Crimson Peak is del Toro's love letter to Gothic literature and movies. Vincent Price and Peter Cushing would have approved. If you're on the fence because it's a 'horror movie', hop down. It's not a horror movie, it's a love story that happens to have ghosts. A rather screwed up love story in spots, but a love story none the less. 4.5 out of 5 bleak moors.
