This Month’s Highlight

Crimson Peak

You mean to tell me Guillermo Del Toro gave us an unhinged Jessica Chastain in flowy gowns, Tumblr dreamboat Tom Hiddleston, and Mia Wasikowska, all stuck in a beautiful mansion full of monsters — and society still paid it dust? Now is the time to fix that, because Crimson Peak is coming to Netflix. The gothic romance/thriller stars Wasikowska as a young woman swept up by the charms of Sir Thomas Sharpe (Hiddleston) only to quickly realize Sharpe and his sister Lucille (Chastain) are harboring some really twisted secrets. It’s basically the Rebecca we deserved instead of the Rebecca remake we got.
