Descend into darkness with the trailer for Guillermo del Toro's Crimson Peak

02.13.2015

It's almost that time for Guillermo del Toro (PACIFIC RIM, PAN'S LABYRINTH) to open up his mind and let the audience walk around in it for a couple of hours, as his latest film, CRIMSON PEAK, now has a trailer! The story takes place in the aftermath of a family tragedy, as an aspiring author is torn between the 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. The film sports an all-star cast featuring the likes of Mia Wasikowska, Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain, and Charlie Hunnam, and you can check out the madness below!

Some lasting impressions of your lead actors:

As always, Guillermo del Toro's sense of design regarding his sets and (what little we did see of) his creatures is in top form. I'm definitely getting a DEVIL'S BACKBONE vibe with this one.  While this is a smaller picture compared to the likes of PACIFIC RIM, there's no doubts that any of del Toro's films demand a theater experience.  Who else is itching to spend some time in that gorgeously creepy house? Is it October yet?!?

CRIMSON PEAK will be released on October 16, 2015.

I think the movie could be good, but the trailer is terrible. There's no suspense buildup, and it already shows too much of the plot.

That's how you goddamn do a poster.

No floating heads, no blue & orange, no text over someone's face.
Some great Bava colors there.
Oh and the trailer is great, first shot had my attention immediately. And anybody complaining about the CGI needs to get their head examined - trailer FX shots are never the final shots, and SINCE WHEN DID GHOSTS HAVE TO LOOK REALISTIC?

I agree with your sentiments about the poster, though I wish they had gone a different direction with the type treatment, in particular the very dated Photoshop effects to "Crimson Peak."

This looks to be a highly stylized film, so the overuse of CGI doesn't bother me. I'm looking forward to this and hope it gives him extra clout to get the Mountains of Madness made.

Ugh, the cinematography in this looks terrible. Looks like a VOD movie. The story seems interesting, but the movie looks like it set digital cinematography back a decade.

They are obviously hiding a lot of the plot on purpose, which is a good thing for a trailer for once. It has sparked my interest though. I still am waiting for his At The Mountains of Madness...

I am looking forward to this but the overuse of CGI is concerning. It reminds me of the CGI in The Lovely Bones and (Del Toro produced) Mama. Not at all what I want to be reminded of. I was hoping Crimson Peak would more resemble The Others. I'm sure I will see it regardless.

This looks like a children's movie. Like this is how I would picture a Goosebumps movie to look like...
Also not a fan of the music choice for that trailer.

The style and approach to this is much different than I thought it would be, but I have faith as a Del Toro fan and remain optimistic. Sometimes it's better when something doesn't turn out the way you expected it to.

As someone who wasn't that impressed with 'Pacific Rim' or 'Pan's Labyrinth' I will withhold complete judgement until I see the film. But this trailer did nothing for me.

I love what I see, but I feel like this might divide people. It's not subtle and the effects seem very obvious, but that's clearly the intent. I like how old fashion gothic this feels, like a classic horror film.

I'm disappointed by this it looks like every other gothic haunted house movie.

At least that Nick Cave cover is different.

Looks good

It reminds me of The Haunting meets the original House on Haunted Hill. I didn't really like Pacific Rim, but this is more up Del Toro's alley so I'm excited.

I want this to be good. I like the cast, but the CGI and house felt like they were channeling The Haunting with Liam Neeson and that is not a good thing.

Don't know if it's me but

does Cobie Smulders just stick out like a sore thumb? Like seeing her in period dresses just doesn't ring true for her particular look or style of acting? Her phony british accent etc? I dunno, I bought everyone else in this trailer but everytime she popped up I was thinking aaaaaaaaaand you're an actress in costume pulling an accent and you belong in the 21st century.

no I am serious. I enjoy her in HIMYM and the MCU.....she just looks out of place in this movie. I dunno, probably just me.

First of all, Cobie Smulder will NEVER stick out like a sore thumb...anywhere.... second of all, there is no Cobie Smulders in this trailer... it think you are mistaking Jessica Chastain for her???

AWESOME

This looked so freaking good. Nice to see a return to the R rated ghost flicks of the past. Del toro never ever lets me down. He can't direct the shit out of anything.

Looks good and the song was a nice touch. But I agree that the trailer seemed random and had no coherent flow to it.

Meh!

Not entirely sold. Felt like it was kinda pieced together like the Ant Man trailer.
