Absolutely gorgeous cinematography, lighting, costumes, and production design. del Toro goes full-on gothic and I'm quite pleased. Solid acting all around. An appropriate but undistracting score. The CGI wasn't the best but didn't bother me enough to detract too much. Not a perfect film by any means, but extremely entertaining. This one reminded me a lot of DRACULA (1992) (though nowhere near as good).
