what would be some recommendations? I have read the basics, Dracula and Frankenstein, but I want to get more deeply into the genre and the dark aspects of it, I also real liked BloodBorne if that means anything

For the gothic and gothic horror, you should consider everything by Lovecraft, and probably a lot by Edgar Allan Poe (I haven't read much of Poe myself). They write quintessential gothic.It's as gothic as it gets.

Gothic sci fi this ones hard to pinpoint for me. Would cyberpunk fit into this? There's certainly some gothic and atmospheric elements. So perhaps I'm streching a bit. But I'd still like to recommend this as an easy way to into cyberpunk.

If you want some of the real classic stuff, this link has a sampling of works from the late 1800s/early 1900s. I'd recommend starting with Robert W. Chambers and William Hope Hodgson if you've already read some of the more obvious ones like Poe and Lovecraft.

Though it would probably be considered one of "the basics," pic fucking related.

Also (though it's not sci-fi), for those who'd be in to southern gothic, I might suggest Flannery O'Connor; Wise Blood was a fucking trip.
