At long last the first trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Crimson Peak‘ has been released! Even before the rave reviews by father and son horror icons Stephen King and Joe Hill came in, I’ve been dying to see more from the film and this trailer delivers at every level. Del Toro has long said that he wanted to create a haunted house story and this looks to be the first one in years that is going to be fully worth checking out.
Coming out in mid-October, just in time for the Halloween season, ‘Crimson Peak’ seems to have the perfect release date to capitalize on and this Fall can’t get here soon enough!
The film is set in the Victorian Era where we see Mia Wasikowska as Edith Cushing who has an interest in the paranormal and is being courted by Tom Hiddleston and Charlie Hunnam’s characters. The romance is quickly settled and the story quickly kicks in as we see both the manor they now live in being haunted and something else going on between Sir Thomas (Hiddleston’e character) and his sister Lady Lucille played by Jessica Chastain. That description really doesn’t do it justice though and I highly suggest just making sure to check out the first trailer below!
I’m not going to lie, having already been wanting to see the film this has me even more excited. I’m sure you couldn’t tell.
