Crimson Peak is a highly-stylized love-letter to Romantic Horror that favours immersive visuals over cheap scares.
It may be hard for modern audiences to suspend their belief and really take in the full beauty of Crimson Peak. Especially if they go in hoping to be scared. So, I’ll say straight out, you likely wont. But, if you accept it as an homage to the melodramas of the Romantic period, you will be entreated to a film that’s rife with gorgeous cinematography and visual metaphor.
