The first trailer for Guillermo Del Toro’s Gothic Horror, Crimson Peak was supposed to be released next Tuesday, but it leaked online last night (in crappy mobile phone in the theater form), so they went ahead and released the trailer online for us all today.
I love Del Toro’s work, but thought he was slipping when I got my first look at the big bad in the Strain (is that not the goofiest looking vampire you’ve ever seen?). Thankfully, the Crimson Peak trailer has gone a long way to restore my faith.
The movie is worth seeing just for the cast, which features: Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston, and Charlie Hunnam, but it also looks like it could be a great, legitimately scary movie.
Crimson Peak opens on October 16th.
Legendary Pictures’ CRIMSON PEAK, a co-production with Universal Pictures, is a haunting gothic horror story directed by the master of dark fairy tales, Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy series, Pacific Rim), written by del Toro and Matthew Robbins and starring Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston and Charlie Hunnam. In the aftermath of a family tragedy, an aspiring author is torn between love for her childhood friend and the temptation of a mysterious outsider. Trying to escape the ghosts of her past, she is swept away to a house that breathes, bleeds…and remembers. Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni, del Toro and Callum Greene produce, and Jillian Share executive produces.
