Honestly, horror is the main innovative technique that Mary Shelley used in Frankenstein. Before she wrote Frankenstein at age 18, there was no other known horror/ghost story. Even though we might not think of it as that now, it was actually quite a terrifying read during that time. She used suspense and foreshadowing to capture the reader's attention.
