There’s plenty of doom and Gothic gloom in here but at its heart, this is a beautiful story (albeit a rather unusual one) of courage, and love.

Story: A baronet named Thomas Sharpe (Hiddleston) travels to America to meet a wealthy industrialist named Carter Cushing (Beaver) to seek funding for a newfangled mining device. However, his daughter, the lovely Edith (Wasikowska) soon falls for Sharpe. A turn of events leads her across the Atlantic to Cumbria, England, where she finds herself in a mansion that almost lives and breathes, replete with hoary horrors and sinister secrets.

Review: What is immediately striking about this movie is the immaculate camerawork, framing and detailing. For example, when tea is stirred in an antique china cup, you hear the faint rasp and tinkle of silver spoon against porcelain. The crunch of leather hobnail boots on virgin snow is audible. An ancient bedroom door, when cautiously opened, emanates a symphony of creepy creaks. And when Edith holds aloft a candelabrum to help illuminate her path through dark, corroded corridors, you can almost hear the flames burning away on the fat candles.

Writer of Goth-horror Edith, who lost her mother when she was little, adores her dad. However, she has some kind of a gift for seeing ghosts. So much so, that she believes that ghosts are real. Early in her life, her deceased mother's apparition warns her about great danger that she'll face in the future. But all of that is swept away when the earnest but impoverished Sharpe enters her father's office (and her life) to petition for financial patronage. While he doesn't receive that (Cushing takes an instant dislike for Sharpe's sense of entitlement thanks to his title), he does win over the Edith's heart, much to her dad's displeasure. Sharpe's sister Lucille also takes an instant dislike for Edith; she thinks the latter is 'just a child'.

There's plenty of doom and Gothic gloom in here but at its heart, this is a beautiful story (albeit a rather unusual one) of courage, and love.

Tom Hiddlestone and Jessica Chastain are fabulous in this film;he costumes were amazing. The atmosphere really added to the somber story and my one gripe would be the CGI used for the ghosts.Crimson Peak is a slight but gorgeous movie without a genre. It doesn't quite have the scares of a horror movie or the emotion of a romance, but maybe that doesn't matter.
