Reviewer Rating Review
Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine88 - Please don't go into Crimson Peak looking for a Blumhouse Productions type horror movie, cause you won't find it, you'll be disappointed and you'll want to mock this film, which won't be fair. Crimson Peak is being categorized as a Gothic Romance and that's what you'll find. Which suits me perfectly, as the film pays a bit of homage to my very favorite movie of all time - Alfred Hitchcock's REBECCA (1940)

Sober Film Critic James Brown88 - Chock full of disgusting chills, well-crafted plot twists, and thoroughly developed characters, Crimson Peak boasts something that horror films rarely do these days — a strong story worth telling that's not just about ghosts or demons.

MaddWolf Hope70 - Gorgeous period pieces drip with symbolism and menace, creating an environment ideal for the old fashioned ghost story unspooling.
