Getting tired of the same old rom-coms? How about this: a passionate romance story submerged within a haunting thriller plagued by deaths, ghosts, and a sinister housekeeper. Intrigued? Well, in case it hasn’t rung a bell yet, we’re talking about Netflix’s upcoming romance thriller Rebecca, and if the trailer’s any indication, then viewers with the stomach for a slow-burn scare are definitely up for a treat.
The film starts with a whirlwind romance between a young woman and a handsome widower named Maxim de Winter. Swept up in their passion, the pair hastily decide to get married as the new Mrs. de Winter moves into her husband’s imposing family estate dubbed the Manderley. Netflix’s full synopsis reads: “Naive and inexperienced, she begins to settle into the trappings of her new life, but finds herself battling the shadow of Maxim’s first wife, the elegant and urbane Rebecca, whose haunting legacy is kept alive by Manderley’s sinister housekeeper Mrs. Danvers.”
Based on the 1938 gothic novel of the same name, the movie stars Hollywood actors Lily James, Armie Hammer, and Kristin Scott Thomas.
