Crimson Peak (2015)
Duration: 119 min
There is so much to love about this movie. The costumes, the sets, the cast, the story. I just don’t know where to begin. With today’s advances in technology I rarely buy a hard copy of any movie but this is one that I actually purchased and plan to watch regularly.
The cast is utterly amazing! Starring Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston, Jim Beaver, and Burn Gorman just to name a few in this star studded cast.The acting is amazing for te most part. There are a few scenes that could have been better, particularily by Jim Beaves whose years on Supernatural as Bobby may have influenced his performance in this movie, but the performance by others made up for this in my opinion.
Another reason to love this movie is the talent of Guillermo del Toro. This man has true artistic vision. The visuals in this movie are one reason I wanted to make sure to see this in theaters. The colors, the contrast of Victorian fashion with the decay of the architecture of the time, the elements of the horror designs, the creature designs. Absolutely wonderful!
Some people complained about the effects but I was very happy with them.
