-Plot:
In Buffalo, New York, 1887, American heiress Edith Cushing (Sofia Wells), the young daughter of wealthy businessman Carter Cushing (Jim Beaver), is visited by her recently deceased mother’s black, disfigured ghost who warns her, “Beware of Crimson Peak.” Fourteen years later in 1901, Edith (Mia Wasikowska), a budding author, meets Sir Thomas Sharpe (Tom Hiddleston), an English baronet who has come to the United States with his sister, Lucille (Jessica Chastain), to seek investors for his clay-mining invention. Unimpressed with Sharpe’s previous failures to raise capital, Cushing rejects Thomas’s proposal. Edith’s mother’s spirit once again visits her, bearing the same warning.
