Crimson Peak Review - Careful who you marry!
|The players and the preys.|
Edith Cushing (Mia Wasikowska) is an aspiring author who falls in love and marries the charismatic yet shadowy inventor called Sir Thomas Sharpe (Tom Hiddleston). After the death of her father, Edith moves to Thomas hometown called Crimson Peak and both of them live together with Thomas sister, Lucille Sharpe (Jessica Chastain) in a run-down manor. Years before Edith meets Thomas, her dead mother warns her about Crimson Peak and soon after warning comes from different ‘entities roaming’ around the mansion. Edith starts to dig deeper until she uncovers a horrible truth surrounding the Sharpe siblings and the estate of Crimson Peak. Will she make it out alive and fall prey to a cruel manipulation?
|Heed the warning or pay the price.|
All the main cast consisting of Tom, Mia and especially Jessica was top notch in this gothic kind of flick which was good distraction from a weak storyline. I managed to ‘see’ the twist way before it was revealed. Another diversion was in the form of beautiful costume and set designs. The wardrobe was elegant while the set was creepy enough to send chill down one’s spine. I would not dare to explore the mansion even in broad daylight let alone in dark! I also didn’t like the cheap thrills of CGI capturing the entities, it was scary but didn’t leave much impression after it was gone.

Overall it was kinda of a let-down for me. I was hoping to have nightmares after watching it yet all I got was…how do I say it…my supposed to be WOW but instead it turned into a mere MEH.
