A Gothic love-letter from Guillermo del Toro. Even though I guessed most of the twists well in advance, I still absolutely loved the look of this film and the decaying mansion has to be one of the most impressive sets in recent history. Loved the look of the creepy ghosts as well, plus the impressive costumes and the acting from all the leads, especially Jessica Chastain. Worth a look from the serious horror connoisseur.

"Crimson Peak" by Yojimbo

A bookish young American woman falls for and marries a dashing but enigmatic English nobleman, but upon moving to England she is haunted by ghoulish apparitions that seem to inhabit his decrepit old ancestral home.

Guillermo Del Toro's latest foray into the macabre wears its many influences on its sleeve; the story is a variation on the themes of Alfred Hitchcock's Rebecca and Suspicion, the Gothic visual trappings are very much of the Tim Burton school and the premise of a gruesome past event imposing itself upon the present in ghostly form is shared with Del Toro's own The Devil's Backbone. Even our heroine's surname - Cushing - reflects its Hammer Horror sensibilities. Del Toro is clearly trying to create a more literary, almost theatrical feel to the film, but for me this …

Guillermo del Toro entwirft verschachtelte Welten, überwältigt den Zuschauer mit Details und Symbolen. Crimson Peak ist eine Welt voll sexueller Passion und dunklen Geheimnissen. Es gibt Monster, menschliche und übernatürliche, aber die schrecklichsten Erfahrungen sind die überbordenden Emotionen. Del Toro reiht sich ein in die Grusel-Tradition des victorianischen Englands. Die amerikanische Millionen-Erbin Edith Cushing (Mia Wasikowska) sah als Kind den Geist ihrer Mutter als Schatten an der Wand mit langen Fingern. Später verfasste sie Geistergeschichten als Metapher der Vergangenheit. Sie unterbricht ihre Isolation als Schriftstellerin als die mysteriösen Geschwister Thomas und Lucille Sharp (Tom Hiddleston und Jessica Chastain) aus England in die Stadt kommen. Sie tragen zwar …

Magnificent gothic suspense but not horror

"Ghosts are real. This I know."

"Crimson Peak" is visually overwhelming and ingeniously devised. Although it was a bit of a disappointment for me, it made a crushing, lasting impression on me on the other hand. Not because of the story itself or the cautious use of special effects, but the overall atmosphere and detailed decoration of this Gothic love drama. I assumed that this would be an excellent horror. And that because of the trailer. Normally I try to avoid trailers. But avoiding trailers in a theater is rather difficult. Eagerly I saw that it was about a house that comes to life. I was expecting a baroque-looking Amityville House. The house wasn't disappointing. A Victorian, ghostly ruin full of dark corridors, murky caverns and sinister secrets. The Adams family would be …
