Edith Cushing (Mia Wasikowska) is an aspiring writer who lives with her single father. When she meets Baronet Thomas Sharpe (Tom Hiddleston), and his sister Lucille (Jessica Chastain), who are visiting her father to sell an idea for a machine to mine clay to make bricks, Edith is quickly swept off her feet. But when a family tragedy occurs suddenly, Edith quickly marries Thomas and heads off to Europe to her new home. But as soon as she arrives to this creepy falling down wreck of a house which is surely haunted, she quickly learns that not only does the house harbor dark and sinister secrets, but her husband and his sister also have some things they are hiding in this very creepy Gothic horror story.

This is a very, very well done horror film. I cannot say enough good things about it. The sets are stunningly horrible, and the idea of the house being a major character is absolutely true in this case. Mia is excellent as Edith Cushing, and does a wonderful job of playing the wannabe writer and innocent young bride who has to fight to survive when it all goes awry very quickly. The story is extremely well written, as if this is a old classic Gothic novel, but actually Del Toro wrote the screenplay and it’s a brand new story. I have heard that someone is currently busy writing the novel, but as a brand new story, it does, as I said, have the feel of a classic tale, with modern style blood and gore. The gory parts are not the main focus of the film, though, as it’s a classical horror tale where what you don’t see is as horrible as what you do see. Though not absolutely perfect (I thought the ghosts were silly), it’s one of the best horror films I’ve seen in a long time, and I highly recommend this for horror fans everywhere!
