Although this film probably only works for a certain type of individual, I thought that this film didnt have a single full moment, entertaining for the entire two hour mark. The atmosphere felt amazing, the costumes and visuals were extravagant, and the story kept you guessing right up until the end. Although the CGI ghosts were questionable, the real life threat of a deranged sibling duo ensured intensity and terror throughout. Plus, how could I not mention the brilliant casting? If this review interested you, I'd be sure to give it a watch.
Story/Screenplay: (3.5/5) A more or less original suspense drama with a few ghosts thrown in.
Duration/Tempo: (3/5) At 1 hour and 59 minutes, it's a long movie that felt average in length.
Cast & Crew: (3.5/5) Mia Wasikowska and Tom Hiddleston delivered good performances.
Summary: (3.5/5) The film didn't feel short, but the story and cast were good. A thumbs up.
For a haunted house story, you would think the ghosts would have played a central part in the plot. But you could have made this same movie without any ghosts, so the whole movie comes across as style over substance.
More of a victory of style over substance in this creepy ghost story from Guillermo del Toro. Some nice Gothic touches and a sumptuous feel give it a genuine Grand Guignol feel but the plot isn't really meaty enough. Think a sort of pulpy version Wuthering Heights or Jane Eyre with added gore and you won't be far off the mark. The lavish theatricals are complimented by a competent cast but they all feel too distant and unreal to engender much in the way of sympathy.
Very bad pacing, I felt the ghost was a bit meh.
No need to be as long as it was, certainly didn't keep me excited and on the edge of my seat.
Bruh, Imma bout to Crimson PEAK! UH!
It has a creepy atmosphere, a solid cast, and unique and imaginative visuals, as always with Guillermo del Toro, but its narrative is certainly flawed.
It was an original story with beautiful details. The ending seems a bit rushed.
The cinematography, costume design and acting was very well done with what they had. However the story was lacking and it was rather plain
Two stars for the beautiful cinematography... the movie stunk.
