I so want to see this movie. I’ve read several reviews on Crimson Peak. Mostly people didn’t enjoy the film, but praise the production values and cinematography. That’s a fair perspective.
One thing I will note, is this film, based on reviews, has an expectation issue. It’s not a horror or ghost story (I’d have love to see a ghost story), but rather a gothic romance, which is a genre unto itself. Admittedly the trailer looks like this is a a horror film. That would screw with my expectation as well.
I must admit that I love a del Toro film, so I’m willing to go see Crimson Peak for myself.
