More Info:
  • Sheila O'Malley

    Crimson Peak's atmosphere crackles with sexual passion and dark secrets. There are a couple of monsters (supernatural and human), but the gigantic emotions are the most terrifying thing onscreen. Full Review
  • Jason Gorber

    Guillermo del Toro’s latest dive into the darkness is a sumptuous, beautifully constructed tale that feels both archaic and inviting.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Jake Cole

    Guillermo del Toro's fussiest, most compartmentalized construction, filled with the most powerful sense of repression and delusion.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    While the digital effects are undeniably contemporary, Crimson Peak is otherwise a period homage that mostly plays like a period film, rarely giving in to contemporary notions of pacing and payoff. When the scares do arrive, however, they’re effectively unsettling.

  • Steve Persall

    Horror is an impatient person's game these days, and Crimson Peak isn't hurried at all. It seduces with creepily erotic atmosphere, and performances in perfect tune with the script's melodrama.

  • Eric Kohn

    Beyond its surface pleasures, Crimson Peak also confronts the demons of modern entertainment. The movie frightens and surprises us in familiar ways, but at the same time issues a plea for restraint.

  • Drew McWeeny

    This is a film of tactile decadence, such a rich sensory experience that it's almost suffocating.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Dan Jolin

    It may be a little overwrought for some tastes, borderline camp at points, but if you're partial to a bit of Victorian romance with Hammer horror gloop and big, frilly night-gowns, GDT delivers an uncommon treat.

    Empire Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    Its sombre sincerity and hypnotic, treasure-box beauty make Crimson Peak feel like a film out of time – but Del Toro, his cast and his crew carry it off without a single postmodern prod or smirk. The film wears its heart on its sleeve, along with its soul and most of its intestines.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    It doesn’t always seem to know what it wants to be. But it’s still full of marvels.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    Here’s the thing about Crimson Peak, which is lurid and ghastly and immensely enjoyable and frequently spectacular and also thinner and less substantial than it wants to be, like a meal eaten in a dream. Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    Guillermo del Toro’s gothic fantasy-romance Crimson Peak is outrageously sumptuous, gruesomely violent and designed to within an inch of its life.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    Del Toro’s predictably impeccable production design and tonal flourishes help bring the film to life, aided by strong performances from his leads, especially Jessica Chastain, who gives the otherwise reverent proceedings just the right amount of jolt.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    Though this movie waltzes to its own strange rhythm, del Toro hits every note.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Russ Fischer

    Never entirely satisfying as a drama, Crimson Peak is visually dazzling, boasting lively and at times even transfixing performances that keep the story’s blood flowing.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    For the two hours it lasted I wasn't asking any questions, only giggling, squirming, screaming, and swooning.

    Slate Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    If the film is ultimately an exercise in atmosphere, it is without question a triumph on that front. The rich textures and almost tactile visuals are astonishing.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    Crimson Peak is a cobwebs-and-candelabras chamber piece that’s so preoccupied with being visually stunning it forgets to be scary.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Katie Rife

    Unsurprisingly for a Del Toro film, the production design is the real star of Crimson Peak.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    A ghost story in which superior camerawork, costumes and production design work together to put the audience in a trance. It's tough on actors not to get swallowed up in the scenery.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Director Guillermo del Toro’s unique visual style is on display but the story is predictable, the characters are flat, and the supernatural elements are red herrings. To paraphrase a character, this isn’t so much a ghost story as it is a “story with ghosts.”

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    This is a film that believes deeply in ghosts, and half of them are in its director’s head.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    Chastain and Wasikowska take center stage while Hiddleston flutters around like one of Allerdale’s huge black moths. Watching the women square off within del Toro’s eye-popping, painterly palette is a feast for the eyes, if not particularly substantial fare for the mind.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Del Toro reminds us just how chilling bumping into the supernatural is supposed to be, just how stomach churning violence is and just how many shades of red blood shows us, from first spurt to crusty dust.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Josh Winning

    A curious hybrid of grim fairytale and gory horror, del Toro’s ninth feature is striking but sorely lacking in surprises. Great ghosts, but del Toro is capable of so much more.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Martyn Conterio

    Crimson Peak is locked in by a somnambulist, formulaic vibe and comes off as contented to go through Gothic 101 motions without recourse to reinvention or refreshing vigour.

    CineVue Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    The film is too busy, and in some ways too gross, to sustain an effective atmosphere of dread. It tumbles into pastiche just when it should be swooning and sighing with earnest emotion.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Crimson Peak's astonishing visuals don't enhance its story (co-written by the director and Matthew Robbins); they overwhelm it, encouraging us to stand back and admire the look when we should be involved in the emotional mechanics of this lurid tale.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Tom Huddleston

    All three actors work hard... and when the melodrama hits fever pitch, Crimson Peak lurches into life. But overall this lacks weight and intensity: a Brontë-esque bauble smeared in twenty-first-century slickness.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    The gifted fantasy/sci-fi/horror specialist has made a film that's very bloody, and bloody stylish at that, one that's certainly unequaled in its field for the beauty of its camerawork, sets, costumes and effects. But it's also conventionally plotted and not surprising or scary at all, as it resurrects hoary horror tropes from decades ago to utilize them in conventional, rather than fresh or subversive ways

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    Crimson Peak ends up feeling like a bit of make-work, a project to keep the visionary filmmaker busy until something that truly sparks his passion comes along.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Del Toro gets the ghostly elements right, with red and black flesh-torn spooks wailing warnings to the receptive Edith. But he goes wildly overboard in aiming for atmosphere after the story shifts to the Sharpes’ crumbling English manor.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Crimson Peak is a gorgeous mediocrity.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Not even the film's occasional bursts of ultra-violence, or the endlessly oozing red clay, or Hiddleston crying a red tear, or Chastain swanning around in one flaming crimson ball gown after another, can infuse this gorgeous bore with anything like red-blooded suspense.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    For sheer, sepulchral eye candy at this most horror-ific time of year, del Toro’s Crimson Peak leaves Tim Burton – reigning misfit king of hyper-stylized, goth-y weirdness – in the dust and well-nigh forgotten.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    Aflame with color and awash in symbolism, this undeniably ravishing yet ultimately disappointing haunted-house meller is all surface and no substance, sinking under the weight of its own self-importance into the sanguine muck below.

    Variety Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    The film by the stylish fantasist Guillermo del Toro looks marvelous, but has a vein of narrative muck at its core.
