We very nearly got an R-rated studio movie from Guillermo Del Toro with “At The Mountains Of Madness,” but battles with Universal over the rating and budget shut that down. But the director and studio have mended ways (a smash hit like “Pacific Rim” will do that) and del Toro gets to be as nasty as he wants to be with “Crimson Peak.” Leaking a few days earlier than it was scheduled to drop, the first trailer has arrived.
Starring Charlie Hunnam, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston, and Mia Wasikowska, and giving off serious shades of “Rebecca” and “The Innocents,” the story tells the ghostly tale of love and memories that won’t stay buried. Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
“Crimson Peak” arrives on October 16th. Watch below.
