Some of Cherie Priest's early novels absolutely nail the aesthetic I think you're looking for, although they're mostly set around Chatanooga or Northern Florida rather than NOLa. Truman Capote's "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" is absolute must-read/must-watch.

Note that I specifically used the term 'Southern Gothic' in the original post. ;-)
