Romance and Murder? Count me in! Crimson Peak is the perfect movie for those who enjoy a good spooky love story with scenes that will make you do a double take. This movie was given 6.5 out of a rating of 10 from IMDb and a 73% rating from Rotten Tomatoes, directed by Guillermo del Toro and starring Mia Wasikowska and Tom Hiddleston. Characters Edith Cushing (Wasikowska) and Sir Thomas Sharpe (Hiddleston) live in the year 1887 struggling to make a way in the former world of the 1800’s till they found each other. After the sudden death of her father, Thomas vows to take care of Edith and they are married soon after he funeral. But dark secrets lie within the walls of Edith’s new home, hundreds of years old with a dark past that Edith knows nothing about.
I would definitely recommend watching this movie if you’re like me and enjoy a good romance but need the horror factor to keep you on your toes every step of the way. I’d give this movie 8 out of 10 stars.
