Crimson Peak Tom Hiddleston as Sir Thomas Sharpe Poster Promo 8 x 10 Inch PhotoThe movie starts at a very difficult time in young Edith's life when her mother has just died of black fever. We are told how she never got to even say goodbye to her mother. It isn't long before Edith is visited by the ghost of her mother with a warning to "beware of Crimson Peak." Years pass, and unfortunately, it isn't until after Edith is married that she even identifies the location of Crimson Peak.
Sir Thomas Sharpe breezes into Edith's life and doesn't hesitate to show his interest in the pretty young woman. He pursues her and singles her out publicly as his choice of dance partner. Although Edith has a long established affection and friendship with Dr. Alan McMichael (Charlie Hunnam), she is still totally and completely captivated by Sir Thomas's attention.
After the unexpected death of her father, Sir Thomas Sharpe swoops in as a buffer to Edith's indescribable pain over the death of her remaining parent. She marries him without hesitation and moves to his family mansion in England which she soon learns is also known as Crimson Peak.
At Crimson Peak, Edith is haunted by even more ghosts who are trying to communicate with her. When she suspects she is being poisoned, she starts to summon the ghosts and to listen to her eerie messengers.
Recommendation of Crimson PeakFirst, let me start here by telling you that Crimson Peak is rated "R" for a reason. Not only is it violent and scary, it also has crude language and adult content. In all honestly, there were a few times when I had to hide my own eyes. I knew I didn't want those images replaying in my head for years to come.
As a whole, and largely because of the mystery plot, I would highly recommend this movie to anyone who has the stomach for it and an interest in horror flicks.
Ironically, considering the mystery plot, the ghosts and grotesque scenes seem to "fit" this movie. They are not contrived to booster the rating to R. It is truly a well earned "R" rating, but do be warned, it is not for the faint of heart.
It is truly the perfect Halloween movie!
