Do you think The Following's Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) is dark but dreamy? Wait until you see him oiled up in ancient Roman battle gear as he plays the fierce military leader Mark Antony. The show's a bit violent, but it's also sexy. If you love historical drama, we're sure you'll be hooked.

3)  Jane Eyre with Mia Wasikowska & Michael Fassbender on Netflix

Mr. Rochester's (Michael Fassbender) dark secret will send chills down your spine as he falls for the modest and unassuming Jane (Mia Wasikowska). The young Alice In Wonderland actress truly knows the art of restraint and makes this version of Charlotte Brontë's romantic tale quietly powerful.

4) World War Z is available on Netflix June 13

Need a zombie fix? We recommend getting it while staring at the hunky Brad Pitt. But he's not even the best part of this thriller — the action is amazing. The filmmakers looked at the way the human body moves when it undergoes an epileptic seizure to inspire the weird, jerky convulsions seen in these zombies. They also give the film a sense of epic doom by making it a global crisis, shooting in several countries and instilling the feeling of a true apocalypse.
