Saw Crimson Peak today - no real spoilers herein. I describe it as “if Jane Austen wrote horror.”

Yeah yeah I know everyone’s saying it’s not horror, it’s “gothic romance”. But to someone who doesn’t like horror, like me, I don’t know what “gothic romance” means, so it’s a really good horror film.

Case in point: there was one moment near the end where I covered my face with my hands and turned away, to see that my friend J had her hands over one of her eyes. I glanced back at the screen, and turned away again, the other way this time, to see my partner T$ with one hand clenched against his cheek and clearly wanting to cover his eye but unable to tear his eyes from the screen.

So yeah, horror by my definition.

It was better than I feared, not as good as I hoped, I’m glad I saw it but could’ve waited for Netflix. It was really pretty.
