Movie Review: Crimson Peak


SYNOPSIS:
After marrying the charming and seductive Sir Thomas Sharpe (Tom Hiddleston), young Edith (Mia Wasikowska) finds herself swept away to his remote gothic mansion in the English hills. Also living there is Lady Lucille (Jessica Chastain), Thomas' alluring sister and protector of her family's dark secrets. Able to communicate with the dead, Edith tries to decipher the mystery behind the ghostly visions that haunt her new home. As she comes closer to the truth, Edith may learn that true monsters are made of flesh and blood.
 
 
Martha's Thoughts:

Del Toro never disappoints with beautiful visuals even when they
are supposed to be grotesque.
 
Tom Hiddleston is a heartbreaker in this movie.
 
Mia Wasikowska is beautifully tragic.
 
Jessica Chastain is strange and foreboding.
 
Charlie Hunham from Sons of Anarchy in a SUPPORTING ROLE...
he killed it. Awesome work.
 
The cast is AWESOME.
 
The story reminds me of something Edgar Allan Poe would write.
It has the feel of Fall of the House of Usher along with some other elements
of Poe's various writings. It's gothic for sure... and TOTALLY worth it.
 
And yes, you do see Tom Hiddleston's butt for a little bit.
It's a nice one too.
 
 
Martha's Rating:
4/5 stars

  1. I have been DYING to see this movie. It never came to a theater here, so I've been waiting for it to hit Netflix or Apple TV. It looks gorgeous.
