Just finished watching Crimson Peak, and I honestly don’t get what the fuss was all about. The first half was like a slow period piece; I kept expecting the twist in the second half but alas, it never really happened. The cinematography and the effects were excellent, but not enough to keep my interest… peaked (excuse the pun).

Also, that ‘I heard you the first time’ line at the end? Totally something an action hero in a cheesy movie would have said. Come to think of it, being able to fight/run/climb stairs despite severe injuries is also straight out of the action hero playbook and just felt bizarre (and cheap) in this case.

Verdict: eh.
