We could not be more excited for Guillermo del Toro’s return to the horror genre he adores and has redefined with Crimson Peak. The haunted house story (or is it haunted?) stars Tom Hiddleston (Thor: The Dark World), Jessica Chastain (A Most Violent Year, Interstellar) and Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland).
The first photos from Crimson Peak have arrived and we’ve got initial looks at all three stars, and judging by the period piece costuming and haunting decor, this looks like a del Toro masterpiece -- even from these first images.
Wasikowska stars as a young woman who falls in love with Hiddleston. When he takes her back to his childhood home, she meets his sister (Chastain).
Chastain’s character does not take too kindly to this new female presence in the house. Wasikowska also discovers a familial past that is just this side of terrifying.
Crimson Peak’s first trailer should arrive any week now, as the film is set to haunt our Halloween with its October 16 release date. It also reunites del Toro with Charlie Hunnam. Check out the two of them and their last work and watch Pacific Rim online.
