Mia Wasikowska’s Edith has no idea what she’s gotten into by marrying the charming Lord Thomas Sharpe played by Tom Hiddleston, but her new groom and his rigid sister Lucille (Jessica Chastain) have secrets which Edith will soon discover as she explores their dilapidated mansion, built on top of a red clay mine. After the big monster sci fi action of ‘Pacific Rim’, versatile director Guillermo del Toro returns to his horror roots– ‘Mimic’, ‘Chronos’, ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’ just to name three– with ‘Crimson Peak’.
Through all his works, del Toro tends to maintain a feel of stylish suspense and remarkable visuals and that is certainly evident what has been shown from this film. What terrors are the Sharpe siblings hiding in their sinister abode? Through the eyes of Edith, the audience will find out.
Universal has released this montage featuring five clips from ‘Crimson Peak’ which comes out on October 16th, just in time for Halloween. In these clips, we discover that Thomas and Lucille are indeed masking something darkly supernatural from which they cannot escape and see Edith as she enters, unaware of the horrors within. Finally, we get the first glimpse of exactly what else inhabits the creepy mansion.
Check out the five clips below:
Even with the big reveal in these clips, the sense of mystery remains intact. We do get a look at one ghoul, but we don’t really know what it is or why it’s there. Too many movies are spoiled by marketing beforehand, but this teases just enough without giving too much away.
As a bonus, enjoy these photos, some from the movie, others “behind-the-scenes” images of del Toro coaching his actors and otherwise working onset.
When her heart is stolen by a seductive stranger, a young woman is swept away to a house atop a mountain of blood-red clay: a place ﬁlled with secrets that will haunt her forever. Between desire and darkness, between mystery and madness, lies the truth behind Crimson Peak.
‘Crimson Peak’ also stars Charlie Hunnam and opens on October 16th. Do you dare pay a visit?
