Early word on Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Crimson Peak’ is very positive, could be a haunted house classic


When a studio puts an embargo on reviews of their film it’s never a good start, and Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak has just that. Legendary have put a halt on all reviews until two days before the cinema release, however those who saw that film at Fantastic Fest have tweeted their thoughts, and the early word is very encouraging.

There are some complaints about CGI ghosts (and to be honest, they don’t look good in the trailer), but it sounds like del Toro has crafted an atmospheric and beautiful Gothic horror. Check out some of the Tweets below, and as a bonus, a new featurette is also included below.

Guillermo del Toro’s haunted house horror, Crimson Peak, will arrive in cinemas on October 16th 2015.

Official synopsis:

Legendary Pictures’ CRIMSON PEAK, a co-production with Universal Pictures, is a haunting gothic horror story directed by the master of dark fairy tales, Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy series, Pacific Rim), written by del Toro and Matthew Robbins and starring Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston and Charlie Hunnam.

In the aftermath of a family tragedy, an aspiring author is torn between love for her childhood friend and the temptation of a mysterious outsider. Trying to escape the ghosts of her past, she is swept away to a house that breathes, bleeds…and remembers. Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni, del Toro and Callum Greene produce, and Jillian Share executive produces.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
