Crimson Peak (2015)
Genre: Drama, Fantasy, Horror, Romance
This film is one of those horror movies that has an overriding narrative rather than loads of gory or scary scenes thrown in. It had a nice balance of feeling like a romantic period drama while masking a dark, gothic ghost story 🙂 . The beginning had you thrown in at the deep end, the ghosts were really terrifying and looked awesome plus the overall scenery was nice. The colours where vivid and helped the overall change in atmosphere as the film progress. The three main actors (Mia Wasikowska, Tom Hiddleston and Jessica Chastain) were truly amazing 😀 . Their characters where believable and their “chemistry” on screen had you enthralled. The romance was convincing, worked well for the story. Yes, I will admit it got to about half way through the film and it got predicable 😛 . However, that was minor as the narrative was still interesting and I quite honestly wasn’t sure how things were going to turn out 😛 . It is a really good horror for those who like a touch more of story than scares. Enjoy 🙂
I give this film 4 Stars out of 5!
