Crimson Peak
First screened in November 2015
Director: Guillermo del Toro. Cast: Mia Wasikowska, Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain, Charlie Hunnam, Jim Beaver, Burn Gorman, Bruce Gray, Sofia Wells, Joanna Douglas, Emily Coutts, Doug Jones, Leslie Hope, Javier Botet. Screenplay: Guillermo del Toro and Matthew Robbins.

Twitter Capsule: Goes to some Places, and at least harbors some ambitions with color and tone. But it's tacky and at odds with itself.

VOR:   Replete with ideas about filmmaking, and desires to push and test. I respect all that. Undermined, unfortunately, by a story inadequate to them and by usual del Toro problems.
