The acclaimed director Guillermo del Toro returns to the horror genre delivering a distinctive and varied film terror's friends waited anxiously. The ' Peak ' Crimson consists of a relatively expanded range topics. Gothic romanticism, ghost stories, diabolical intrigues, mystery, drama and supernatural terror solid nature makes new work of del Toro quite interesting but without the coveted triumph in the horror movie as I expected.
The events are taking place somewhere in the late 19th century and early 20th, initially in the US and later in provincial England. A young writer of ghost stories (Mia Wasikowska) which sees the ghost of his dead mother of some moments, fascinated by a mysterious Englishman inventor (Tom Hiddleston) who approached the businessman's father in order to secure funding for its anecdotal clay mining machine. The suspicious father of Edith rejects the Englishman and asks him not to love his daughter can relax now. Until the father killed violently by a shadowy figure and his daughter finally marries the Englishman moving even at his mansion in England.
In the new and somewhat sarabaliasmeno House the girl will not be able to find the serenity expected as eerie pictures ghost terrorizing the blood while making innuendos about the suspected role of her husband and his sister (Jessica Chastain) which resides in the same House too. What really happens? What is it that hide the two brothers and what is the role of protagonist in their plans?
Initially, the role of the mysterious stranger who seduces the protagonist was to be given to Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock). For unknown reasons but Cumberbatch retired and was replaced by good friend Tom Hiddleston, who even demanded and the blessing of first to go all well.
Certainly the case interesting. It has mystery acting always in favour of a horror movie. Also 2-3 not impressive but interesting twists elevate the ' Peak ' Crimson eyes and enhance feelings of uncertainty and dread. Unfortunately, the del Toro's film failed to disassociate themselves from the cliches and platitudes of haunted houses and ghost stories somehow serving xanazestameno food.
But does with finesse and artistic mood so singling out from the pile of trivial ghost stories. If anything supported by a talented cast that does a pretty good job on the interpretive part. The Director del Toro triumphs highlighting wonderful, awe-inspiring decorations, fabulous costumes, spectacular shots inside and outside premises while revealing how narrative with super well-known worship of insects. In addition his work has a dense atmosphere (something that is missing from many new horror films), Frank eroticism, convincing tragedy and an unexpected escalation of gore that little survived but evolved into parody.
Can the "Crimson Peak" might not be the top horror film of 2015 (as you probably waited for some) but never ceases to fascinate and Captivate variously. Maybe if more space is given to the Thoroughbred terror and replenished scenario with smarter and more original ideas, ' Crimson ' Peak would be a future classic horror film. That would rather not get into this category does not mean that we will forget soon.

Careful direction in General with emphasis in bold colors and elegant decorations, rich atmosphere with an aura of mystery and terror, very good performances, Gothic aesthetics, unexpectedly increased gore, a few interesting scenario twists.
Scenario beyond 2-3 small surprises not offer some renewal in the horror genre regurgitating similar horror motifs and clichés of ghost stories. Also distinguished incomplete development of character played by Charlie Hunnam while towards the end of the action almost ridiculed by with uncertain actions of the protagonists.
