While the music for the trailer of the 2020 version may seem to send this film veering towards the direction of something that could be considered camp, it’s important to remember that the original film adaptation of Rebecca is still highly regarded as one of the scariest psychological dramas of all time.
This contemporary iteration appears to be aiming towards nabbing the same level of prestige, as the cinematography for the 2020 Rebecca was done by Laurie Rose, who was responsible for the sweeping landscape cinematography in this summer’s cottagecore period drama, Summerland.
Rebecca was the film that made Hitchcock famous in the United States after a two-decade career making films in England, and became both a commercial and critical success.
It’s been 80 years since Alfred Hitchcock adapted Daphne du Maurier’s gothic novel, Rebecca, into a feature film.
The 2020 adaptation of Rebecca stars Armie Hammer as Maxim de Winter, the handsome widower of the titular Rebecca, a role formerly inhabited by Laurence Olivier in 1940.
