Directed by Guillermo del Toro, Crimson Peak tells about Edith Cushing, who is running away from a family tragedy. When her heart is stolen by a seductive stranger, she is swept away to a house atop a mountain of blood-red clay. As she comes closer to the truth, Edith may learn that true monsters are made of flesh and blood. Between desire and darkness, between mystery and madness, lies the truth behind Crimson Peak.
What [Guillermo] del Toro had in mind when shooting Crimson Peak was probably a stylish gothic period piece in the same acclaimed lane as Pan's Labyrinth. Unfortunately, Crimson Peak fails to work on that level.
All the carefully orchestrated color schemes and all the dark corridors and secret chambers and all the flowing red metaphors in the world can't accelerate the slow patches, or make us care about lead characters.
