Guillermo del Toro has been involved with a bunch of ghost mysteries now, and you’re probably as familiar with the formula as I – spooky apparitions gradually reveal themselves to the film’s lead, who goes on to uncover a historical injustice and exact some form of revenge. Thankfully, there’s more to his Gothic outing Crimson Peak than this over-familiar structure, helped in part by Mia Wasikowska’s character never having a doubting Thomas attitude to the paranormal to overcome.

Aflame with color and awash in symbolism, this undeniably ravishing yet ultimately disappointing haunted-house meller is all surface and no substance.

Lacks weight and intensity: a Brontë-esque bauble smeared in twenty-first-century slickness.

Its sombre sincerity and hypnotic, treasure-box beauty make Crimson Peak feel like a film out of time...

Outrageously sumptuous, gruesomely violent and designed to within an inch of its life.

Certainly unequaled in its field for the beauty of its camerawork, sets, costumes and effects. But it's also conventionally plotted and not surprising or scary at all.

So preoccupied with being visually stunning it forgets to be scary.
