If you weren’t aware that Guillermo del Toro has returned to real horror with Crimson Peak, then where have you been? The rumoured to be terrifying haunted house horror is ramping up the promotional campaign as its release date craws nearer, and tonight we have a ferocious new TV spot to show you.
While the full length trailer allowed time to build up the atmosphere, setting and characters, this one minute TV spot goes right for the scares, and keeps it there for the entire duration. It’s brilliantly scary, with some truly great moments of pure terror. Man its great to see del Toro back in the genre of pure, terrifying horror and I cannot wait to see the results!
Guillermo del Toro’s haunted house horror, Crimson Peak, will arrive in cinemas on October 16th 2015.
