Some fantastic visuals, but a sleep fest, overall.

I admit that I know many Gothic Romances. This is definitely an attempt to bring back this sort of bygone experience of the modern age by bringing it to Industrial Revolution America. This isn't exactly the best period piece, but it certainly qualifies as a Gothic Romance. As someone who studies this, I am too critical of the details in this story. However, the movie is quite good in its ability to use the supernatural. As a visual piece, it's amazing. As a story, it's okay. Very Victorian-ish though I was hoping for more 18th century terrorist novel writing type stuff.

A solid return to gothic ghost stories, with the innocent young girl swept up by the rich handsome nobleman and whisked off to his creepy ancestral home. The cinematography, sets, and special effects made for a visually stunning movie, with solid performances from all the actors, but especially Wasikowska, Hiddleston, Chastain, and Beaver.

The movie isn't terribly scary, and is on a whole, rather predictable, but for those who enjoy gothic ghost stories, this film is a welcome addition.

Jim Beaver, who plays Bobby on the TV show Supernatural, is a treat in this really gorgeous film. If you like gothic novels like The Woman in White or The Romance of the Forest or Uncle Silas, you'll enjoy this. If you're expecting another Pan's Labyrinth, you'll be disappointed.

There's no suspense at all in this movie. You pretty much know everything that's happening. And obvious CG ghosts are not scary at all. They're cool looking, but the CG is so obvious.

Not nearly as good as the commercials made it look to be -showed all the best parts. Hate that!

This was a really good haunted house movie, with the plot feeling more like an Agatha Christie story or maybe a Tales from the Crypt episode (one in particular, that involved a man marrying and killing older women to take their money...and then of course the women come back from the grave in the end). This is not a horror movie though. It's a murder mystery story that has ghosts appear in it. The imagery is both very beautiful at times...but then also very gory, with lots of blood, especially at the end. I think it's a good movie to watch every year at Halloween.

Not a horror story at all. It is a very twisted and intense romance with some gory ghosts. The acting, the setting, even single glances contain whole worlds within them therefore there is less need for complex and exhaustive dialogues. We get enough information to understand the emotions involved and create our own world of rationalizations. I did not expect to be this engaged. The beautiful imagery was alluringly mixed up with brutality.

Tons of quotes in IMDb. Here are a few:

Edith Cushing: You're monsters. Both of you!
Lucille Sharpe: Funny. That's the last thing Mother said, too.
===
Edith Cushing: Ghosts are real, this much I know. There are things that tie them to a place, very much like they do to us. Some remain tethered to a patch of land, a time and date, the spilling of blood, a terrible crime... There are others, others that hold onto an emotion, a drive, loss, revenge, or love. Those, they never go away.
===
Thomas Sharpe: A house as old as this one becomes, in time, a living thing. It starts holding onto things... keeping them alive when they shouldn't be. Some of them are good; some of them bad... Some should never be spoken about again.
