This the season to be scary! Which is ironic since Halloween edition scares me a lot. Being quite new to the horror genre I’m sure I’ll start repeating myself with these movies. It’s inevitable, honestly. But this week, since horror is paired with period dramas, I’m pushed into a very tiny corner. So, I’m improvising. I’m bringing you three movies that have horror elements but are not all horror movies per-say. Also one is technically not even a period drama. All three have one common actress though so I guess that sort of makes up for it, yes?
When the words be aware of the crimson peak are whispered to the young Edith Cushing (Mia Wasikowska) in the beginning of the movie, the meaning of that message is lost until it will be too late. The effect of those words translates similarly to the audience, but when the secret behind crimson peak is revealed to both Edith and the audience, it’s almost like a jolt of disappointment because it happens way too carelessly for it to have a profound effect.
