Ghosts are real. This much I know. The first time I saw one I was 10 years old. It was my mother's. Black cholera had taken her. So Father ordered a closed casket, asked me not to look. There were to be no parting kisses. No goodbyes. No last words. That is, until the night she came back.

There nothing wrong with the acting. There nothing wrong with the cinematography. There nothing wrong with the effects. There is everything wrong about the concept.
Please don't tell me I do not understand del Toro. I understand good story telling and this is not good story telling. This could have made a good Hammer Horror revival if it didn't take itself so seriously. There is no tension and no surprises. The only horrific thing about this movie was that it got made, with a big budget behind it.! Its not the worst move I've seen but its in the top 5. I dread to think what might knock it out of the top 5! It deserves a 1 but I've given it a 2 because of a great line at the end. If it had more of those laughs it could muster being a cult movie , but quite frankly its not original enough. Crimson Peak should be renamed Crimson Weak.
