Beautiful Creatures
Based on the popular YA novel by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, this teen romance centers on the love that brews between Ethan and Lena, the new girl at school who is on the verge of making a major decision. As a Caster (read: witch), she'll have to choose a side: light or dark. And it's a decision that could impact the entirety of their small Southern town. Alden Ehrenreich, Alice Englert, Jeremy Irons, Viola Davis, and Emma Thompson co-star; Richard LaGravenese directs.

Romance can hit new heights when mixed with elements of fantasy. From fairies to furies, wizards to werewolves, and a crime-fighting succubus, these titles offer fantastical characters engaged in fascinating tales of romance, and inner struggles that's results could rattle the world.

Lost Girl (2010) This Canadian TV series follows a young woman named Bo who has a thirst she doesn’t understand and cannot quench. She craves sex, but feeds on her partner's essence until they die. After saving the life of a quirky con artist from a sexual predator, Bo discovers she's a real-life succubus and so enters the world of the Fae, where werewolves, sirens, furies, vampires and demons lurk. In each episode she is urged to pick a side (light or dark) as she uses her powers of persuasion to solve mysteries. It's basically like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but with more nudity than American TV typically allows. Anna Silk, Kris Holden-Ried, Ksenia Solo, and Richard Howland co-star. Seasons 1 & 2 are now streaming.

Merlin (1998) This magical mini-series centers on the story of the mythic Merlin. Created by a dark fairy angling to bring worshippers back to the old ways, Merlin is born to be a powerful sorcerer. But as he grows, he begins to resent his creator and vows to do only good with his new powers. But can he keep up his pledge when the life of his beloved is threatened? Sam Neill, Miranda Richardson star; Isabella Rossellini, Helena Bonham Carter and Martin Short co-star.

Jack & Diane (2012) Bradley Rust Gray's grungy and graphic follow-up to his acclaimed indie drama The Exploding Girl centers on the troubled love story between two girls who meet by chance in New York City. Diane is girly and waifish; Jack is a tomboy with a tough exterior. But when fate seems dedicated to prying them apart, Diane's torment transforms her into something monstrous. Juno Temple and Riley Keough star.
