Producer- Guillermo del Toro

Cast- Mia Vasikowska and Tom Hiddleston

Here chilling horror gives way to admiration. After all, the old manor Allerdale, dubbed the “Crimson Peak”, where the will of dark and sinister rock drags the poor and fragile Edith (Mia Vasikovska), is luxurious and fascinates with its gloominess. It will be the place of incredible, mysterious and tragic events. The huge house will turn into a kind of living monster, with fancy bathrooms, with gloomy basements, with a ceiling, from the opening of which leaves are slowly falling.Although around the estate you will not see a single tree: everything is covered with white snow. And in the huge rooms ghosts are walking, visiting the sick Edith at night and trying to open her eyes to the cruel truth. And her husband is a handsome aristocrat Thomas Sharp (Tom Hiddleston) and his sensually attractive sister Lucille (Jessica Chastain) so organically and spectacularly fit into the panorama of the inner world of this enormous crypt, which sometimes involuntarily penetrate to these villains with sympathy. Perhaps this is because the charm of the film is predetermined by the desire of Guillermo del Toro to furnish all the supposed horrors with the special beauty of nature, against which even a machine drawing red clay seems to be a big and bright toy.

Producer- Francis Ford Coppola

Cast- Winona Ryder, Gary Oldman, Keanu Reeves

An aspen stake, a silver bullet, garlic, and the coolest spells — nothing to do with the legendary vampire Dracula. Any centuries-old remedy against it that the poultice is dead. Such is Count Dracula in the magnificent performance of Gary Oldman, it is around this brilliant bloodsucker that spectacular events unfold.Sleepy foggy London and gloomy Transylvania, where his crypt is located, become a place where eternal evil faces the forces of good. This is an exciting, subtle, brutal and at the same time very gentle love story in which a man turned into a terrible, vengeful vampire. Dracula's reincarnation, then into an evil fanged bat, or into an elegant London gentleman, or into an old man in a red flowing cloak (he is not averse to turning even into a cat or a bat, so as to slip imperceptibly into his victims) takes place against a background that magically attracts us. The castle of the count, the old garden, the road to the Dracula’s home estate is fanned by an alarming light of sorcerers, giving everything an unprecedented beauty. And could the girls-spectators be kept from sigh of envy, when the charming vampire whispers to Mina (Winona Ryder): "I crossed the oceans of time to find you!" And somehow at that moment you forget about the ruined souls of Dracula, which he did not spare for its immortality, feeding on human blood. The film seems to be saturated with sensuality, sexuality: it’s not for nothing that the role of one of the vampires (count's brides) Coppola invited the seductive Monica Bellucci. I must say that the cast was chosen with special care.Superbly played the image of Van Helsing Anthony Hopkins, flashed talent of Winona Ryder. But Keanu Reeves - no offense to a Hollywood star - the whole film played with a wooden facial expression. Later, Coppola will regret his choice: after all, he wanted Jonathan performed by Reeves to be more sexual and temperamental.

Producer- Christoph Hahn

Cast- Samuel Lebyan, Mark Dacascos, Monica Bellucci

The mysterious, bloodthirsty Zhevodansky beast, suggestive of fear and horror at the neighborhood, eating people with impunity, turned out to be the creation of real monsters in human form. This will be found out in the final of the film, in which a sea of ​​blood will be shed and nearly all the inhabitants of the city will be mired in a web of intrigues. Thick dark forest, steep mountain paths, dark labyrinths of the dungeon, where danger lurks around every corner. The local nobility in masks, gathered around the fire, the cage with the Beast, Mani Indian (Mark Dacascos). This picturesque canvas with a kaleidoscope of incredible events does not allow us to break away from this exciting spectacle for more than two hours.Tension and fear, mixed with admiration for the mystical atmosphere that inspires anxiety, dilutes the presence in the picture of the courtesan Sylvia, the secret agent of the Pope (Monica Bellucci). And, naturally, above all this feast of horror and blooming obscurantism stands the figure of the master of the Zhevodansky beast - the refined aristocrat, the cunning villain Jean-François de Morangis (Vincent Cassel).

Cast- Hugh Jackman and Kate Beckinsale

The number of vampires, werewolves, beautiful flying witches, evil monsters and the dead in the picture just rolls over. And in this phantasmagoria the feeling of fear is completely lost, the horror moves aside to let the viewer enjoy the magnificent spectacle, in which the protagonist Van Helsing (Hugh Jackman) from an automatic crossbow hits all evil spirits. Count Dracula, his three brides, Victor Frankenstein - who only didn’t bring into the picture according to his script Stephen Sommers! In this mess of art, it is sometimes difficult to figure out who the hero is here and who is the villain.Because the time is neroven - and Van Helsing himself can turn into a werewolf and attack her loyal assistant, Princess Anna (Kate Beckinsale). Impressive creative delights creators of the film. For example, the novice Carl (David Wenham) finds an old canvas, which depicts two knights with swords and armor. And he has almost hair on his head stand on end when they come to life and begin to fight with each other. One in the image of a werewolf, the other in the form of a huge bat. The leaden sky, the fires of the fires, the ice fortress, the magic mirror portal, and the fierce fights - in general, a real fairy tale for adults who have missed their glorious childhood.

And Valerie does not feel fear and horror, the monster even seems to her painfully familiar.
