Despite its narrative troubles, ‘Crimson Peak‘ is a majestic visual experience that needed to be seen. Once more, Del Toro’s directing has not weakened, and he came up with a novel concept that we haven’t seen before in a long period of time. You will not totally fall in love with this movie, but still you will say that it is worth watching for.
