Gothic horror gets the big budget treatment in Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak. Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston and Charlie Hunnam star in the Legendary Pictures/ Universal co-production that promises to be every genre fan’s cinematic fantasy. I’m hoping it’s a velvet-clad Hammer-style horror for the 21st Century.
Check out the below trailer and images which drip with atmosphere…
