What are the characteristics of the Gothic Romance?

Agreed.

I think that the film What Lies Beneath (2000 staring Michellle Pfeiffer and Harrison Ford) follows some of the conventions of the gothic romance novel quite closely in this regard. I watched it not long after reading Rebecca and couldn't help but make comparisons.


I totally agree. A truly great gothic movie/ghost story. Loads of comparisons with Rebecca there as you say, loved the twist that he (Harrison Ford) didn't really love his wife but wanted to kill her, Du Maurier and Poe in there surely.
