Crimson Peak - Guillermo del Toro's gothic romance horror

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.

Stars Mia Wasikowska, Charlie Hunnam, Jessica Chastain, and Tom Hiddleston.


Beyond the turn-of-the-century period outfits, this looks like a mediocre horror film. I hope I’m wrong and this is just a lame trailer.

I had the same reaction. Big names, standard ghost story. And those period sets and outfits looked like they could have been borrowed from The Woman in Black.

I wish filmmakers would learn the lesson of The Haunting (1963), that not seeing the ghost is a lot scarier than seeing the ghost.

I watch so many horror films that I’m fine with another mediocre one. :)
