Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak has its first trailer and it’s as gothic and creepy as you’d expect. The haunted house thriller stars Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska and Charlie Hunnam.
Edith Cushing (Wasikowska) plays a young newlywed sharing a beautifully cavernous castle with her beau, Sir Thomas Sharpe (Hiddleston) and his sister Lady Lucille Sharpe (Chastain). The Sharpe siblings have some dark secrets that will manifest themselves in ghostly unwanted visitors.
The trailer shows some magnificent sweeping images of the creepy Victorian estate and wonderful costumes. The cast looks gorgeous and the scares are spine-tingling. Listen to the perfectly eerie cover of Nick Cave’s ‘Red Right Hand.’
Crimson Peak opens on October 16.
