Critic Reviews of "Crimson Peak"BuzzFeed NewsNovember 09, 2015
Crimson Peak is an effort to make a throwback movie with modern effects and modern sex scenes, but it can't contend with the modern gaze with which we're looking at it.New YorkerOctober 26, 2015
Del Toro builds a tight plot but never develops it; his frames are overdecorated with macabre clutter and smothered in shadow, but the atmosphere of dread never reaches ecstatic excesses.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 22, 2015
All the carefully orchestrated color schemes and all the dark corridors and secret chambers and all the flowing red metaphors in the world can't accelerate the slow patches, or make us care about lead characters.Chicago ReaderOctober 22, 2015
The real wonder is the sumptuous production design by Thomas E. Sanders, whose darkly colorful sets were inspired by Stanley Kubrick's The Shining.San Francisco ChronicleOctober 21, 2015
Del Toro just goes for effect, and the effect he seems to be going for here is something like, "Ew, Guillermo, that's really gross."Globe and MailOctober 16, 2015
Guillermo del Toro's latest dive into the darkness is a sumptuous, beautifully constructed tale that feels both archaic and inviting.SFistMarch 23, 2017
Crimson Peak wants to be a lot of things, and it doesn't succeed at all of them. But when it does succeed it is so bewitching that its faults can be excused.ComplexFebruary 24, 2017
What [Guillermo] del Toro had in mind when shooting Crimson Peak was probably a stylish gothic period piece in the same acclaimed lane as Pan's Labyrinth. Unfortunately, Crimson Peak fails to work on that level.Film InquiryFebruary 24, 2017
Even though it has visual beauty that makes it required viewing on the big screen, I can't endorse Crimson Peak or claim it is anything more significant than a disappointment.Japan TimesJuly 19, 2016
To absorb the extraordinary details, colors, shapes and situations that are rife with layered danger is to witness this director's fierce commitment to his own vision.
