Reviews


85
TheWrap - Alonso Duralde
While the digital effects are undeniably contemporary, Crimson Peak is otherwise a period homage that mostly plays like a period film, rarely giving in to contemporary notions of pacing and payoff. When the scares do arrive, however, they’re effectively unsettling.
83
Hitfix - Drew McWeeny
This is a film of tactile decadence, such a rich sensory experience that it's almost suffocating.
80
Village Voice - Amy Nicholson
Though this movie waltzes to its own strange rhythm, del Toro hits every note.
80
Screen International - Tim Grierson
Del Toro’s predictably impeccable production design and tonal flourishes help bring the film to life, aided by strong performances from his leads, especially Jessica Chastain, who gives the otherwise reverent proceedings just the right amount of jolt.
80
The Guardian - Peter Bradshaw
Guillermo del Toro’s gothic fantasy-romance Crimson Peak is outrageously sumptuous, gruesomely violent and designed to within an inch of its life.
