Guillermo del Toro’s gothic horror “Crimson Peak” stars Mia Wasikowska, Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain, and Charlie Hunnam. The story is set in 1901 were Mia Wasikowska plays Edith Cushing, an
aspiring author who left New York to live in a Gothic styled mansion located in northern England to escape her past. The haunted mansion breathes, bleeds and remembers.

If you are looking for a scary film this is not it. It is not scary at all, the scary scenes are obvious because of the background music and camerawork. The movie is about uncovering long kept secrets.

It's like an old ghost story which people can see and can scare them but not able to do physical harm. The fact is people harm people not ghost. Here the ghost scares Edith (Mia Wasikowska), she marries Thomas (Tom Hiddleston), they live in an old mansion with Thomas sister Lucille (Jessica Chastain) and the story revolves around the three of them and the secrets behind them.

Yes, the story seems generic but still del Toro has find a way to make things interesting.
