"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.

I'm a sucker for anything del Toro makes, his vision and story telling comes straight from my nightmares and fantasies. He did what I only day dreamed about in school and shared it with the world. Trailer just left bread crumbs of curiosity for me and not the typical jump scare at the end. I'll be there opening night.

I pretty much hate horror movies. But just because Del Toro, this is pretty much a must watch. And yes, the lack of jump scare!

Love William of the Bull....hopefully this will be more reminiscent of his earlier films like The Devil's Backbone and Cronos...

I'm really tired of these slowed down, acoustic/piano driven, female whisper singing versions of rock songs on movie trailers.

Am getting a really Tim Burton-ish vibe with this trailer.

Most overrated cast, ever.

Eh, not excited. Hurry up and do Pacific Rim 2.

this looks nice. I can stand everything: style over substance, substance over style or good balance between them. As long as it is done good. Director and acting ensemble makes me believe, so far, that this is possible. I'm awaiting with interest ...

the special effects and "feel" looks cheesy! what happened to Del Toro! This looks way more Tim Burton style ..agree with that comment! UGH honestly the only director/.producer putting out actually scary movies these days is James Wan

This seems to have taken forever to make, will be good to see. Looks quite magical.

I love how Tom Hiddleston is always low-key. Get it? Low Key?? (Loki)??

The three principle actors seems like a lock for a fantastic film. GDT is my hero!

Wow, Crimson Peak looks killer! We need more over the top Gothic Horror flix!

Beautiful poster and promising trailer. Those slimy slender fingers at the end are creepy as hell. Sounds like the story might be kind of like 'The Others', which was superb. For all of you saying this looks like Tim Burton you must've never heard of Dario Argento... the colors and dream-like set design are very much in that vein (albeit there probably won't be too much blood). Also, thankfully, no quirky goofballs anywhere in sight.

I like Guillermo and I'll watch all his stuff. But I've herd him talk about H.P Lovecraft more than once and that is what I am truly waiting for.
