CRIMSON PEAK is a Gothic horror film, set in the 19th century, in which a young American woman marries an impecunious British baronet and returns with him to his crumbling ancestral home in Cumbria.

Violence

Scenes of strong violence include a man having his head smashed several times against the side of a porcelain wash basin. A deep gash in the victim's forehead is seen early on; by the conclusion of the assault the forehead has completely caved in. In another scene a male character is stabbed first in the chest and then in the face. There is a small trickle of blood as the knife is withdrawn from the victim's cheek.

Threat

There are several moments of strong horror. These invariably feature nightmarish ghosts.

Sex

In the film's only sex scene, a man kisses his wife between her legs, her skirt having been hitched up. There is then partial male buttock nudity as he lies on top of his partner and thrusts down into her. She then straddles and 'rides' him but there is no further nudity.

Other issues include a single use of strong language ('f**k'). There is also infrequent mild bad language, including uses of 'bloody' and 'shit'.
