Crimson Peak may be the beautiful horror film I've ever seen. Guillermo has crafted a Gothic love story unlike anything seen before. With all the elements of Jane Austin, wrapped around the mind of Mary Shelly, Crimson Peak manages to pull you in, while forcing you to cower in the corner.

Not a bad family drama set against the historic events of our nation's past, but too bad none of it is real. Well, almost none of it. There was a butler at the White House that worked under eight different Presidents, but his name was not Cecil Gaines, and he did not have an activist son. There was a real man with real stories, I feel this film would've been better suited to tell the truth than to stretch it to send a message.
