Did You Know?

Trivia:
Visually, Guillermo del Toro wanted the film to look like a Mario Bava Technicolor movie.See more »
Goofs:
Anachronisms: The movie begins in the year 1901 (see Carter Cushing's checkbook date). A reference is made to an "autocar" - early reference to an automobile, picking up guests during the rain at Carter Cushing's home. A Ford Model-T, five-passenger touring car pulls up to the house, but the earliest Model T didn't appear until 1908, and it was marketed to the middle class. Automobiles in 1901 were barely more than the "horseless carriage" idea, with buggy-type bodies, wires wheels, and often only a front seat for two. Covered cars with second-row seats weren't readily available, and any vehicle would have been a very expensive, high-end car to function as a chauffeured vehicle for multiple riders in this upper class setting. A vehicle that would have been more appropriate would have been a Haynes-Apperson, Stearns, Locomobile, American, or Stanley, and those probably wouldn't have operated in such inclement weather. A horse-drawn, enclosed carriage would have been more appropriate for the chauffeured scene. One other street scene in New York shows a more appropriate car for the period, similar to the curved-dash Oldsmobile runabout type.See more »
Quotes:
[first lines]
Edith Cushing:[narrating] 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.

A dark love story with a splash of gore., 16 October 2015
Author: jackypetters from United States

Crimson is "of a rich deep red color inclining to purple". It's a color of passionate love, seduction, violence, danger, anger, and adventure - all of which are contained in Del Toro's latest film, Crimson Peak.

Guillermo del Toro is no stranger to adding detailed elements in a film to add depth, subtle or not. In Crimson Peak, his use of color and setting accompany the characters in a dark Gothic tale of love and deceit, with a sprinkle of suspense and gore that take the viewer on an enchanting experience.

Rich color tones stylize the film for a gritty and unique ambiance. Edith, the main heroine, lives in a world where everything is dull and dark. But her presence, however, is evident in subdued yellows, greens, and neutral colors as she stands out in the world she resides in. Her pale skin and light hair also attribute to the innocence that she attains.

The story itself takes the viewer down a dark path, following the love between two people from two different worlds. Del Toro was smart with the balance of action and build up. For just a brief time did the story feel slow, but it later facets to the build up of later scenes.

Although this film wasn't as thrilling as I tend to prefer, it did a beautiful job of telling a dark love story that held hints of violence, making it just as enjoyable.

I couldn't help but feel that Del Toro paid homage to some of the classics, such as The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, Nosferatu, and even his own Pans Labyrinth and Mama with his use of transitions, shadows, symbolism, and sound.

If you're looking for a film that is romantic with a dredge of somber, makes you uncomfortable yet hopeful, leaves you heartbroken but still enamored - all while being visually breathtaking, then Crimson Peak should be at the top of your list.
