First Twitter Reactions To Guillermo Del Toro’s Crimson Peak Surface


Crimson Peak

Guillermo Del Toro’s Crimson Peak premiered at Austin’s Fantastic Fest this past weekend, and while full reviews are embargoed until mid-October, the first reactions to the highly anticipated Gothic horror movie have surfaced on Twitter.

Pacific Rim was a movie which divided critics and even the most loyal of the filmmaker’s devoted fanbase, but it thankfully sounds like Crimson Peak is something of a return to form for Del Toro as he goes back to his roots. It’s odd then that Universal has decided to hold back reviews until so close to the movie’s release, but there have been reports of some behind the scenes issues (they refused to co-finance Crimson Peak with Legendary Pictures upon learning that it was going to be R-Rated), so that could explain why they’re not overly interested in giving it a huge push.

After all, this kind of horror movie is a tough sell with a PG-13 certificate, never mind with an R. The early buzz could still help Crimson Peak at the box office of course, but we’ll just have to wait and see on that for the time being.

The cast of Crimson Peak is led by Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain, and Mia Wasikowska, and it’s set to be released on October 16th. Check out the reactions below and let us know what you think.
