We can see this connection through the supernatural aspects involved in the girls’ disappearances. During the Gothic era there were a lot of these types of dark aspects that were very different from the previous Romantic era ideals. This caused many of the works and authorsto be criticized. As the movie progressed, a connection could be seen between the Gothic work Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner and Panic at the Hanging Rock. In Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner the captain and his men kill a crow and are cursed because of it. All of the men on the ship, except the captain, are mysteriously killed, leaving the captain to watch and to suffer by himself. In this movie the girls also mysteriously disappear, and they are led to the top of the mountain bya mysterious force. We can connect these stories because of the dark and supernatural aspects.
