The real victims of this film are people who paid to see it. Followed by the people who then have to be told how bad it is.
Crimson Peak is a story of a feisty yet inspired Eidith Cushing (Mia Wasikowska) who has aspirations to reach thee heights of her role model Mary Shelley. After meeting Sir Thomas Sharpe (Tom Hiddleton) becomes a distinctly dull girl who seems to have no other aspirations than to be with him. So moves to his house upon a mountain of blood-red clay with his mysterious yet bizarre sister Lady Lucille Sharpe (Jessica Chastain). Where Edith has ghostly visons and is trying to find a hidden truth.
Going into this film I thought it had the potential to be good, I have always felt Guillermo del Toro’s work to be very hot or cold. I am a massive fan of both Hellboy films but after watching Pacific Rim was left dissapointed at the poor story telling. Crimson peak offers a repeat performance. Though visually impressive and drew influence from the old Universal horror films such as Bella Legosi’s Dracula.
