Just saw this. A bit of a disappointment but has some nice visuals going on.
What did you guys think?
Happy to give it a 6/10, myself. Will answer any questions.
Is it worth watching if you just want to watch a spooky movie for halloween with good atmosphere and some creepy vibes? Not looking for a super scary horror movie, but I've heard that the plot is very meh.
Eh, I think if you want jumpscares and spookiness you'd be better off seeing the new Paranormal Activity. Is that out yet? Dunno.
I'd be hard-pressed to call this a horror. More of a thriller, I think.
It's not a movie about ghosts, it's a movie with ghosts. A metaphor for the past.- it's fucking corny, but I'm pretty sure that's what they were getting at. Honestly, considering she was writing a ghost story and was told that she needed to stick a love story in, and then literally the next morning as she types it, Hiddleston walks up... and then it ends with a shot of "Crimson Peak, written by Edith Blahblah"... it's not very fucking subtle.
Having never watched Pacific Rim, it'd be fairly hard for me to say.
In terms of this movie, though, he's fine. He doesn't have as much screen-time as you might think. He plays a noble, well-spoken gentleman. I don't believe anyone would have too much trouble with the role.
What you're quoting was not in my OP, but in someone else's post.
I would argue that there actually aren't a whole lot of jump-scares. There's some heavy suspense going on, but, as I said here >>61780209, I really wouldn't personally lump this in with the horror genre, despite its marketing.
