Horror Scenes I Love: The Arrival At Allerdale Hall in Crimson Peak


Since today is Guillermo del Toro’s birthday, it only seems appropriate that today’s scene that I love comes from my favorite del Toro film.

In this scene from Crimson Peak, Thomas bring Edith to Allerdale Hall for the first time and it’s both hauntingly beautiful and rather frightening at the same time.  The same thing can be said for this film itself and perhaps all of del Toro’s work.  I just love the gothic atmosphere of the location.  Edith is determined to see the positive.  Thomas’s personality is already starting to change as the weight of returning to Allerdale starts to push in on him.  The mansion has already started to sink back into the Earth.  It’s just a wonderfully put-together scene, one that sets the mood for the rest of this sadly underrated film.
