Crimson Peak

2015 period horror movie

Rating: 12/20

Plot: A woman who sees dead people gets hitched to a sketchy guy and his creepy sister and moves into a dilapidated mansion where she sees more dead people.

Largely, this is dull, but these period things aren't really my bag. There are a lot of pretty visuals, but the oozing clay, the snowflakes falling from a giant hole in the mansion's ceiling, creepy ghosts, and all that color seem a little forced, almost like they're just there to distract you from finding out that the story isn't very good. There are certainly memorable moments in this, but I'm not sure it all comes together to make anything all that memorable.
