My Rating: 5 stars
If you’re interested in getting an inside look into Crimson Peak directed by Guillermo del Toro, this is the book for you. A wealth of information printed on heavyweight, glossy pages with beautiful stills, sketches, background information, and maps from behind the scenes of Crimson Peak. Ordinarily, I wouldn’t go out of my way to purchase such an expensive ($50) book about a film, unless I really loved the film. This was totally worth purchasing and reading. There were insights into the story and characters that you wouldn’t have known without giving this a read. There are also behind the scenes interviews with the cast about how they got into their roles and Guillermo del Toro about how this story came to be. Overall, this book is well-worth reading if you’re a fan of the film and/or novel.
Recommended for: Anyone who enjoyed Crimson Peak, film buffs, fans of gothic stories/imagery.
