The first clip from Guillermo del Toro’s haunted house horror has arrived, and is a clever choice as it doesn’t deliver any full on scares, but nicely sets the mood.
Clearly from the early part of the film, the clip see’s Edith (Mia Wasikowska) moving in to her husbands (Tom Hiddleston) mansion and asking his sister Lucille (Jessica Chastain) for a set of keys. Lucille chillingly declines, telling her that the house is “unsafe” and holds dark secrets, things which Edith can find out for herself. She can then ask for a set of keys if she really wants them.
Nicely constructed, the clip delivers a chilling warning for horror fans that del Toro has one hell of a spookfest in store, and this clip really does feel like the calm before the storm.
Guillermo del Toro’s haunted house horror, Crimson Peak, will arrive in cinemas on October 16th 2015.
