Crimson Peak (Blu-ray release 2016-2-9) is a “Gothic romance” movie, in which a young woman fell for a mysterious guy, who hides something together with his elder sister.  It is not a ghost movie in the traditional sense, because it’s really not about the ghosts.  Hypothetically, with some minor changes the story could remain intact even if the ghosts were to be removed from the screenplay entirely, but this would reduce the attractiveness of it and make it ordinary.  In its current form it’s actually better than a lot of ghost movies, because the latter category often is concerned with scares instead of plot integrity and logic.
