Guillermo del Toro’s Gothic Horror Epic Is Now on Netflix: “One of the most visually beautiful films ever made”

Guillermo del Toro

Winter is the perfect time for gothic horror vibes. Something about the cold gray outdoors makes haunted castles and family secrets seem all the more appropriate this February. Luckily, Netflix also got the memo and has added Crimson Peak to their catalog. This Guillermo del Toro horror fantasy might be just the cure to help us through the rest of dreary season. If you do not believe me, watch the trailer and read the synopsis below for confirmation. 

In the film,

“After marrying the charming and seductive Sir Thomas Sharpe, young Edith (Mia Wasikowska) finds herself swept away to his remote gothic mansion in the English hills. Also living there is Lady Lucille, Thomas’ alluring sister and protector of her family’s dark secrets. Able to communicate with the dead, Edith tries to decipher the mystery behind the ghostly visions that haunt her new home. As she comes closer to the truth, Edith may learn that true monsters are made of flesh and blood.”

Crimson Peak was directed by Guillermo del Toro. It was written by Guillermo del Toro and Matthew Robbins. The movie stars Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston, Charlie Hunnam, and Jim Beaver.

Many fans still cannot get over how gorgeous this film is. Most are praising the performances Guillermo del Toro got out of his cast.

I agree with Twitter. This is one of the most beautiful films I have ever seen. The costumes, the scenic design, the cinematography, and the lighting particularly have imprinted on my brain. It is also my favorite Jessica Chastain performance, which is wild because romance is not even my genre. So, this is one of the few times I have no notes for Twitter’s assessment of the movie.
