“There’s an element of creepiness in Del Toro’s approach but little that’s truly frightening. To his credit, the director doesn’t rely on jump scares, preferring instead to allow dread to build.” –
“…immersive attention to detail …glorious fabrics, …detailed hand craftsmanship, paintings on the walls, the latest inventions and manifestations of turn-of-the-century upper-class life… For anyone interested in all-in, full-freight period re-creation, the film is worth seeing for this alone.” -Todd McCarthy — The Hollywood Reporter
