy.
- Kill Shakespeare
- The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, to the extent that characters from mundane fiction are lumped into the same universe as Dracula and War of the Worlds.
