A new international trailer has been released for Crimson Peak, the latest film from Pan’s Labyrinth/Pacific Rim director Guillermo del Toro.
The gothic horror movie, set in a crumbling mansion, stars Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston and Charlie Hunnam. Del Toro has described it as “a ghost story and gothic romance” and said he wants the film to “feel like a throwback”, citing classic haunted house flicks The Innocents and The Haunting as an influence.
The official synopsis for Crimson Peak teases: “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 will be released in cinemas in the UK and US on October 16, 2015. After attending an early screening of del Toro’s film earlier this year, Stephen King branded it “gorgeous and just fucking terrifying”.
