100 Words or Less: On ‘Crimson Peak’

Crimson Peak

Guillermo del Toro returns to ask the question, “What would it be like if Wuthering Heights was actually interesting?” The film stars big, frilly dresses and freshly starched jackets with a special appearance by all of Liberace’s candelabras.

Originally titled The Shining: Origins, the film was altered at the mere mention of a lawsuit, although eagle-eyed viewers will still be able to spot a horrifically CGI’d Scatman Crothers during the dinner scene. Like most of del Toro’s films, expect it to be really good and not make as much money as projected.
