Star Wars Gothic Picture

Star Wars is (as everyone knows) an epic sci fi adventure that lies close to old mythology and the fantasy genre. But how much would it take to make Star Wars into a gothic, victorian horror story? It has all the ingredients:

The destiny/curse (and terrible secret) that binds Luke, Leia and Darth Vader together.

Dark and mystic power that is close to occult magic.

The Villain has a black "Dracula" cape and the Emperor wears a cloak.

The Emperor dwells in his high tower on the Death Star. Laughing madly as he shoots infernal lightning from his hands.

Isn't Obi Wan Kenobi almost like a priest or mystic that helps the heroes to complete their task? The Van Helsing of the Star Wars universe.

The scene of Luke and Leia kissing can be linked to the depraved incestual relationship that is the shame of brother and sister Usher in Edgar Allan Poes short horror story.

In honoring if this vision of mine I have made a Star Wars poster from photos and wallpapers but tried to "gothyfi" it. I hope you like it.
