Strange noises in the night from the house on the hill. Mysterious creatures are seen only by the light of the full moon. A new vicar arrives in town to take the vacant position after the mysterious disappearance of the previous vicar. A wax museum opens, to the delight of the townsfolk, who remark upon the incredibly life-like models.

Gothic Society brings the world of Gothic horror to the sleepy English countryside or the sprawling metropolis of Victorian London. Vampires, werewolves, spirits, and demons haunt the rain-soaked streets, but the most terrifying evil of all hides beneath the veneer of gentility of the citizenry. Bargains have been made, passions inflamed, and plots hatched with unspeakable powers.
