"There are parts of the house that are unsafe." We've been waiting patiently, and director Guillermo del Toro has finally delivered the teaser trailer for his latest horror project, Crimson Peak. In true teaser fashion, it doesn't show much, but it makes a bold claim that this is del Toro's ultimate masterpiece. It looks gorgeous and haunting, but there's clearly some visual effects that still need to be finished. It's hard to convey too much of the spookiness of a film like this without using cheap scares, and thankfully, del Toro doesn't go for that, and let's Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska and Jessica Chastain shine. Watch!
Here's the first trailer for Guillermo del Toro's Crimson Peak, originally from Apple:
Crimson Peak is directed by Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pacific Rim, The Devil's Backbone) from a script he co-wrote with Matthew Robbins (Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, Mimic) and Lucina Coxon (Wild Target). 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. Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska, Charlie Hunnam and Tom Hiddleston star in the film which Universal and Legendary will release next fall on October 16th, 2015.
